THE WALKING DEAD Season 3 Announced

AMC has officially announced today that it was renewing its original series THE WALKING DEAD for a third season.

Charlie Collier, AMC’s President had this to say:

“Today we are pleased to announce that the ‘dead’ shall live as we proudly renew ‘The Walking Dead’ for a third season on AMC and, globally, with our terrific partners at Fox International Channels. 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.”

Season 2 of The Walking Dead currently airs on Sundays at 9pm and continues to deliver the strongest telecasts for any drama in basic cable history against Adults 18-49 shattering a basic cable record set nearly 10 years ago for a single drama telecast (“The Dead Zone”).

And in case you didn’t know, The Walking Dead is based on the wonderful comic book series written by Robert Kirkman and published by Image Comics.
