AMC has renewed zombie phenom “The Walking Dead” for a third season, says TV Line. “Today we are pleased to announce that the ‘dead’ shall live as we proudly renew The Walking Dead for a third season,” said Charlie Collier, AMC’s President. Dead kicked off its second season with monster ratings. The Oct. 16 opener 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.
In other news, Paranormal Activity star Katie Featherston will reteam with franchise Oren Peli by making an appearance on ABC’s supernatural drama “The River“. Peli produced the series directed by Jauma Collet-Serra . “The River” stars Bruce Greenwood as Emmet Cole, a wildlife expert and TV personality who goes missing deep in the Amazon, prompting his producer wife (Leslie Hope) and son (Joe Anderson) to set out on a mysterious and potentially deadly journey to find him. Featherston will play a member of a TV wildlife team in the Amazon over a multi-episode arc.
