The Walking Dead renewed for season eight
Ahead of its season seven premiere on Sunday in the US and Monday here in the UK, AMC has renewed The Walking Dead for an eighth season. The show still attracts large viewing figures and the mystery of who Negan killed has audiences eagerly awaiting new episodes of the zombie drama. It seems that the apocalypse is going to continue for some time yet.
Charlie Collier, president of AMC, SundanceTV and AMC Studios made the following statement.
"Eeny, meeny, miny, more. What a joy to partner with Robert Kirkman, Scott M. Gimple and some of the hardest-working people in television to bring The Walking Dead to the fans. And, most important, thanks to those fans for breathing life into this remarkable series right along with us." - AMC
16 new episodes will air from the latter half of 2017. Season seven starts at 9pm on Fox UK on Monday 24th October.
