"The Walking Dead" Could Survive 12 Seasons - Bloody Disgusting!

“The Walking Dead” Could Survive 12 Seasons

The Walking Dead

AMC’s “The Walking Dead” – the adaptation of Robert Kirkman’s awesome Image comic series – is entering its fifth season this coming October. For any series to make it this far, and to syndication, is quite a feat. The cable zombie series is one of the most popular shows on television, and with no end it sight AMC is drooling for more. Even with a planned spinoff series, the cabler is planning to take “The Walking Dead” as far as 12 season. That’s heading into “The X-Files” territory (they had nine and two movies).

“The Walking Dead” producer David Alpert spoke at the ‘Produced By’ panel at the PGA this past weekend, where he shocked audiences with plans of 12 seasons, Indiewire reported.

“I happen to love working from source material, specifically because we have a pretty good idea of what season 10 is gonna be. We know where season 11 and 12…we have benchmarks and milestones for those seasons if we’re lucky enough to get there.”

This news would run “The Walking Dead” all the way until 2021. That hurts my head just saying aloud.

Andrew Lincoln responded to the news this morning…

    LOL great gif. But yeesh. TWD running that long? Really? I guess they could use the big plot point that happened in issue 127 to freshen things up if they wanted…

    I don’t mind another 7 seasons. It’s one of my favorite shows and it’s also one of the few shows that made way for genre shows on tv.

    i’m perfectly fine with this show going and going. i just think it shouldn’t be beholden to the follow the comic. let it start to 100% do it’s own thing. for example GET THEM OUT OF G’DAMN Georgia. lol. seeing the survivors maybe on/by the water or up north a bit….SOMETHING/ANYTHING! they need to shake it up a bit.
