Before the big Season 5 premiere, AMC’s hit zombie series was renewed for another season on Oct. 7.
“We could not be more excited for October 12th as we share new episodes of The Walking Dead with fans around the globe,” said AMC’s President Charlie Collier in a statement. “In advance of Sunday’s season five premiere, AMC proudly confirms a sixth season order of this extraordinary series. Thank you to Robert Kirkman, Scott Gimple, the terrific executive producers, and the entire team who brings this compelling world and these rich characters to life. There’s plenty more Dead ahead thanks to their impressive, collective effort.”

Daryl Dixon Speaks: Norman Reedus On ‘The Walking Dead’ Success
“The writing, the acting and the directing is so good right now,” Norman Reedus tells HollywoodLife.com EXCLUSIVELY. “We are such a well-oiled machine right now and we all know what works.”
He adds that viewers can expect the best yet in Season 5. “I think they are now trying to push the envelope even more, which is very interesting since the storytelling is so good. I think it would be easy to do the same thing over and over again but they are going to take it out of the ball park and try new things. That makes it interesting and worth watching!”
