The once-upon-a-time cultural phenomenon will meet its end soon. 

AMC Studios has announced that after a long 12 years, The Walking Dead will end with an 11-season run. The show’s final episode will air in late 2022, after a supersized 24-episode final season that will run throughout 2021 and 2022. 

Watch the announcement below:

The Walking Dead’s 10th season is currently on hiatus, as its season finale couldn’t be completed due to the ongoing pandemic. The show will air its Season 10 finale on October 4, 2020 - but AMC has ordered six more episodes to extend the season in 2021. A new spin-off series titled The Walking Dead: World Beyond will fill the gap between new episodes of the show in October. 

AMC clearly isn’t done with the show, however. In addition to Fear the Walking Dead (which will continue later this year), the show will receive a third spin-off series focusing on fan favourite characters Daryl Dixon (Norman Reedus) and Carol Peletier (Melissa McBride). The series will premiere in 2023. A fourth spin-off titled Tales of the Walking Dead is also in development under showrunner Scott M. Gimple. This will be an anthology series much like Black Mirror, telling stand-alone stories in the same universe. 

So… that’s five series set in The Walking Dead’s universe currently in development at AMC Studios. Three feature films starring Andrew Lincoln as former leading man Rick Grimes are also in development, although AMC hasn’t offered updates on that trilogy in quite some time. 

It looks like The Walking Dead still has a long future ahead of it.
