The Walking Dead is coming to an end, are you ready for it?


The Walking Dead will reach its final season and the trailer for season 11 is here. 

The cast and creators of the AMC show participated in a Q&A discussion about filming the last season, sharing behind-the-scenes anecdotes, information about the upcoming new episodes, and the first look for season 11.

The new footage shows the cast facing new challenges, tears, death, and destruction. Enemies also become allies as they prepare for the end of it all. The Walking Dead season 11 will premiere on August 22. However, it will be released a week early on August 15 on AMC+.

Regarding season 11, the cast members were asked if their characters are the same. Lauren Cohan was asked how her character is about being in the same place as Negan, a man who killed her husband. The show also teased new villains, the Reapers with showrunner Angela Kang describing them as, "incredibly brutal, organized warriors."

It was announced in September 2020 that TWD would officially wrap after season 11, which will consist of 24 episodes. Season 10 received an extended order last year, bringing the episode count for that season to 30 episodes

From comic books to TV Series

The Walking Dead television series is based on the comic book series of the same name by Robert Kirkman, Tony Moore, and Charlie Adlard. They were together forming the core of The Walking Dead franchise. The series is about survivors of a zombie apocalypse trying to stay alive under near-constant threat of attacks from zombies known as "walkers".

However, with the collapse of modern civilization, these survivors must confront other survivors who have formed groups and communities with their own sets of laws and morals, sometimes leading to open a hostile conflict between them.

The series does not attempt to go step-by-step with the comics and has leeway in the narrative. In particular, the series's writers, along with Kirkman, often "transfer" how a character has died in the comics to a different character in the series. For example, in the fourth season, where Hershel Greene is beheaded by the Governor in the standoff with Rick's group at the prison; in the comic, Tyreese is the one who suffers this fate.

In addition, the writers have included characters wholly novel to the series such as Daryl Dixon, which producer Gale Anne Hurd says helps to create a new dynamic for the series, and keeps the audience guessing from what had already been established in the comic series.

Another Walking Dead universe

Though The Walking Dead is coming to an end, there is still another Walking Dead universe to all the zombie fans. There is a spinoff led by Daryl Dixon (NormanReedus) and Carol Peletier (Melissa McBride) will launch in 2023, to be run by Walking Dead showrunner Angela Kang. 

AMC is also developing a potential anthology series, Tales of the Walking Dead, with Scott M. Gimple, the chief content officer of The Walking Dead universe. The project would focus "individual episodes or arcs of episodes on new or existing characters, backstories or other standalone experiences."  

The show has been one of the most beloved zombie series on the planet. The first season of the series was run back in 2010. It has been featured many beloved cast members throughout the last decade.
