A no brainer by AMC! Zombie puns.

AMC announced Friday afternoon that The Walking Dead would return for a seventh season. The October 25th cliffhanger of an episode brought 18.2 million viewers to the table. The network also renewed The Talking Dead.

We are so proud to share these shows with fans who have been so passionate, communicative and engaged,” said Charlie Collier, president of AMC, SundanceTV and AMC Studios today. “We are grateful for and continually impressed by the talent, effort and excellence on continuous display by Robert Kirkman, Scott Gimple, Chris Hardwick and the many people with whom we partner to make these unique shows possible. The result: More Walking and Talking. Hooray.”
