All good things must come to an end, even with AMC’s The Walking Dead.
It was recently announced that the flagship series would conclude after its upcoming eleventh season, and while this will be the end for The Walking Dead, it definitely won’t be the end for the TWD universe as a whole.
Fear The Walking Dead and The Walking Dead: World Beyond are both set to release fresh content for a while yet, and two new spinoff series are in development as well. The first is an anthology show titled Tales Of The Walking Dead, which will shine a light on “individual stories set in the world of the dead,” while the second is a spinoff starring Norman Reedus’ Daryl Dixon and Melissa McBride’s Carol Peletier, and it’s through this project that The Walking Dead‘s story can live on.
Fan favorites Carol and Daryl have been regulars since season 1, so it’s no surprise that we’ll see more of them after the main series is finished. The two have developed a special bond throughout the course of the show as well, and their friendship has survived the test of an apocalypse. Speaking with Insider on the decision to greenlight the spinoff, chief creative officer Scott Gimple explained that:
“It (The Daryl/Carol spinoff) is going to continue to keep going with Daryl and Carol. It’s going to be a different show with a different tone, but the story of that corner of The Walking Dead, in some ways, it continues to go through them.”
Angela Kang, who serves as showrunner on the parent series, will also fill the same position on this upcoming spinoff. Apparently, she and Gimple have come up with a “super interesting” story for it, and it’ll air at some point in 2023. For now, though, you can get your fill of The Walking Dead by watching the season 10 finale on October 4th, followed in the coming weeks by new episodes of Fear The Walking Dead and The Walking Dead: World Beyond.
