After over ten years of slaying zombies, The Walking Dead is finally coming to an end in 2022. However, the universe will continue to live on.
Deadline has reported that AMC has given the green light to a spin-off series starring Norman Reedus and Melissa McBride, who will continue to play their characters from the main show – Daryl Dixon and Carol Peletier respectively. This will debut in 2023.
The eleventh – and final – season will last for an extended 24 episode run. Though it marks the end of the main story, writer and producer Scott M Gimple states that “this will be a grand finale that will lead to new premieres.”
The spin-off series is not the first show to come from The Walking Dead. Fear The Walking Dead will air its sixth season in October, whilst two other shows – The Walking Dead: World Beyond and Tales of the Walking Dead – are both in development. The former is due to premiere in October, whilst the latter is an anthology show that is still in the planning stages.
The season 10 finale had been postponed due to the ongoing pandemic. However, this is finally set to air on 4 October – find out how to tune into The Walking Dead season finale both in the UK and US here.
