Great News for Fans of ‘The Walking Dead’: Spoiler-Free!

Will seven be the lucky number for 'The Walking Dead'? 

Little surprise but AMC announced today that it has renewed the mega-blockbuster zombie hit for another season, making it a perfect septet.

Also giving a little another shot at life, 'Walking Dead's after-show, 'The Talking Dead' hosted by Nerdist impressario Chris Hardwick.

The show's stars may be limping through existence, but it's ratings aren't.  The latest episode delivered a staggering 18.2 million viewers to the AMC network – as well as  zombie apocalypse levels of outrage over the unthinkable cliff-hanger of an ending.

While there's no saying what fate awaits Rick and his walker fighting buddies in the weeks ahead, the show itself can breathe easy for another year.
