‘The Walking Dead’ To Continue For 20 Years, Says Showrunner

The AMC hit is showing absolutely no signs of ending anytime soon, in fact, showrunner Scott Gimple claimed he wants to ‘challenge’ The Simpsons to become the longest-running TV show in history, meaning it will have to beat a huge 28 seasons!

Season 7 has reached nowhere near the levels some people expected it to make, with people even stopping watching it. The fact is, ‘The Walking Dead’ is television’s biggest money maker of recent years. The franchise makes so much money, so why stop it?

Read what Gimple said below!

“We are trying to do 20 years,” Gimple said during a fan panel at PaleyFest in LA. “The [Walking Dead] comic has certainly done it, and I look forward to every issue.

The Simpsons has been on 26, 27 years, so that’s a challenge — so OK, challenge accepted. Done.”


“We try to reinvent the show every eight episodes,” he explained. “We have this story that is a fidelity to the comic book, but we’re also exploring original stuff, and those things help us go on every year.

“We want to try do it better, do things we haven’t done, take risks. It’s scary as hell, but as long as we keep doing that the show can go on and on.”

How many times can this show ‘reinvent’ itself before it comes completely stale? Leave a comment below!
