Hey, “The Walking Dead” fans. We hope you guys enjoyed the big season 9 finale episode tonight. Now that it’s over, we’re sure at least a couple of you are wondering will there be a new season 10? If so, when does it start? How many episodes will it have and so on and so forth? Well, we can certainly clear up at least one of those questions for you right here and now.
Yes, The Walking Dead has officially been renewed for a brand new season 10! According to the folks over at TV Line.com , the happy news actually came pretty early around the beginning of February 2019. The showrunner Angela Kang was the one who announced it.
She hit up her Instagram account to do it. It was a pretty simple post. It stated just the few, following words: “Season 10! #twd #thewalkingdead.” The post also featured a creepy “Walking Dead” Zombie that said, “Season 10 this October.” It also featured the words: “S10 October.” You guys can view that post on Angela Kang’s official Instagram account by Clicking Here.
This wonderful season 10 renewal news means that you guys can expect to see more spoilers in the upcoming days, weeks and months along with cast interviews, photos, promo and all that good stuff.
TV Line pointed out that the CEO of AMC Josh Sapan has mentioned in the past that he thinks The Walking Dead franchise could possibly stick around for many, many more years in some form. Josh stated of The Walking Dead franchise, “The use of the word ‘franchise,’ we don’t take lightly. It’s not a sloppy or casual word. We’ve studied the best. Some have been around 30, 40, 50 years. We have a chance for a lot of life in the franchise.”
Currently,it is not yet known how many episodes AMC will order for the upcoming season 10. However, we’re guessing it will be another 16. Again, we’ll have to wait on AMC’s official announcement to know for sure. We do know from Angela Kang’s Instagram post that season 10 will start sometime in October 2019.
The folks over at Variety.com pointed out that Angela Kang just recently landed the top showrunning gig just before season 9 started. Before that, she was just a writer for the show. The episodes she wrote are: Season 2’s “Judge, Jury, Executioner,” Season 4’s “Still,” and Season 7’s “The Cell.” She also co-wrote the Season 4 finale episode, which was reportedly one of the highest-rated episodes in the show’s history.
Let’s get into the season 9 numbers for The Walking Dead. According to the folks over at TVseriesfinale.com, The Walking Dead season 9 viewership fluctuated between 6 million and 4 million viewers an episode. The most viewers came at the beginning of the season and then slowly fell off. The ratings for the 18 to 49 year old demographic fluctuated between 2.49 and 1.48. Those also fell off later in the season
The season 9 premiere episode 1 drew in 6.076 million viewers, and it scored a 2.49 for the ratings. Ever since then, it’s been dropping with little spikes here and there. The most recent episode 15 drew in 4.152 million viewers, and it scored a 1.48 rating. Those are still pretty strong numbers for a cable show, but they’re nothing like what they used to be. It has lost a lot of viewers over its current 9 season run.
With all that said, are you guys excited for a new season 10 of The Walking Dead or what? Let us know in the comments.
Alright guys. That’s all we’ve got for this latest The Walking Dead report, but definitely stay tuned for more.
