All good (and dead) things must end.
The last eight episodes of the 11th and final season of The Walking Dead on AMC kick off this weekend, and the cast has recorded its goodbyes and thank-yous to the fan base in a special video. Check out the tribute on this page.
In The Walking Dead: Meet the Generation Dead video, cast members Norman Reedus, Melissa McBride, Lauren Cohan, Khary Payton, Paola Lazaro, Michael James Shaw and Jeffrey Dean Morgan express their appreciation to the show’s loyal fans.
Daryl Dixon actor Reedus said it was “a real honor playing this part for 11 seasons. Thank you for being with us on this crazy ride.” McBride–the only other cast member with the series from the beginning–said, “I have to remember this is not a goodbye. It is a heartfelt thank you.”
