Good morning,  

AMC has announced that The Walking Dead, one of its most successful shows, will conclude with season 11 in 2022.  

The Walking Dead first aired in 2010 and was based on the comic series by Robert Kirkman. Since its airing, it has developed a devoted fan base, and numerous other spin-offs from the comics have also been released, including a popular choice-based video game series.  

The show has struggled a bit in 2020, with ratings lower than usual and post-production needing to be stopped due to COVID-19 complications. The current season, its tenth, is scheduled to conclude Oct. 4 after the final episode was delayed due to the coronavirus.  

The show’s conclusion is not the end of the series, however. The prequel show, Fear the Walking Dead, is still ongoing and has a sixth season scheduled to air in October. The Walking Dead: World Beyond is a new show also scheduled to air in October. Not only that, but a spin-off show featuring two characters (Daryl and Carol) has been announced by AMC and will air in 2023.
