Season End Status: The post-Rick Grimes era has been well-received by fans and critics, but it has not led to an improvement in the ratings for this show. Still TWD continues to rank as the top scripted series on cable and also outperforms most broadcast network shows.  It has been renewed for a tenth season and I expect it to stick around for at least a few more years.
