At the Barclays Global Technology, Media and Telecommunications Conference, AMC Networks CEO Josh Sapan had this to say about The Walking Dead:
"We hope that zombies live forever, and we’ve just begun to find out what the post-apocalyptic world is like, so that we’ll be sitting here at the Barclays conference in 2022 discussing the fact that Walking Dead is not over … at that point, I think any one of the companies will have replaced the United States government and we’ll be in a complete free enterprise world in which there are no nations."
I think I just had a brain aneurysm.
Here's hoping that Sapan is being genuine in his love for The Walking Dead (especially because things really got good in season three) and not just feeling a little hormonal because the network's other two cash cows (Breaking Bad and Mad Men) will both be ending in the next couple of years.
