The end is near for “The Walking Dead.” The show is ending in 2022 with a much larger, expanded, 11th season. As AMC did with their other legendary shows, “Mad Men” and “Breaking Bad,” the final season will run over two years with a total of 24 episodes.
While the original zombie apocalypse series is ending, you’ll be glad to know that a spin-off is already in the works. The currently untitled show will feature fan-favorites Norman Reedus and Melissa McBride in their roles as Daryl Dixon and Carol Peletier. It’s set to premiere in 2023.
BREAKING: #TheWalkingDead will conclude in 2022 with an extended 24-episode 11th and final season. In 2023, Angela Kang will return to helm a fourth #TWD series starring Norman Reedus and Melissa McBride. Details: https://t.co/256kz1pAzn pic.twitter.com/GLbd3zG6UF

Plot details are being kept under wraps, but the show is co-created by The Walking Dead showrunner Angela Kang. She’s also developing an anthology series titled Tales Of The Walking Dead, featuring one-off episodes built around new and existing characters within The Walking Dead universe. AMC also has the companion series Fear The Walking Dead entering its sixth season, and a new series The Walking Dead: World Beyond, starting next month. A series of feature films are also in the works with original series stars Andrew Lincoln.
And as previously announced, the COVID-delayed season 10 finale is airing as a special episode on October 4th, with 10 additional episodes to air in 2021 for the current cycle.
