Andrew Lincoln

AMC has renewed The Walking Dead for a fifth season, the network announced Tuesday.

"We are very happy to make what has to be one of the most anti-climactic renewal announcements ever: The Walking Dead is renewed for a fifth season," AMC President Charlie Collier said in a statement.

On behalf of the incredible team on both sides of the camera, thank you to the fans and here's to more Dead."

NATALIE:
Peter and his daughter Henrietta reunited last season, but her run-in with her mom Olivia will surprise you. "It takes on a slightly different flavor than I think you would anticipate," Joshua Jackson tells us, noting that it will happen very quickly in the season premiere.

The history will surprise you when you realize there's a lot of emotions going on for reasons that you don't know yet, but you will."
