I wasn’t shocked by the news that The Walking Dead is ending in 2022, after twelve years. When Rick Grimes, the show’s anchor, left the series after 9 years, it felt like time was running out. But don’t fret you undead fans, because The Walking Dead Universe will continue… Check out the letter that was sent to the cast and crew…
As you may have seen in the press, we’ve come to a very big moment.
After our next, supersized season that will span a couple years, The Walking Dead will be coming to an end.
For all of us — especially those who have been a part of this show for the better part of a decade — this is a seismic announcement. Just to break it down:
Season 11 will be the final, extended season of The Walking Dead running 24 episodes, probably shooting until early 2022. (We say “probably,” being optimistic but recognizing current production-pandemic uncertainties that affect the schedule.)
A Carol & Daryl spinoff has been greenlit by AMC for 2023.
Tales of The Walking Dead, an anthology series, is in development, as well as other possible TWD series/expressions.
