“After completing the six additional episodes of season 10, which focused on smaller stories, we are excited to begin season 11″Says Angela Kang, showrunner and executive producer of The Walking Dead. “The stakes will be high – we’ll see more zombies, tons of action, intriguing new stories, never-before-seen locations, and our groups together in one community for the first time, trying to rebuild what the Whisperers took from them..”
The final season of The Walking Dead will conclude in 2022, but that doesn’t mean we’re putting its zombie-filled universe aside in the short term, as AMC has already given the green light to a spinoff series centered on Daryl Dixon and Carol Peletier that will premiere in 2023.
