The Walking Dead showrunner and writer Scott Gimple has opened up about the new version of the legendary series and shaded lights on a spin-off of some characters.
The Walking Dead will conclude in late 2022 after an expanded season 11 that will feature 24 episodes, including the COVID-delayed October 4 season 10 finale, as well as six seasons 10 bonus episodes that will release in early 2021. This means that 31 episodes will air before the series ends.
But we will see many more walking dead to come. The third script of the series, The Walking Dead: World Beyond, will air on October 4. At the same time, the cable channel hints that there will be two new series.
At the start of season 10, Daryl Dixon and Carol Peletier joke about Daryl’s motorcycle heading out into the sunset, but they set out for a brand new series. AMC said that a TWD spin-off based on Norman Reedus’s Daryl and Melissa McBride’s Carol would be aired. This spin-off will be released in 2023. This great news was confirmed by content manager Scott Gimple.
Here’s what Scott Gimple said about the future TWD projects:
“It’s been ten years gone by; what lies ahead are two more to come and stories and stories to tell beyond that. What’s clear is that this show has been about the living, made by a passionate cast, the team of writer/producers, producers, and crew, bringing to life the vision put forth by Robert Kirkman in his brilliant comic — and supported by the best fans in the world.
We have a lot of thrilling stories left to tell on TWD, and then, this end 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 upon us. The Walking Dead lives.”
