HOLLYWOOD, Calif. --- Producers of the popular Walking Dead TV series have canceled the show after hearing a particularly convincing Adventist sermon on the state of the dead.
The producers claim that Adventist Biblical understanding about the dead being asleep has been enormously encouraging to them after so many years of having to dream up scenarios involving their core cast evading zombies.
"We've had a great run with this show and it is time to lay it to rest," said show spokesperson Sigue Corriendo.
Writers are hard at work trying to find a way to gracefully sunset the series at the end of the season.
Corriendo says producers decided a few days ago to explore bringing in Adventist consultants to make sure that future plot developments were theologically accurate.
After reviewing the Adventist denomination's track record with managing TV series, Walking Dead bosses were sure they had found the help they needed.
"All it took was hearing about how they dealt with The Record Keeper," said Corriendo.
"These guys know how to kill off a good show!"
