It's finally coming to an end - AMC announced today officially that its flagship, iconic series "The Walking Dead" is ending after 11 seasons. Fans will be relatively happy though - the upcoming final 11th season will be supersized, with 24 episodes. The first 12 will air in 2021 and the final 12 will then air in 2022.
Not only that - but AMC has also ordered two subsequent spin-offs of the show, one centering on Daryl and Carol (which will premiere in 2023), and another "anthology-themed offshoot."
Creator Scott Gimple said in a statement: “It’s been 10 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 onTWD, and then, this end will be a beginning of moreWalking 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."
