The Walking Dead Renewed for Season 3

This should come as a surprise to no one, considering how well The Walking Dead has been performing for AMC, but the network has officially given a green light for a third season.

When the zombie show first premiered back in October 2010, it had terrific ratings for a cable show, pulling in 5.3 million viewers. Granted, the ratings for the first six episode season fluctuated a bit, but it averaged out at about 5.2 million viewers (with 3.5 million in the coveted18-49 demo).

The Walking Dead returned for its second season on October 16, 2011 and scored an unprecedented 7.2 million viewers for its 90 minute season premiere. Its second episode dropped in the ratings, but still pulled in a perfectly respectable 6.7 million viewers.

Clearly The Walking Dead is a hit for AMC, despite the controversy this summer that involved the network reducing the budget and then letting the showrunner (Frank Darabont) go.

The second season of The Walking Dead will consist of 13 episodes. Six episodes will air before the holidays at the end of this year and then the show will be on a short hiatus until new episodes resume on February 12.
