Despite a dip in ratings throughout the first half of Season 7, The Walking Dead has remained the No. 1 cable TV show for a record-breaking 5 years in a row.

Thankfully, the comic book author sees at least five more seasons in the show's future.

The show took six years to reach the comics' 100th issue — Negan's deadly game of Eeny Meeny Miny Moe.

The midseason finale brought us to about issue 111 — and there are about 161 comic issues total.

Robert promises the 200th issue will arrive on screen just a little bit faster. "It took us 6 seasons to get to 100. It won’t take us 6 years to get to 200 and that will take us to season … TWELVE. And we’ll still be ahead of the show at that point."

That's a lot of source content to draw from!

Five more years of blue-eyed Rick and Daryl Dixon's arms?

We'll take it!

The Walking Dead midseason premiere airs Sunday February 12, 2017 at 9 p.m. ET on AMC.
