How long can a zombie apocalypse last? At least another ten years, if AMC has any say in the matter.

AMC Networks CEO Josh Sapan told The Hollywood Reporter that the world of The Walking Dead isn’t going anywhere anytime soon. “The Walking Dead is a universe,” said Sapan. “And we have a plan to manage over the next decade, plus.”

The show may take other forms, like it has with its spin-off Fear the Walking Dead, but fans can expect the zombie apocalypse to live on, even if some major characters depart along the way.
