Sunday night’s season five finale of The Walking Dead wasn’t just a jaw-dropping episode, it was also a record breaking one. The 90 minute episode  brought in 15.8 million viewers, with 10.4 million of them being adults 18-49. This marked The Walking Dead finale as the highest-rated finale in all series history.

AMC did not stay quiet about the series’ success, AMC President Charlie Collier made the following statement:

“It’s tough enough in today’s competitive environment to command attention and even harder to hold on to it. So, for ‘The Walking Dead’ to maintain this level of urgent viewership in its fifth season – and to end with the highest rated finale in series history is really something rare and remarkable. We’re thankful to Robert Kirkman, Scott Gimple, Chris Hardwick, our fantastic executive producers and the talented writers, cast, and crews for delivering another season of unforgettable and engaging television. And to the many amazing people  who drive the passion for this program across multiple platforms, I paraphrase (and welcome back) Morgan when I say ‘All fans are precisous’”.

AMC’s hit series in the number one TV show among adults 18-49, with an average 14.4 million viewers tuning in for each new episode. The Talking Dead viewership is also soaring due to The Walking Dead’s success. The aftershow brought in 7.5 million viewers after Sunday night’s season finale and featured Norman Reedus (Daryl), Melissa McBride (Carol), and Lennie James (Morgan) discussing the episode.
