Deadline and other Sources have reported that the very popular zombie apocalypse series based on Robert Kirkman’s comics is coming to an end in 2022 with a lengthy 11th season. But the beginning has only just begun.
Fans of the once highest rated show on the small screen shouldn’t fret too much at the loss of the mother show. AMC has already given the go-ahead to another new TWD spinoff starring fan favorites Norman Reedus and Melissa McBride in their roles as Daryl Dixon and Carol Peletier. Created by TWD showrunner Angela Kang and Deadverse chief content officer Scott M. Gimple, that as yet untitled series is scheduled to debut in 2023.
As was announced at this year’s coronavirus induced virtual Comic-Con, the pandemic delayed TWD Season 10 finale will now air as a special episode on October 4 with 10 additional episodes to air in 2021 for the current cycle. Tearing a page out of the playbook that AMC used for the end of Mad Men and Breaking Bad, the 11th and final season of the once blockbuster TWD will run over two-years for a grand total of 24 episodes.
The series continues to be the biggest thing on AMC, the conclusion of TWD property makes sense. For one thing, off-screen Kirkman suddenly wrapped up the TWD comics after 193 issues in 2019. The series, even before then had stirred away from its source material way more than 2 seasons ago anyhow.
