Fox Announces the Return of The Walking Dead

Based on the comic book series written by Robert Kirkman and published by Image Comics, The Walking Dead reigns as television’s most watched drama for adults 18-49 for the last four years. The Walking Dead tells the story of the months and years that follow after a zombie apocalypse, and follows a group of survivors, led by police officer Rick Grimes, who travel in search of a safe and secure home.  The series, which has been heralded by critics as “an honest-to-God phenomenon” (Variety), is executive produced by Scott M. Gimple, Kirkman, Gale Anne Hurd, David Alpert, Greg Nicotero and Tom Luse.

FOX, the world’s leading international entertainment brand, and a unit of Fox Networks Group, today announces that The Walking Dead will return for season seven part B on Monday, 13th February 9pm following the US premiere on AMC.
