‘The Walking Dead’ flagship ends on AMC, but the universe continues to expand

The Walking Dead will end but new anthology series and Daryl/Carol spin-off on the way.

More than a year after the groundbreaking comic series ended, AMC announced today that the television show, The Walking Dead, will come to a conclusion after the upcoming eleventh season. Despite the news, there is still some time before the series finale. The most recent season, which was disrupted by the pandemic, is already receiving an extra six episodes that will air early next year. Then, the last season will run for two years and be comprised of 24 episodes. This will place the finale somewhere in late 2022.

Though the flagship is finishing, The Walking Dead universe will carry on. A spin-off has been green lit that will focus on Daryl Dixon (Norman Reedus) and Carol Peletier (Melissa McBride). It is set to premiere in 2023 and be run by showrunner, Angela Kang, who co-created the series with Scott Gimple.

Speaking of Gimple, the chief content officer of the television universe based on the popular comic, he is also developing a new Tales of the Walking Dead episodic anthology series. It will consist of individual episodes or arcs of episodes focused on both new and existing characters. The plots will cover backstories and other stand-alone experiences. In addition, there are other new projects in the works set in the same universe.  

With the show on hiatus, now is a good time to catch up on all the recaps from our own Nick Nafpliotis.
