Starring: Andrew Lincoln, Danai Gurira, Jeffrey Dean Morgan
Number of Seasons: 7 (2010 - present)
Yes, it's wild to think that the fallout of the zombie apocalypse has been on air for almost seven seasons. The show, which was birthed from a comic book series that debuted in 2003, has made a huge impact, leading the Nielsen ratings in its 18-49 demographic since its third season (even though the ratings for season seven's mid-season finale fell), but people still come back, primarily for those gory-ass deaths. And while Jeffrey Dean Morgan picking up the barbed-wire bat to portray Negan has been the creative jolt that the series needed, it's hard to not get frustrated at how many of these bigger episodes end up producing the same mid results. As long as those ratings continue to stay high, AMC has no plans of stopping The Walking Dead (hell, it's already received its own spin-off series), but critically? The series is falling down, HARD.
