Production on the 11th and final season of The Walking Dead has officially begun. The official Walking Dead Twitter account confirmed the news with a photo of an extremely charred Alexandria including the iconic windmill landmark which was likely a remnant from The Whisperer War. Production on the season was supposed to begin in the spring of last year but due to Covid-19 causing an industry-wide shutdown, it was put on pause.
The final season will feature 24 episodes, aiming to wrap up sometime next year. At this time there is no premiere date set. You don’t have to wait for a new season to catch new episodes, though, because in just a few short weeks on February 28 AMC will begin airing 10C, which consists of six bonus episodes that will follow some of the most beloved TWD characters on individual journeys.
Check out the first set photo of season 11 below.
