The Walking Dead Will End With Season 11

by | Sep 10, 2020

Holy cow zombie fans…The Walking Dead is ending after 10 years of tragedy, violence and gore. It was announced yesterday that the show ill be finishing with season 11, which will be stretched out over two years, with the season starting in 2021 and ending in 2022. 

It is not disappearing entirely, though. Another spin off show, the third after Fear The Walking Dead and the soon to air The Walking Dead: World Beyond, will be continue the story of the shows most popular characters, Daryl Dixon and Carol Peletier, played by Norman Reedus and Melissa McBride. This brand new show will air in 2023, firmly keeping the series on the box. 



*Spoilers for both the TV series and Comics*

The main show is pretty close to catching up to the comic book series, which ended shortly after the Whisperers encounter and ended with the discovery of the Commonwealth, which the show has already set up and expected to be the big ending to season 10. The show and books have always followed the same path, but have taken different directions with their characters, such as the invention Daryl Dixon for the show. The biggest departure from the comics was the to remove Rick Grimes, played by Andrew Lincoln, from the show. In the source material the comics ended with the Death of Rick and the mantle passing to his son Carl.

Talking of Rick Grimes, we have been promised a movie starring the ex Police Officer for sometime, but nothing has surfaced just yet. In June at the San Diego Comic-Con@Home The Walking Dead creator Robert Kirkman had this too say about the film.

“Yeah, I haven’t really talked publicly about my involvement in those Rick Grimes movies that we’re doing with AMC and Universal, but I am very involved in those… I’m talking to Andrew Lincoln quite frequently… I think that to have Andrew Lincoln reprising his role as Rick Grimes is a very special thing.”

Producer, director and make-up effects artist Greg Nicotero spoke recently with SyFy about the films saying…

“From what I understand… the script is well underway… One thing about this kind of situation is people that work at home… you know, writers… they’re able to take advantage of this time, and it’s a good time. I have a feeling that when people push the play button again, there’s going to be a lot of material that’s going to be ready to go, because everyone’s getting scripts, and getting stuff just right to the point where they can get it ready before you start shooting.”

So Covid 19 has given the script more time to cook, which will hopefully improve the final product when it finally releases. 

Whilst the main show is finally coming to an end, one thing is for sure, with The Walking Dead: World Beyond starting in October of this year, and with a third spin off and a film coming in the next few years, the world of The Walking Dead is not ending by any means. Much like the rotting walkers that plague the world, the series will keep on moving forward, even if it’s dragging it’s heels.
