What a shocker, The Walking Dead has been renewed for a seventh season

As AMC isn't comprised of a bunch of idiots and The Walking Dead is still proving to be a ratings juggernaut, it should come as no surprise that they've decided to renew The Walking Dead for a seventh season. As long as the show, which is only three episodes in to its sixth season, continues to throw plenty of zombie mayhem at its record breaking audience, I'm fairly certain that this won't be the last Walking Dead renewal post we'll be making. Also renewed was the Chris Hardwick hosted The Talking Dead.

AMC president Charlie Collier:

Thank goodness someone had a Magic 8-Ball with them in our many long internal meetings about these renewals. When, on the third shake, ‘without a doubt’ filled the murky blue screen, we knew we had to proceed with new seasons of The Walking Dead and Talking Dead. All joking aside, we are so proud to share these shows with fans who have been so passionate, communicative and engaged. We are grateful for and continually impressed by the talent, effort and excellence on continuous display by Robert Kirkman, Scott Gimple, Chris Hardwick and the many people with whom we partner to make these unique shows possible. The result: More Walking and Talking. Hooray.

This Sunday brings another new episode of The Walking Dead, which will hopefully reveal the fate of a certain character whose fortunes weren't looking so good at the end of the last episode. Also set to air on Sunday during The Walking Dead will be the first teaser for Preacher, so keep an eye out for that!

With the show soon to have seven years under its belt, would you prefer that AMC set an end-date for the series or are you happy to have it continue on for many more years?
