While the internet concocts creative conspiracy theories explaining why you-know-who may or may not have been permanently killed last week (jury’s still out on that one), one thing’s for certain—the zombie apocalypse will continue to rage on for Rick and the gang. AMC announced Friday that The Walking Dead will return for a seventh season.

Casting hasn’t been confirmed yet (because, you know, spoilers) but Deadline reports that the popular aftershow Talking Dead will also be coming back. Hosted by self-proclaimed nerd Chris Hardwick, the live talk show features a number of celebrity guests like Keegan-Michael Key and Kevin Smith, plus series stars including Norman Reedus and Steven Yeun.

"We are so proud to share these shows with fans who have been so passionate, communicative and engaged,” president of AMC, SundanceTV and AMC Studios Charlie Collier said. “We are grateful for and continually impressed by the talent, effort and excellence on continuous display by Robert Kirkman, Scott Gimple, Chris Hardwick and the many people with whom we partner to make these unique shows possible. The result: More Walking and Talking. Hooray.”

Hooray, indeed.
