IGN posted on Twitter that AMC has renewed The Walking Dead for an 11th and final season set to premier in 2022. With this news they also have greenlit a new spin-off which will follow Daryl Dixon and Carol Peletier which will premier in 2023. The tweet as since been deleted. However, it is not hard to imagine with declining ratings and lack of excitement surrounding the once Mega hit show that AMC would look to finally put an end to it’s misery. What is shocking though is how they all but confirm Daryl and Carol will survive and carry a show on their own. But, until there is an announcement and confirmation from AMC, this should be taken as a rumor.
more on this as it develops…..
It was announced today that Season 11 will indeed be the end of The Walking Dead
Scott Gimple had this to say.
“It’s been ten years gone bye; what lies ahead are two more to come and stories and stories to tell beyond that, What’s clear is that this show has been about the living, made by a passionate cast, team of writer/producers, producers, and crew, bringing to life the vision put forth by Robert Kirkman in his brilliant comic and supported by the best fans in the world. We have a lot of thrilling story left to tell on TWD, and then, this end will be a beginning of more Walking Dead . Brand new stories and characters, familiar faces and places, new voices, and new mythologies. This will be a grand finale that will lead to new premieres. Evolution is upon us. The Walking Dead lives.”
With that Angela Kang will be running the Spinoff show featuring Daryl and Carol. Eh had this to say
“I look forward to digging in with our brilliant writers, producers, directors, cast and crew to bring this epic final chapter of Robert Kirkman’s story to life for our fans over the next two years,” Kang said. “The Walking Dead flagship series has been my creative home for a decade and so it’s bittersweet to bring it to an end, but I could not be more excited to be working with Scott Gimple and AMC to develop a new series for Daryl and Carol. Working with Norman Reedus and Melissa McBride has been a highlight of my career and I’m thrilled that we get to keep telling stories together.”
