While AMC has already announced a third season for ”The Walking Dead”, the cabler revealed that they’ve boosted the order from 13 episodes to 16! For you bad with math, that’s a little over two hours more of undead mayhem.
The second season rose form the dead with monster ratings as the October 16 premiere drew 7.3 million total viewers — a 38 percent surge over the show’s Season 1 average. Nearly 5 million of those viewers fell into the coveted 18-49 crowd, a basic cable record.
Returning February 12, “‘The Walking Dead’ tells the story of the weeks and months that follow a pandemic zombie apocalypse. County Sheriff Rick Grimes travels with his family and a small group of survivors, constantly in search of a safe and secure home. But the constant pressure of fighting off death on a daily basis takes a heavy toll, sending many to the lowest depths of human cruelty. As Rick struggles to keep his family alive, he will discover that the overwhelming fear of the survivors can be far more dangerous than the mindless walkers roaming the earth.”
