According to AMC Networks CEO, Josh Sapan, The Walking Dead will live eternally. In a statement to picked up by The Hollywood Reporter, made at the Barclays Global Technology, Media and Telecommunications Conference, he revealed he hopes the zombie series will have a long life.
“We hope that zombies live forever, and we’ve just begun to find out what the post-apocalyptic world is like, so that we’ll be sitting here at the Barclays conference in 2022 discussing the fact that Walking Dead is not over … at that point, I think any one of the companies will have replaced the United States government and we’ll be in a complete free enterprise world in which there are no nations.”
This is obviously great news for die-hard fans of the show but fans of the comic books may be confused as to how they’ll manage this feat. Is creator Robert Kirkman willing to stay on board for infinity and beyond?
