Emmy award-winning The Walking Dead to air final season but spin-offs teased

The Walking Dead is set to take its final breath.

The post-apocalyptic horror series will come to an end after the 11th season airs in 2022.

Based on the comic book series of the same name by Robert Kirkman, Tony Moore and Charlie Adlard, the series premiered in 2010 and follows survivors of an apocalypse who are trying to stay alive whilst under the near-constant threat of attacks from zombies — known as walkers.

On top of that, they also have to face ongoing hostilities with other groups of human survivors.

Over the years it has been singled out as one of the best shows of the decade and has been nominated for 16 Emmy’s since 2011.

Now, it has been announced the final season is nigh, but it will run over two years and include a massive 24 episodes (up from the usual 16).

However, fans of the series need not worry, with the announcement also revealing that yet another spin-off is in the works.

Fan favourites Daryl (Norman Reedus) and Carol (Melissa McBride)—who are the only two characters to have been on screen since season 1—will be getting their own series.

While it is yet to be named, the show scheduled to launch in 2023 — after the original series concludes.

Plot details are currently being kept under wraps.

In a statement, The Walking Dead chief content officer Scott M. Gimple said that while the flagship series would be coming to an end, there were still plenty more stories to tell in The Walking Dead universe.

“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,” he said.

“We have a lot of thrilling story left to tell on TWD, and then, this end will be a beginning of more Walking 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.”

Gimple is also developing a scripted anthology series, Tales of the Walking Dead, which has been described as “an episodic anthology with individual episodes or arcs of episodes focused on new or existing characters, backstories or other stand-alone experiences”.

Those are on top of the spin-off series Fear the Walking Dead, which has been renewed for a sixth season, and The Walking Dead: World Beyond, which is set to premiere next month.
