The Image Comics adaptation stars Andrew Lincoln as Rick Grimes, a police officer leading a band of survivors through a zombie apocalypse.
Hurd told the AMC blog: "[Creator Robert Kirkman is] sitting next to me right now, and we've talked about how our ensemble cast members either transcend or fall victim to their baser human instincts, so there's plenty of fodder for at least 27 seasons."
The first footage from the series will be screened at this year's Comic-Con in San Diego.
"We're absolutely thrilled that AMC has agreed to let us screen exclusive footage from Frank's pilot episode for our Comic-Con audience," said Hurd.
"Frank and I are fans ourselves, and we want fans of The Walking Dead to see sequences that they can really sink their teeth into."
The drama will air in October on AMC.
