Turn out the lights…the party’s over.
Falling into the category of “all good things must end,” AMC’s zombie phenomenon The Walking Dead this week wrapped production on its 11th and final season. Check out the Instagram post by showrunner Angela Kang–courtesy of screenrant.com–on this page.
In the post, Kang–along with Lauren Cohan, who plays Maggie Greene on the show–thanked everyone who “sent well wishes to those of us who work on the show today. It’s been an amazing ride.”
The show’s final season has been broken up into three eight-episode segments, with Part II debuting Feb. 20 and wrapping up April 10. The final eight episodes will hit AMC later this year.
Scott M. Gimple, chief content officer of TWD universe, said this last season is a “grand finale that will lead to new premieres. Evolution is upon us. The Walking Dead lives.”
And the reason the concept will live on is that two spinoff series are already in the works. An untitled Daryl/Carol series (starring Norman Reedus and Melissa McBride) and Isle of the Dead (with Cohan and Jeffrey Dean Morgan’s Negan trying to survive in a post-apocalyptic Manhattan) are expected to debut sometime next year.
