The Walking Dead renewed for season 11
The announcement came at New York Comic Con.
Long-running zombie drama The Walking Dead has been renewed for an eleventh season.
Current showrunner Angela Kang, who replaced Scott Gimple from series nine onwards, confirmed the news during the show’s panel at New York Comic Con.
She didn’t offer any clues as to its plot or how closely it would continue to follow Robert Kirkman and Tony Moore’s award-winning comic book of the same name.
The casting of as Paola Lazaro as fan-favourite character Princess however suggests that it could be heading toward adapting the Commonwealth storyline, one of the comic’s last significant arcs.
This sees the residents of the Hilltop discover a sprawling but flourishing metropolis of over 50,000 survivors strong which is suffering under a rigid class system.
A second surprise came when actress Lauren Cohan appeared onstage to announce she’ll be returning as fan-favourite Maggie for this upcoming season.
Another popular character Michonne (Danai Gurira) is set to exit the show in season 10 but it’s likely that she could appear in one of the three upcoming Walking Dead films.
Along with these films, a third spinoff series is currently in development which will revolve around two young female protagonists who’ve grown-up in this post-apocalyptic world.
Season 10 of The Walking Dead, which began airing here in the UK on 7th October, follows the group as they continue to face-off against the ruthless Whisperers and their psychotic leader Alpha (Samantha Morton).
You can stream new episodes weekly on NOW TV.
