All wonderful things must come to an end, or else they would shamble on like a zombie, lacking the spark that gave them life in the first place. The Walking Dead is no different. Sure, Daryl and Carol are breaking away from the main cast to star in their own show, but The Walking Dead as we know it is coming to an end.
The Walking Dead’s 11th and last season are almost ready to pounce, according to AMC’s teaser trailer from the season 10 finale, “Here’s Negan.” Because the movie has a mysterious narrator questioning a figure with a questionnaire (e.g., what are you doing here, have you been vaccinated for the measles, etc.), it does an excellent job of asking questions, but it leaves viewers with more questions than answers.
The Walking Dead Season 11 – Official Trailer
Aside from surviving the zombie apocalypse, these include, but are not limited to, people who will feature in the season and the overall plot. Here’s all we know so far about Season 11 of The Walking Dead.
When does Season 11 of The Walking Dead premiere?
Despite the fact that the season 11 teaser raises more questions than it answers, it does present a single answer to the most pressing audience concerns: The final season of the show will premiere on August 22, a month before the start of autumn. However, because The Walking Dead airs on AMC, it won’t be available for binge-watching right away.
Not only will viewers have to wait a week between episodes, but the season will also be broken up into eight eight-episode portions (via Deadline). Season 11 will have a total of 24 episodes, the most of any season, which is appropriate, but the staggered release schedule will come at a cost. Season 11 will begin in 2021 and end in 2022, despite the fact that it will premiere in 2021.
That’s great news for fans who don’t want The Walking Dead to end, but it’s horrible news for fans who want answers to their burning questions. Hopefully, there won’t be a true zombie apocalypse in the middle of the season finale.
In Season 11 of The Walking Dead, who will play the main characters?
You could certainly operate a profitable betting pool on who dies and when during a zombie apocalypse due to the high turnover rate of survivors. We’re more worried about who will and won’t show up for the last season, even if it’s just to be eaten by zombies than we are about actor expiration dates.
Season 11 will very certainly feature the key characters that survived season 10 (surprising, we know). Daryl Dixon (Norman Reedus), Ezekiel (Khary Payton), Carol Peletier (Melissa McBride), Negan (Jeffrey Dean Morgan), and Rosita Espinosa are among the characters mentioned (Christian Serratos).
Season 11 isn’t entirely made up of jaded veterans. A couple of new characters will also be introduced to the audience. Michael James Shaw (Corvus Glaive in Avengers: Infinity War and Endgame, Papa Midnite in Constantine) confirmed on Instagram that he has been cast as Mercer, the Commonwealth Army’s commander.
The Walking Dead season 11 has a plot.
Season 11 will most likely tie up loose ends (assuming the developers don’t intend to save answers for spin-offs) because it is The Walking Dead’s final season. The last season will have plenty of content, with 24 planned episodes.
Season 11 of The Walking Dead will be “larger than ever,” according to showrunner Angela Kang, per Deadline. “The stakes will be high,” she continued, “we’ll witness more zombies, loads of action, exciting new storylines, never-before-seen locales, and our factions coming together for the first time, trying to rebuild what the Whisperers took from them.”
That’s an intriguing hook: all of the key players working together to defeat the Whisperers, but there’s more to it than that. The community will play an important role in the season since Michael James Shaw will play Commonwealth military leader Mercer. When you add in other dangling narrative lines like Maggie’s blood feud with Negan and the new hostile organization known as The Reapers, audiences have a lot to look forward to.
