Scott M. Gimple, Chief Content Officer for The Walking Dead Universe, made the announcement that the show would return for a sixth season in 2020. The news comes ahead of the Mid-Season Finale of Season 5, which airs Sunday at 9/8c.

The panel also gave a first look at the second half of Season 5, which sees the survivors struggling to carry on with every day life in a world fraught with danger at every corner. Can they continue in their mission to do good when the odds are constantly stacked against them? And when a new group moves in against the survivors, will their commitment to help others hold strong in the face of open hostility?
