Laurie Holden discusses 'Walking Dead' renewal

 It was recently announced by AMC, that their hit series The Walking Dead was being renewed for a second season and will return for a 13-episode run, expected to air in October 2011.

 This left wondering many fans of the show, why did they have to wait so long to see the series return. Actress Laurie Holden discussed with Collider the extended break between seasons: "I wish that we were shooting sooner, but it's just the way that it is. It's just the reality. They've got to pen 13 scripts and get the production up and rolling, and that just takes time. I'm hoping that people love our show enough that they'll be patient, and it will be okay that we're not going to be back for another year."

 Holden also pointed out that this is not the first time a situation like this has happened: "I think this [sort of break] is common for a lot of shows. Lost went off the air for a while. Mad Men goes off the air for awhile. Maybe it's not too out of the norm."

 The actress also admitted how she was unsurprised that the show got picked so soon for a second season:
"The ratings were quite spectacular," Holden said. "I think that just based on the numbers alone, AMC was like, 'Okay, let’s run with it'."

 The six-part first season of The Walking Dead concludes on December 5 in the US. 

 Are you capable of waiting so long until the show returns with new episodes?
