The Walking Dead – renewed for a third series

Posted by Rich Cross on December 13, 2011

Post-apocalyptic zombie TV serial The Walking Dead has been renewed for a third season of thirteen episodes. US Cable channel AMC confirmed that the series would be returning for a third series in light of impressive viewing figures (in the US and internationally) and widespread critical acclaim.

In the UK, The Walking Dead is broadcast on the FX channel, and – in synch with the US – current transmission has paused at a ‘mid-season finale’ point, seven episodes in. The Walking Dead returns to UK screens shortly after the US broadcast recommences in February 2012.

    Love the focus of this blog. I, myself, am a fan of the post-apocalyptic genre and have written a novel about a zombie in present-day, post-apocalyptic America. I am submitting it for publication this month. I have posted the prologue here on WordPress. Take a look and leave me a message, if you’d like: http://zombielovemania.wordpress.com/

    Love this series, lots of depth to the characters, good British actor in the lead role, but i think Norman Wheetus is stealing the show as Daryl.He does not appear in the comic but his character Daryl is the ” Greg Preston” more so than Rick Grimes.
    This PA zombie drama is everything good about the original Survivors and everything bad as the Survivors remake which I believe to be one of the worst BBC productions in history. But after Doomwatch, Survivors, Day of the Triffids and Death of Grass I was spoilt by high quality British drama.

    I hope they keep making the Walking Dead and Falling Skies, but pray they never ever blight British TV again with another version of Survivors , Heck the Survivors remake was even worse than the Last Train.
