AMC is planning to air a new season of “The Walking Dark” in 2019.
The network announced the news Wednesday at Comic-Con, in the midst of a surge of new season orders.
The series has been on hiatus since December, with the series’ second season slated to debut on Sunday, March 26.
The AMC drama, which will debut as a 13-episode series, is the most popular of AMC’s original series.
It has a weekly audience of 2.3 million viewers, according to Nielsen data, and is a favorite among fans.
It also stars David Morrissey and Charlie Day, who also play main characters in the upcoming AMC series “Better Call Saul.”
Morrissey, who has been cast in the new “Better Livelihood,” said the new season would be the first one he has been involved in since AMC’s closure.
“I’m so grateful for all the support, and I’m really excited to continue the story,” he said.
“The Walking DEAD” stars Robert Kirkman, Robert Kirkmen, Greg Nicotero, Gale Anne Hurd, and Norman Reedus.
The AMC series has earned three Emmy nominations.
The second season of the show, which premiered in April, is currently available on Netflix.
Morrisse and the show’s executive producer, David Alpert, have previously said that the new series will be a new story for the “Breaking Bad” franchise, but did not specify whether that meant the second season would continue to follow the characters of the AMC series or the first.
AMC is also producing a new AMC drama called “The Wolf of Wall Street,” set in the world of finance, for HBO, which is also currently airing.
