The cable net announced on Monday that it’s green lit a 13-episode second season of the new series, which debuted on October 31.

The show has gone on to break ratings records and not just on the network. According to their announcement, the show has reached more Adults 18-49 than any other show in the history of cable television.

The series is also being carried to the world stage by Fox International Channels’ (FIC) — who also is picking up the second season following the show’s ratings success in 120 countries in Europe, Latin America, Asia and the Middle East.  Those numbers make it the highest-rated original series premiere ever to air on FIC simultaneously worldwide.

“I wish all programming decisions were no-brainers like this one,” said Sharon Tal Yguado, SVP Scripted Programming for Fox International Channels. “The Walking Dead is a TV masterpiece on so many levels. We want at least 10 seasons, if not more. Kudos to AMC!”
