And for fans dreading The Walking Dead’s ending, you’re in luck – various cast members teased potential spin-offs during the show’s New York Comic Con panel, with Daryl, Carol, and even Maggie reportedly starring their own shows should.
Read on for more information on the season 11 release date, storylines, and alleged spin-offs.
When will the Walking Dead season 11 be released?
It might take a while to have exact details on the release date for Season 11, but the season is expected to begin in late 2021 and the second half to air in 2022.
The season will be epic long, with up to 24 episodes split into two separate series, and we’ll let you know as soon as we get any news on the official release dates.
Before that, though, fans can look forward to some additional Season 10 episodes – six bonus episodes were announced in July. Showrunner Angela Kang recently shared RadioTimes.com and other press that the episodes “would really delve into some of these characters that we have. In some of them it’s a kind of focused, almost anthology-like storytelling. ”
Is the 11th season of the Walking Dead the last season?
Yes, unfortunately, the main Walking Dead story ends with Season 11 – but there’s a lot more to the franchise in general.
When it was announced that season 11 would be the last, two more spin-off shows were announced, joining the pre-existing Fear the Walking Dead and the upcoming The Walking Dead: World Beyond, as well as a number of Rick Grimes spin- off films are also in preparation.
Scott Gimple, Chief Content Officer of the Walking Dead franchise, said, “It’s been 10 years. What lies ahead of us are two more and stories and stories to be told beyond.
“What is clear is that this show is about the life made by a passionate cast, a team of writers / producers, producers and crew to bring the vision of Robert Kirkman to life in his brilliant comic – and by the best supports fans in the world.
“We still have a lot of exciting stories to tell on TWD, and then this ending will be the beginning of more Walking Dead – brand new stories and characters, familiar faces and places, new voices and new mythologies. This will be a grand finale that will lead to new premieres. Evolution is just around the corner. The walking dead live. ”
There was also recently news of a possible spin-off from Daryl (Norman Reedus) and Carol (Melissa McBridge) that wouldn’t air until 2023, the actors teased the New York Comic Con Metaverse panel.
“I think it’s great that people are excited and excited about something,” said actress Melissa McBride. “Daryl and Carol have a lot of fans out there, [who] had even talked about how fun it would be if they got a spin-off. I’m excited!”
“All of these characters have reached the point where they can get along with each other in our small group and sometimes not anymore,” added Reedus. “If you take these two characters and take them out on the streets and they see who’s been left out in the world, how are you … it’s like getting out of jail. You have to somehow adapt to people again. ”
Meanwhile, Lauren Cohan, who plays Maggie on the show, told Entertainment Weekly that there is “murmur” of a potential series focused on her character.
“I know Maggie will mumble an extended story when the official mothership is ready. And just like you and I talked about whatever it was a year or two ago, that’s cool, ”she said.

The Walking Dead Staffel 11 Spoiler
With 24 episodes ahead of us, it seems likely that the final season won’t be exactly focused on action and drama.
At this stage of the process, details of the plot are pretty hard to come by, but it’s likely that the season will focus on the introduction of the Commonwealth and the aftermath of the Whispering War.
And it’s unlikely that fans will find too many clues as to what might happen when they look at the comic’s source material – the TV show is already quite a long way from the plot of the comics.
However, showrunner Angela Kang teased at the recent The Walking Dead panel at New York Comic-Con that COVID restrictions would have to “think outside the box” for producers.
“There won’t be anything like that because we can’t have 300 zombie extras and people [with] Faces smacked up, mouths all over the place, ”she said. “But what was really cool is that we had to think outside the box. For example, how to make things feel very scary, cool, and emotional while knowing a little better how many people are in a scene. ”
“Are there ways to do this if people aren’t constantly looking each other in the face? Hopefully when the audience sees it they won’t really feel what we are doing. “
She added that in the upcoming episodes they’ll be diving “really deep into these really cool character stories” but won’t be giving any clues as to what characters they might be.
“We definitely have a story that many comic book fans have been waiting for and I love this script. You know, we’re going to tease things a different way. There are limitations, but I think it was a really cool creative challenge at the same time. ”
When season 11 hits, we’re sure to see friction between Maggie (Lauren Cohan), who returned to the show for the season 10 finale, and Negan (Jeffrey Dean Morgan), who killed Maggie’s husband, Glenn, in season 7.
Speaking to Entertainment Weekly, Cohan said, “I was not familiar with these saving graces from Negans or his great relationship with children or his affinity for animals. I do not know anything about that. And even if I did … So it’s going to be a lot. ”
She added, “It will definitely be a lot when she comes back. I’m so jonesing to get into on this. It’s really bloody great. And I couldn’t do it with anyone more fun than Jeffrey [Dean Morgan]. It’s just that we’re really overwhelmed. It is great.”
