As a Halloween gift to everyone, ‘The Walking Dead’ just got renewed

While [SPOILER!]’s life still might be up in the air, we know one thing about The Walking Dead that is completely certain: The show was just renewed for a brand new season. And hopefully [SPOILER!!] will be with it.

If you want the above-mentioned SPOILER to stay news to you, stop reading now, because we’re naming names below.

OK that spoiler is Glenn, and it’s been a really long week for all Walking Dead fans. Sunday night at 9 p.m. can’t come soon enough.

At least the news of the show’s renewal eases our pain a little bit. It was also kind of a given that the show would totally continue on through Season 7, but now we know for sure. Also, as an added bonus, The Walking Dead after show hosted by Chris Hardwick, Talking Dead, is coming back, too! We wouldn’t have it any other way.

“Thank goodness someone had a Magic 8-Ball with them in our many long internal meetings about these renewals. 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,” Charlie Collier, president of AMC, explained in a statement. “All joking aside… the result: more Walking and Talking. Hooray.”

Hooray indeed. We’re definitely on board for more Walking Dead and consider this news a big Halloween win for everyone, everywhere.

Season 7 will have 16 episodes in total, bringing The Walking Dead‘s episode count to an impressive 99. They must be saving the big 1-0-0 episode for the beginning of *crosses fingers* Season 8.
