The Walking Dead fan’s rejoiced when AMC announced that their favorite TV zombie horror will be back for a third season on AMC. The news came soon after the record breaking season premiere shattered a basic cable record set nearly 10 years ago for a single drama telecast The Dead Zone. Glen Mazzara serves as series’ show-runner. The Walking Dead comic creator/writer Robert Kirkman, along with Gale Anne Hurd, David Alpert, and Frank Darabont are executive producers for the show. Greg Nicotero is a co-executive producer.
“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,” 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.”
The Walking Dead has brought in more adults (18 – 49) than any basic cable drama in television history! The hit series secured a 2010 Golden Globe nomination for “best television series – Drama,” and won the Emmy in 2011 for “Outstanding Prosthetic Makeup.” Viewers around the world–Europe, Asia, Latin American, Africa, and the Middle East got to view the premiere this past weekend with impressive results, and broke pay television ratings records around the world.
“Over 10 million viewers in 122 countries tuned in live to watch the second season premiere of this highly anticipated returning drama. And, Fox International channels (FIC) will once again be the international broadcasting partner for the series with Entertainment One continuing to distribute in non-FIC markets.”
Below is a “sneak peek” at The Walking Dead season 2, episode 3: Save The Last One. In it, Daryl recalls a childhood memory and the search continues for Sophia.
Watch it Sunday, Oct. 30 9/8c on AMC.
