With Season 6 only three episodes in reports are in that The Walking Dead and AMC have renewed for a 7th Season.
“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,’” said Charlie Collier, president of AMC, SundanceTV and AMC Studios. “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.”
Scott M. Gimple will return as showrunner and executive producer for season 7. With still so many episodes left in season 6 we have no idea who will survive season 6 to return for season 7. Season 7 will premiere in October 2016.
