Following the final episode of The Walking Dead’s extended 10th season, AMC has announced when fans can expect the final journey to take place.
The 11th and final season of the series will premiere August 22. (Which means fans don’t have too long to wait.) The news dropped during a special teaser that aired with the season 10 finale.
“Coming off of the six additional episodes for Season 10, which focused on smaller, character-driven stories, we’re excited to kick off Season 11 bigger than ever,” said Angela Kang, showrunner and executive producer. “The stakes will be high – we’ll see more zombies, tons of action, intriguing new stories, never-before-seen locations and our groups together in one community for the first time, trying to rebuild what the Whisperers took from them.”
The final season of The Walking Dead will contain a massive 24 episodes. The season will roll out in installments. So, you can expect eight weeks of episodes starting August 22, followed by a break.
“The final chapter of The Walking Dead begins with eight action-packed episodes that will feature the massive scope and scale fans have come to expect from TWD Universe, and I’m thrilled to share that fans won’t have to wait long for these incredible new episodes to debut this summer,” said Scott M. Gimple, CCO of TWD Universe.
In addition to the final season of its flagship show, TWD franchise previously announced plans for several spinoffs. So even though this particular encounter with the dead will draw to a close, fans can get their fix elsewhere in-universe.
