Need I say anything other than “yay”?

16.1 million people tuned in to the recent season four premiere, which is a record number for any basic cable show, and the showing in the key 18-49 demographic was particularly good.

I’m not going to go on again about how I hope season four pans out, I’m sure it’ll be great. The opening episodes have already been awesome…and gruesome…but mostly awesome. I look forward to more, MORE! MORE!

We are very happy to make what has to be one of the most anti-climactic renewal announcements ever: The Walking Dead is renewed for a fifth season. This is a show that has erased traditional distinctions between cable and broadcast. Its expanding base of passionate fans has grown every season, most recently – and most notably – with the season four premiere earlier this month, which broke viewership records for the series and became the biggest non-sports telecast in cable history. On behalf of the incredible team on both sides of the camera, thank you to the fans and here’s to more Dead.
