It was a year ago that Netflix announced it was acquiring The Walking Dead creator Robert Kirkman’s hugely popular show.
A year on, and it’s still a popular show that’s consistently getting new episodes, new cast members and new stories every week.
Now, the streaming giant has confirmed that it’s also bringing back a series that’s been absent for more than a year.
Netflix announced on Monday that it has renewed The Walking Home for a second season, which will be released in 2019.
The news was met with mixed reactions on social media, with fans wondering whether the show should have been renewed.
“This is the biggest disappointment I’ve seen in the history of Netflix,” wrote one fan.
The Walking Home will be returning to its traditional format, but it will be taking its time to get there.
It’ll be streaming on Netflix from March 20, 2019 to October 31, 2019, with a new episode on March 20.
“We’re trying to get it out there,” said Netflix chief content officer Ted Sarandos.
“It’s a great series and a great story.
But, as a fan, I think it’s time for us to really look at the format.”
In addition to the Walking Home, Netflix will be bringing back the popular drama The Circus, as well as new shows that have yet to be confirmed.
There will be four new episodes of the latter series: “The Circus,” “The New Man,” “Androgyny and the Other,” and “The Last Circus.”
“We will continue to deliver new episodes on a regular basis and we are committed to bringing these shows back for years to come,” Sarandots said.
Netflix also announced plans to bring back The Bachelorette, as it has done with many of its other scripted series.
The company has announced a number of original shows to return to its roster including American Dad!, American Horror Story: Asylum, Orange Is the New Black and Orange Is The New Black: All Stars.
“The Bachelorettes’ success was driven by its strong female cast and a commitment to producing and celebrating the diversity of its characters,” Saratos said.
“With a new generation of Bachelors on the horizon, we can’t wait to bring their stories to life.”
