Hungry for more! The Walking Dead is renewed for a seventh season by AMC after latest shocking episode pulls in 18million viewers.

AMC announced on Friday that the hit zombie show will return at least once more when its current season concludes, as will its companion chat show, Talking Dead.Glenn is dead, and once again viewers gasp and wonder: “How much more of this can we take?” (Note–In evidence of the show’s incredible popularity, the web was filled with conjecture about whether Glenn is really dead.) On Sunday night, swaying on top of a dumpster surrounded by Walkers, Nicholas (Michael Traynor) looked out at the grasping hands, the ravenous mouths and gave up.

When, on the third shake, ‘without a doubt’ filled the murky blue screen, we knew we had to proceed with new seasons of ‘The Walking Dead’ and ‘Talking Dead.’ “All joking aside, we are so proud to share these shows with fans who have been so passionate, communicative and engaged,” the exec added. “We are grateful for and continually impressed by the talent, effort and excellence on continuous display by Robert Kirkman, Scott Gimple, Chris Hardwick and the many people with whom we partner to make these unique shows possible. The show has been killing it in the Nielsens; it’s the No. 1 series on TV among 18-to-49-year-olds, and the Oct. 25 episode drew a whopping 18.2 million viewers (with 12 million of them coming in that key demographic). Meanwhile fans of the show are nervously awaiting the next episode in the current season, to see if Glenn Rhee really was eaten alive, or if he’s just stuck under the eviscerated corpse of his suicidal Alexandrian frenemy. The last Talking episode drew 7.3 million viewers and is a top-10 show in the 18-to-49 demo. “Thank goodness someone had a Magic 8-Ball with them in our many long internal meetings about these renewals.

Hooray.” Meanwhile the series’ spin-off, Fear The Walking Dead, is set for a second 15-episode series next year after a record-breaking first season on the cable network. Next up for AMC is another comic book adaptation based on Gareth Ennis and Steve Dillon’s superb series, Preacher, which will be developed for TV by Seth Rogen, Evan Goldberg and “Breaking Bad” alum Sam Catlin Glenn, whom we have watched mature from a twitchy man-boy into a loving husband and friend, whose love affair with Maggie (Lauren Cohan) was often the only bright spot amid carnage and despair. AMC will certainly compile more numbers in the coming days as they come in. (UPDATE: The show drew 19.5 million viewers including three days of DVR usage compared to 22.4 million for the season 5 debut.

To invest in plans and communities that will falter and fail, to embrace characters who will be killed, sometimes for no good reason except to remind us that the universe is a brutal place? Just a few years ago, the increasing death rate of regular characters on television in general and “The Walking Dead” in particular sent up howls of protests and sermons of soul-searching. How was the audience supposed to feel safe when anyone – Matthew on “Downton Abbey,” Will on “The Good Wife,” never mind half the cast of “Game of Thrones,” could go at any time?
