“Some fans have just had enough.”
I’m not sure I’ll ever give up on watching “The Walking Dead,“ but at the same time, I do understand why many have. Despite still kicking ass in terms of viewership, the show’s ratings have steadily been decreasing in recent years, suggesting that the once must-watch AMC zombie series has worn out its welcome for many, now eight seasons deep.
But *why* exactly have so many viewers tuned out these last couple seasons? The folks over on Looper dig deep for a video examining several potential explanations.
The biggest reason, if you’re asking me? “The Walking Dead” has unquestionably gotten stale in recent years, re-using storylines and just generally sticking to a set formula rather than bringing any real invention or excitement to the table. A fresh location and new storylines would do wonders to make the show a must-watch again.
Can we please get at least half a season wherein the actual zombies are the threat?!
