The Walking Dead is actually ending...but wait, more spin-offs.

https://www.comingsoon.net/tv/news/1147973-the-walking-dead-to-end-with-expanded-season-11-daryl-carol-spinoff-to-follow

While I have enjoyed S9 and S10, I'm not sure what to think of this news. Additional shows and of course the supposed Rick movies... is there an audience for all of this?!  Thoughts??

  • WHY IS SCOTT GIMPLE STILL INVOLVED

  • Can't wait for the Daryl and Carol show "Bike and Bake"

    Overall it seems a smart move:
    1) Spin off a show with the two most popular remaining characters allowing them to continue some continuity for returning characters, story arcs, etc.

    2) Have an anthology show to allow for different settings, characters, and much more freedom in getting rid of characters/groups than they had on the old shows, almost like it was set in a ZA and lots of people die.

  • AMC is going to continue their cash cow franchise until it literally costs more than it makes. The only baffling decision here is why Scott Gimple hasn’t been fired for almost running two TWD series into the ground. He must have some serious dirt on AMC Execs or something.

    Scott’s got the pee tapes.

  • I'm optimistic about the future of the "deadverse"

    I mean, yeah there have been some really bad seasons of TWD and FTWD, but some really good stuff as well. The bones of the world are pretty solid, and there's a whole lot of room for interesting characters, situations and drama.

    I'm just glad that this "zombie" narrative isn't dipping into the "there are mutant zombies with special powers" sorta stuff that most narratives get into.

    They are just dead and shambling corpses that don't ever seem to really die unless they get a hatchet to the skull.

    This is enough for some really great drama/horror, and we don't need them sneaking around and spitting acid on everyone <span>:smile:</span>

  • Given "late 2022" and thus after April, I guess I didn't nail it, but given that I made the call in April of 2018 I still think I should get a few internet points for my goofy prediction.

  • With these extended seasons and spin-offs, what is everyone's thoughts about the potential movies? I mean, the Daryl and Carol roadshow could be what potentially kicks off the movies. But assuming that is not the case, would you rather just have Rick return to the series or proceed with the movies according to plan?

    I'd rather have Rick stick to the movies.  The show's been fine without him, Andrew Lincoln presumably left the show for valid reasons, and if the movies are sufficiently disappointing perhaps Gimple will move on from AMC/TWD.
