It’s finally here…the beginning of the end.
The 11th and final season of AMC’s acclaimed The Walking Dead series looms on the horizon and–per comicbook.com–a full trailer that previews the zombie climax is now available. Check out the sneak peek on this page.
This final season will start with a bang–a two-part premiere on AMC Aug. 22–and will continue with an extended 24-episode stretch that will wrap up in late 2022. The series reportedly will be broken down into three eight-episode blocks.
The Walking Dead Final Season: Part One will start with Acheron (Parts I and II), written by showrunner Angela Kang and producer Jim Barnes and directed by Kevin Dowling. This special two-parter will find Daryl (Norman Reedus) and Maggie (Lauren Cohan) teaming up with Negan (Jeffrey Dean Morgan) on a mission to save Alexandria.
Kang said “the stakes will be high” in this final season. “We’ll see more zombies, tons of action, intriguing new stories, never-before-seen locations and our groups together in one community for the first time–trying to rebuild what the Whisperers took from them,” she added.
Chief content officer Scott Gimple said the first eight episodes this year will feature “the massive scope and scale fans have come to expect from TWD Universe.” Debut dates for the next two eight-episode chapters have not yet been announced.
In the final season, according to the synopsis, the survivors who live in Alexandria “struggle to refortify it and feed the increasing number of residents. Their situation is dire as tensions heat up over past events, and self-preservation rises to the surface. They must find the strength to safeguard the lives of their children–even if it means losing their own.”
