It’s only fitting that AMC’s “The Walking Dead” will continue shambling forth until it completely decomposes.
Even with a decline in ratings, the adaptation of Robert Kirkman’s comic series is still massive, pulling in over 10 million viewers per week. Heading into the second half of its seventh season (the show returns February 12, 2017), there’s also no end in sight. Even with talk of a feature film continually teased, AMC looks like they’re going to take this series to its absolute limit. Assuming there’s no massive drop in ratings, who knows how long it can tread water. Kirkman, however, thinks it can last at least another 5 seasons.
In the most recent issue of the comic, Kirkman explained (via ComicBook.com), “It took us six seasons to get to 100 [issues]. It won’t take us six years to get to 200 and that will take us to season… TWELVE. And we’ll still be ahead of the show at that point.”
Yes, basing this solely on the series keeping up with the comics, “The Walking Dead” could drag its feet for at least 12 seasons. Can you imagine that box set?!
