The series about a post-apocalyptic world premiered in 2010 and bosses are hoping it will run until 2030.

Gimple, who was speaking at PaleyFest in Los Angeles, said told fans, via New York Daily News: “We are trying to do twenty years. The comic has certainly done it, and I look forward to every issue.

“The Simpsons has been on 26, 27 years, so that’s a challenge — so OK, challenge accepted. Done.”

Please no. TWD reached their cap viewers a few seasons ago and have been declining. It's still one of the most watched shows on TV, but it can't, and shouldn't go on for another 13 seasons. No way Andrew Lincoln, Chandler Rigs, and Norman Reedus only want to do this show for the rest of their careers.

This is not what a 20 year run show should look like. Look at 4.5 million people that tuned in to see who Negan killed and then stopped watching.

I mean, I really still enjoy the show but I can't imagine they would be able to keep it fresh enough to run for another 13 years. They would just continue to recycle the same story lines over and over.

When they say 20 to 50 years... are they talking timeline or actual seasons? I want to say that the comic is planning to kill of Rick, so if Andrew does the time jump in the show, he may only need another season or two after. But the show is such a shell from what it once was. Its awful. I can't see viewership rising.
