AMC’s “The Walking Dead” has been a juggernaut in the cable television industry since its inception in 2010. Loosely based on a comic of the same name, The Walking Dead takes place in a post-apocalyptic, zombie infested world–each episode following a group of individuals as they literally fight their way to continue to survive. Season 3 concluded last fall with groundbreaking numbers as 12.4 million viewers (8.1 million adults 18-49 demographic) tuned in–a record high for the series. Success like this just can’t be outdone…right?


Season 4 of the vastly popular AMC show premiered Sunday and brought in monumental numbers at the tune of 16.1 million viewers (10.4 million adults 18-49 demographic) . This not only marks a a record high for the series, but also sets precedent as the most watched season premiere in cable television history! That’s amazing!

President of AMC released a statement in response to the huge success of the show, saying,

“Sincere thanks to the fans, who have welcomed The Walking Dead back for its fourth season with the highest-rated episode in the show’s history…we could not be more proud of this show and everyone on both sides of the camera who work so hard to give life to this story of character, leadership and survival. It starts with series creator, writer and executive producer Robert Kirkman, show runner and executive producer Scott Gimple and the director of last night’s episode (and the man behind the make-up) executive producer Greg Nicotero, their fellow executive producers and an extraordinary cast and crew who are giving their all every day. So clearly, thanks to them, the dead have never been more alive.”

This truly is an amazing victory and an exciting precursor of what we can expect this fall from our favorite flesh-eating show.

Tune in to “The Walking Dead” Sundays 9/8c on AMC!!
