first_img We haven’t even seen the results of Negan’s horrific crimes following the controversial season six finale and the creators are already looking ahead to the next, most likely super frustrating, cliffhanger.Ahead of The Walking Dead season seven premiere this Sunday at 9 p.m. EST, AMC announced that it’ll be renewing the zombie drama for an eighth season, which will premiere in late 2017 with its 100th episode.“Eeny, meeny, miny, more. What a joy to partner with Robert Kirkman, Scott M. Gimple and some of the hardest-working people in television to bring The Walking Dead to the fans. And, most important, thanks to those fans for breathing life into this remarkable series right along with us.” AMC president Charlie Collier wrote in a statement.It’s no surprise that AMC would want to keep The Walking Dead around as long as possible. While the season six finale didn’t hit the ratings high of the last season five episode, it still wrapped up its season as the number one show on television among adults 18-49.This doesn’t take into account the popularity of The Talking Dead, the Walking Dead after-show hosted by Chris Hardwick. That has also been renewed for another season. This Sunday, following the season seven premiere, AMC will air a special 90-minute episode.The Talking Dead is the number one talk show on television. Its ratings are so high that it’s only rivaled by The Walking Dead.We don’t know much at all about this upcoming season. Because the previous season ended on such a story-changing cliffhanger, there wasn’t much the people involved could talk about. We’ll find out Sunday who Negan killed, but for now, the actors aren’t saying much.Here’s hoping at least that the story moves this season. The Walking Dead is a show that tends to stall the action, especially on the way to the Negan and Lucille cliffhanger. We would like it if Rick and the crew actually progressed somehow. Stories can only sit on building tension for so long before we want something to happen.
