We're just two episodes into Season 2 of The Walking Dead, and AMC has already announced that a third season is on the way. The renewal comes as no shock, as the popular horror drama has been delivering record-high ratings for the network.

So far this season, The Walking Dead - which follows the months and years after a zombie apocalypse - has been pulling in the strongest ratings among adults 18-49 in the history of basic cable. It has also been setting viewership records globally, with over 10 million viewers in 122 countries watching the Season 2 premiere.
