AMC’s The Walking Dead made its way onto screens back in 2011 and since then has turned into one of the most compelling shows on television when it comes to a story involving zombies. Fans can’t wait to see what’s next and they’re hoping for big things following a huge slump caused by the pandemic. That caused the famous series to produce six stripped-down episodes last season with huge restrictions.
The show stars Andrew Lincoln as Rick Grimes and Jeffrey Dean Morgan as Negan, one of the most intimidating and brutal characters ever seen in a TV series. The show has so far run for 10 seasons and an 11th and final season will be airing this week.
While speaking to The Hollywood Reporter, showrunner Angela Kang talked about the final season of the show and promised that the pandemic will not hinder the epic nature of the show. Kanga also added that the spinoff based on the main show will still retain the tension and danger even if fan-favorite characters Carol and Daryl survive the end of the show.
”It’s going to feel like classic ‘Walking Dead,’ hopefully. Every moment feels like it’s infused with just a real urgency. But I do feel that we also have ways of creating that urgency without it always been about whose life is on the line. We’re just playing with different kinds of stakes this year. So there is zombie danger, there’s always the possibility of people still getting injured by zombies. Even with Carol or Daryl, we know they’re moving on to something, there are high, emotional stakes. There’s a lot of questions about what’s the right thing to do and who are the right people to work with and like what can you stand?
There’s still tons of tension and danger” to take place. They’re fighting for their souls and for what is the right way forward.”
The final season of the show will start airing on August 15th and will have 24 episodes, ending in 2022. We will have to wait and see how the final season will turn out to be.
