The Walking Dead: Renewed for Season 3!

by at . Comments

The Walking Dead will live to scare for at least one more season.

Following two hugely popular episodes - the October 16 premiere drew 7.3 million viewers, a 38 percent increase over the 2010 pilot episode - AMC has renewed this gory drama for season three.

“Today we are pleased to announce that the ‘dead’ shall live as we proudly renew The Walking Dead for a third season,” said Charlie Collier, AMC’s President. “We are thankful for everyone’s contribution in front of and behind the camera as we continue to make The Walking Dead a unique television experience. And, we are so proud as it continues to set viewership records around the world.”
