Some fans of the AMC zombie drama "The Walking Dead" are convinced the network has let it slip that the show has been renewed for a fourth season, reports James Hibberd in EW.com’s Inside TV.
The network’s website posted a viewer contest to win a trip to the show’s fourth season, although AMC hasn’t yet announced a fourth season and the third hasn’t yet premiered, the story points out. Some fans are taking the website’s content as confirmation that AMC has renewed the show for a fourth season.
Nevertheless, an AMC representative said the show hasn’t yet been renewed.
In a statement, the network said: "There was no inadvertent pickup of the series. Season three premieres October 14th. Promotional sweepstakes give-aways which involve prospective future season visits or opportunities are common practice in television. The sweepstakes rules clearly state AMC may award a substitute prize if the future season opportunity is not available."
