The Walking Dead has been renewed for a fifth season, it has been confirmed.

AMC announced that the zombie drama will return, with Scott Gimple continuing as showrunner.

The network's president Charlie Collier said yesterday (October 29): "We are very happy to make what has to be one of the most anti-climactic renewal announcements ever. The Walking Dead is renewed for a fifth season. 

"This is a show that has erased traditional distinctions between cable and broadcast."

Collier added: "Its expanding base of passionate fans has grown every season, most recently - and most notably - with the season four premiere earlier this month, which broke viewership records for the series and became the biggest non-sports telecast in cable history. 

"On behalf of the incredible team on both sides of the camera, thank you to the fans and here's to more Dead."
