THE WALKING DEAD just finished its third season and is more popular than ever so of course we can expect to see the show for years to come, but will there ever be an end? AMC CEO Josh Sapan sees no end to the show any time soon as THR quotes Sapan at the Barclays Global Technology, Media and Telecommunications Conference saying, "We hope that zombies live forever".
This is such a tough call. I've always been a fan of TV shows that end after a handful of seasons because once you start getting up there in seasons the show can feel like it's over staying its welcome and I'd hate to see that happen to TWD. Obviously there's much more out there in the world of TWD than just Rick and his crew, giving the writers plenty of potential material to work from, so it will definitely be interesting to see where the show ends up years down the road.
Here's what Sapan had to say:
We hope that zombies live forever and we’ve just begun to find out what the post-apocalyptic world is like,” said Sapan, “so that we’ll be sitting here at the Barclays conference in 2022 discussing the fact that Walking Dead is not over … at that point, I think any one of the companies will have replaced the United States government and we’ll be in a complete free enterprise world in which there are no nations.
