At 13 episodes a season….that makes 3 complete seasons worth. Kirkman, the writer for the comic, expects to keep writing the comic as long as he can. I believed he’s envisioned it as a zombie story without an ending.
At first I thought someone like HBO, Showtime, or Starz should’ve picked up this series because of the gore, violence, sex, language and other such themes. I thought AMC would be too tame for this type of series. I was wrong. I’m pleased with what they’re showing.
There are some parts of the comic that seems too graphic to show on AMC. I don't see how they will incorporate that in the show. Other than that, I think it could be a successful series for several seasons.
