AMC has renewed both Talking Dead, a live talk show where guests discuss the most recent episode of The Walking Dead, and Comic Book Men, an inside look at the lives (or lack of) of comic book geeks. Season 2 of both series will consist of 16 half-hour episodes. The respective hosts were ecstatic and even shocked at the news.

“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…,” Chris Hardwick subtly hinted.

“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,” said Comic Book Man Kevin Smith.
