Comic Book Men and Talking Dead get a second season on AMCPosted 1:36 pm on Wednesday, May 9th, 2012 by John 'Spartan' Nguyen
Good news if you’re a fan of either Kevin Smith’s Comic Book Men or Chris Hardwick’s The Talking Dead. AMC has picked up the second season for both shows, giving us 16 half-hour long episodes. Comic Book Men follows a bunch of comic book nerds/workers at Kevin Smith’s New Jersey comic shop, Jay and Silent Bob’s Secret Stash. The Talking Dead is hosted by Chris Hardwick and is a place where fans can talk about The Walking Dead.
As a fan of Comic Book Men, I’m pretty excited to see the cast return including Walt, Bry, Mike, and Ming. For the next season, I’m hoping to see more events outside of the store and maybe seeing some competition from other comic book stores. It’d also be fun to see the crew set up shop at a convention too. Let’s face it, the store always looks empty.
Here’s what Kevin Smith has to say about this news:
“Pinch my fat ass, ’cause I must be dreaming! A thousand thank you’s wouldn’t cover the gratitude I’m feeling right now. And as you might imagine, everyone at SModcast Pictures is in love with everyone at AMC today! Rest assured, Walt, Bry, Mike, Ming and I are suited up and ready to hit the ice for our second season with Team AMC.”
And Chris Hardwick:
“‘Talking Dead’ has been an amazing experience and I cannot pile enough hugs and thanks onto AMC for renewing it. I CAN’T WAIT for Season 3 of Walking Dead, so that we can finally talk about Rick meeting [SPOILER] and [SPOILER]-ing him with a heavy-duty [SPOILER] at the [SPOILER]. And let’s not forget all the rest of the [SPOILER]s getting in on the action! [EXPLETIVE] me! It’s going to be great…”
My one dream with Chris Hardwick? To be able to have Team Nerd Reactor bowl against Chris Hardwick’s Nerdist team. Let’s make it happen, people!
