The eleventh and final season of The Walking Dead is finally here. It’s been a long time coming but fans of the long-standing series can watch the last ever season on AMC (US) from 22 August or Disney+ (UK) from 23 August.
The season was confirmed towards the end of 2019 but the Covid pandemic caused delays in production pushing back the release.
The final season was originally pencilled in for an October 2020 release but for the first time in a decade, US broadcaster AMC, announced the delay.
There will be 24 episodes in this final season, two more than the season 10. I imagine this should be enough time to tell the story that needs to be told and to bring the whole series to a satisfying conclusion.
As someone who raged quit The Walking Dead after the disappointing season six finale, I am seriously tempted to return to the series. I really would like to know how the story ends and if that means binge-watching the previous four seasons then so be it.
I’m sure there will be more rage quitting as the writers do have a way of rubbing me up the wrong way with their not so suspenseful chain yanking but I’ve invested many hours in this show and would love to see it go out with a bang.
