We can’t say that the news today altogether shocks us, given that The Walking Dead is a series that has had a fantastic run over the years. It was at one point a cable TV sensation, drawing record ratings and creating stars out of Andrew Lincoln, Norman Reedus, and others. The numbers have fallen over the years, though the series does still have a devoted audience.
There is a plan for how things are going to go here. The season 10 finale-of-sorts will air next month, following by six bonus episodes in 2021. From there, there are 24 episodes in the final season, and they will be split up across two years.
In a statement, franchise guru Scott M. Gimple had the following to say:
“It’s been 10 years ‘gone bye;’ what lies ahead are two more to come and stories and stories to tell beyond that … 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. 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.”
The latter statement is a reference to a pair of upcoming spin-offs that will continue this world, including one revolving around Daryl and Carol.
