The American post-apocalyptic horror television series is based on Tony Moore’s, Charlie Adlard’s, and Robert Kirkman’s comic book series. AMC made a revelation regarding the last season for The Walking Dead. According to AMC, Season 12 will be the last ever season of the series. This revelation happened after Robert Kirkman, the show’s creator, decided to end the comic books recently. This decision has caused many people to believe that the show is also coming to a close.
This incredible series has also seen some big names such as Andrew Lincoln and Danai Gurira leave the show in the past few years. Currently, The Walking Dead has two spin-offs; Fear the Walking Dead and the upcoming show The Walking Dead: World Beyond. Reportedly, the series has got only two more seasons left but let’s face it; the series is past its heyday for a good few years now. Even in the face of ever-decreasing ratings, the AMC has always supported the post-apocalyptic drama. While it appears theirs is no need to worry about the future of the series just yet, it seems the end is definitely in sight.
One interesting fact is that producer David Alpert revealed back in 2014 that there were plans up until season 12, so possibly the concept of the show coming to an end at that point may have been underway for quite a while. Like the last season, the twelfth installment fits with the number of comics left to adapt. Still, in season 10, The Walking Dead has got three more episodes left of the season. The finale was pushed indefinitely because of the current pandemic.
What Happens To The Spin Offs Of The Walking Dead?
AMC announced the cancellation of the parent series only. This announcement is to say the current on-going spin-off Fear the Walking Dead is still up for viewership. Additionally, a second spin-off, The Walking Dead: World Beyond, is upcoming. The show was set to debut the same night as the flagship series’ finale but will now air later in the year on a yet to be determined date. Indeed, the fans have something to look forward to after the end of their favorite series.
The Walking Dead Season 12 Release Date : When can we Expect it?
The filming of season 11 has not kicked off yet. Similarly, the production of the twelfth season has not picked up. Due to the coronavirus pandemic status, most television and movie productions have come to a halt. The season 10 finale should have already aired in the month of Halloween, but this time this was not the case. Suffice to say, the prediction regarding the release date of the final installment of the series is hard to arrive at in the present conditions.
There is not much to tell. Meanwhile, viewers can watch the trailers of the spin-offs of the series. This link features The Walking Dead: World Beyond trailer:
