The Walking Dead has been on the air for a decade now. Now the show is going to start in the 11th season. The final episode of season 10 released yesterday. The finale was delayed due to the coronavirus pandemic. However, the finale episode was just another beginning for the show. It is announced that the show is finally going to end after season 11 of the show.
But, it is not goodbye. The show is not done yet. However, the original show might end with season 11. Season 11 is going to be 24 episodes a long season. Half of it will be released in 2021 and the other half of the show will be released in 2022. However, it is good to know that the show is not ending instantly. The show has become a brand itself. From video games to merch and spin-off shows, The Walking Dead universe is not dead yet.
The Walking Dead: New show for Daryl and Carol
Another good news for The Walking Dead fans is that there is going to be a new show which is going to be based on Daryl Dixon and Carol. However, we will see the bad-ass friends in a completely new show. However, there is no news yet how they will fit the old characters in the new show. We are not aware yet which old characters will be coming back in the new show.
Daryl Dixon is played by Norman Reedus who has become a fan favorite. He has been playing the role for a decade now and has gotten attached to the character. Melissa McBride plays the character, Carol, on the show. Both of the characters are strong and fan favorite. It is a big relief that they will be returning to their new show.
Angela Kang nee writer for the show said this about the future of both of the characters;
It’s bittersweet to bring [the flagship series] to an end,” she said in a statement, “but I could not be more excited to be working with Scott Gimple and AMC to develop a new series for Daryl and Carol. Working with Norman Reedus and Melissa McBride has been a highlight of my career, and I’m thrilled that we get to keep telling stories together.”
There is no news about the plot of the show. It is tough to guess what can happen in the upcoming series. However, it is certain that newer characters will be introduced as well.
Negan will be in the spin-off
Negan has become a fan-favorite character. It is hard to imagine The Walking Dead Universe without Negan. It is difficult to hate Negan. Now that Daryl and all the members are fine with Negan, he might be the part of the spin-off show. However, it will be revealed after the season finale of season 11. Negan has become a crucial part of the walking dead TV series universe. Jeffrey Dean Morgan played the role of dedication and the role changed his career. However, the writers and producers are fond of the character. So, we are definitely going to see him in the spin-off shows if he survives the season 11 finale.
