The Walking Dead has become a huge phenomenon and everyone in TVland wants to cash in, even AMC can’t get enough. I remember in season 4 of True Blood, in the Halloween episode one of the characters said something like “Didn’t you know, Zombies are the Vampire” and how right she was. Next season we will see a new season of the Walking Dead, a new season of the Talking Dead (where they talk about the walking Dead), a Walking dead spin-off show, the CW is trying out iZombie (a zombie who solves mysteries by eating dead people) and now Syfy has announced Z Nation, another zombie apocalypse show. That’s a lot of zombie airtime, but is it too much? Will you be tuning in each one, or none of the above?
IZombie sounds interesting, but there are definitely to many zombie things going on at the moment. I think like Twlight got everyone on a Vampire high, Walking Dead got everyone into Zombies. Vampires are phasing out, Zombies are the in thing, but people are going to get bored with it soon, and something else will replace it.
Yes, I think there are going to be a tad too many zombies on TV, however, I do like how there are so many different takes on the zombie theme, like iZombie and I Survived a Zombie Apocalypse. It's neat but may be too much all at once.
