AMC Networks Chief Executive Josh Sapan had some heartening words for fans of "The Walking Dead" when he spoke Wednesday at a media conference, according to The Hollywood Reporter.
Speaking of the ending of AMC’s "Breaking Bad" and "Mad Men," Sapan said, "We’ll all suffer from some minor heartbreak when these shows come to a natural close."
But he added that he sees much more life left in the zombie series "The Walking Dead," which is in its third season.
Said Sapan: "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.”
