THE WALKING DEAD TV Series Will End in 2022; Carol & Daryl Spinoff Will Follow
Though many will claim the long-running TV series is long past its prime, AMC’s The Walking Dead will officially shamble to it’s comclusion in 2022. For those already lamenting the loss of fan-favorite characters: Take solace in the fact that there’s a spinoff series featuring Carol and Daryl (played by Melissa McBride and Norman Reedus respectively).
“The Walking Dead will end with an expanded two-year eleventh season that will span 24 episodes,” Bloody Disgusting reports.
“As The Walking Dead universe continues to expand, the original series will be followed by a greenlit spin-off focused on the popular Daryl Dixon (Norman Reedus) and Carol Peletier (Melissa McBride) characters, which will premiere in 2023 and be run by current The Walking Dead showrunner Angela Kang, who co-created the series with Scott M. Gimple, chief content officer of The Walking Dead Universe. AMC is also working with Gimple to develop a new Tales of the Walking Dead series, an episodic anthology with individual episodes or arcs of episodes focused on new or existing characters, backstories or other stand-alone experiences. The company, working closely with Gimple, is also developing a number of other new and innovative projects grounded in The Walking Dead universe.”
The Walking Dead will return to AMC for Season 10 on October 4th.
