Well, no surprise here, AMC’s The Walking Dead, the new television show from Frank Darabont, has already been renewed for a second season, after only two episodes. The first episode set a record for the highest rated broadcast in AMC’s history with 5.3 million viewers. Episode 2 also pulled in nice numbers, gaining an audience of 4.7 million.
If you haven’t yet seen this show then you are seriously missing out. In only two short weeks it has become one of my favorite shows. I had very high expectations for it but they’ve been met. I’m really hoping this show sticks around for a while, at least 5-6 seasons.
If you’re unfamiliar with the show, here’s the official summary:
“The Walking Dead tells the story of the months and years that follow after a zombie apocalypse. It follows a group of survivors, led by police officer Rick Grimes, who travel in search of a safe and secure home. The show goes on to explore the challenges of life in a world overrun by zombies who take a toll on the survivors, and sometimes the interpersonal conflicts present a greater danger to their continuing survival than the zombies that roam the country. Over time, the characters are changed by the constant exposure to death and some grow willing to do anything to survive.”
The Walking Dead is on every Sunday at 10pm EST on AMC.
