Executive producers Greg Nicotero and Angela Kang rushed to Instagram to declare that production on the final episodes of The Walking Dead‘s eleventh and final season has officially come to an end after almost a year of shooting in Atlanta. The series’ last eight episodes are scheduled to premiere later this year.
The popular horror thriller is presently in the second half of its last season, with the mid-season finale episode due to air on AMC+ and AMC one week later.
The Walking Dead is a ten-year-old story about a man who goes in search of his missing family. When that family grew, communities started to emerge. They fought and won, thrived, and gave birth to a new generation. Many more tales of the human condition await.
Season 11 will have 24 episodes divided into three eight-episode portions, the last two of which will premiere in 2022. Margot Bingham returns as Stephanie, Laila Robins as Pamela Milton, Michael James Shaw as Mercer, and Josh Hamilton as Lance Hornsby.
The Walking Dead currently features the likes of Norman Reedus, Lauren Cohan, Melissa McBride, Josh McDermitt, Seth Gilliam, Cailey Fleming, Ross Marquand, Christian Serratos, Khary Payton, and Jeffrey Dean Morgan. Stars Nadia Hilker, Cooper Andrews, Lauren Ridloff, Eleanor Matsuura, Callan McAuliffe, and Cassady McClincy are also on board.
Adapted from Robert Kirkman, Tony Moore, and Charlie Adlard’s self-titled comic series, the series is executive produced by Scott M. Gimple, David Alpert, Joseph Incaprera, Gale Anne Hurd, Kirkman, Denise Huth, Greg Nicotero, and Angela Kang, who will make a comeback as the showrunner for the final installment.
