AMC quietly confirms there's gonna be a 4th season of Walking Dead

There's a long road ahead for AMC's The Walking Dead. Next month, the zombie hit returns for its third season, and the network currently has its eyes on a fourth. But they've indirectly confirmed what most us all already suspected.

The Walking Dead is working with the American Red Cross for an upcoming blood drive. The network announced the partnership (on the official TWD blog) while inadvertently breaking some major news: The Walking Dead has been renewed for a fourth season.

Here's the original entry:

Just because the walkers are mindless flesh-eaters doesn't mean you have to be so inconsiderate. AMC and The Walking Dead are joining forces with the American Red Cross for a nationwide blood drive that, aside from being a great way to show your humanity, also might win you a 3-day, 2-night trip to the Season 4 production of The Walking Dead in 2013.

We've never seen such a bright future for such a grim show. The Walking Dead is AMC's highest-rated program; why wouldn't they keep it around? The arrival of Michonne and the Governor will probably rope in even more viewers. It's a smart move on their part.

The Walking Dead season three premieres Oct. 14.
