The zombies are winning

From THR: This is what we call a no brainer – AMC has officially picked up The Walking Dead for a second season, 13 episodes total (the first season was only 7 eps).┬áThere have been rumors swirling that AMC decided to pick up The Walking Dead for a second season before it had even aired, because they had so much faith in the show, and were they ever right – after a record breaking debut (5.3 million viewers), and a high retention rate for the second episode (4.7 million), this zombie phenomenon has become the top cable show in the golden 18-49 demographic. The show has also been pre-sold internationally through Fox International Channels.

And the dead live on…
