Fans of The Walking Dead were very shocked by news recently revealed.
The series will come to an end! The closure will take place in the eleventh season, which had already been announced.
The eleventh season will be released in 2022, with the last episode ever due to be shown later this year.
Fans must be wondering: after all, has The Walking Dead been canceled? It’s because?
The “cancellation” of The Walking Dead is more like a closure that was in the plans a long time ago.
Truth be told, many fans left the main series a long time ago. With the drop in audience, the main series is no longer a priority.
Many fans, for example, were much more anxious for the Rick Grimes (Andrew Lincoln) film trilogy than for new seasons of The Walking Dead.
The producers seem to have understood this. Realizing that the main series had been “dying” each year, they apparently decided to discard it to focus on stories that might get more attention from fans.
A series derived from Carol (Melissa McBride) and Daryl (Norman Reedus) is in development, scheduled for release in 2023, and fans will also have an anthological series called Tales of the Walking Dead, which may even count on the return of characters that have already been killed.
In addition, Rick’s film trilogy remains a priority. The distribution will be on account of Universal Pictures, same studio of Fast and Furious and Jurassic World.
Therefore, the “cancellation” of The Walking Dead is more like a change of plans, which seeks to revitalize the franchise, ending an era and beginning another. This shared universe will remain more alive than ever.
In Brazil, The Walking Dead will return with its tenth season in October.
