The Walking Dead flagship series will be ending in 2022. Part one of three of season 11 has already aired with the second coming in February 2022. By the fall of 2022, The Walking Dead series will be completed. But, what is coming next?
The Walking Dead’s eleventh season has a lot to live up to, as fans expect much from this season. There are many open-ended storylines to wrap up. Carol and Daryl will have to set off on their own, and fans hope to see or hear something about Rick Grimes before the end of the series.
What seems like forever ago, we were promised three Walking Dead movies. Andrew Lincoln will once again grace our screens as Rick Grimes. These movies are in the process of being written and perhaps once the series completes filming in March 2022, they will be able to start filming the movies.
What spin-off series are in the work for TWDU?
Fear the Walking Dead
The first spin-off series is going strong in its seventh season and will likely be renewed for an eighth. Things have drastically changed in the series since the nuclear bomb explosion. This series is slowly introducing the CRM, which is a heavy focus on The Walking Dead: World Beyond.
There is a search from something/someone called PADRE on this series, and fans have speculated that it may have something to do with the CRM. The midseason finale for this series is titled “Padre,” so it seems we will learn something by that point.
The Walking Dead: World Beyond
The second spin-off series was always slated to be a limited series consisting of two seasons. On December 5, this series will air its final episode. Fans had hoped to see Rick in this series, but that doesn’t seem like it will happen.
We did see a crossover from TWD to this series in Jadis, who is now Warrant Officer Stokes of the CRM. She mentioned something valuable that she traded with the CR to gain access to the community. That something of value we all know is Rick Grimes. That is all we have heard about Rick, and sadly I think that is all that we will learn.
We have learned much about the CR and CRM from this series, which will lead into the movies.
Daryl and Carol spin-off
Fans of Daryl and Carol were delighted to hear the news that these two characters would be heading off in their story. We know that Angela Kang will be the showrunner for this series and that it won’t look like the flagship series.
Tales of the Walking Dead
Tales of the Walking Dead is one that creators could do so much with. It will be an anthology series that will feature any number of stories. We could see backstories, future stories; the sky is pretty much the limit with this one. I hope they really dig in and give fans some amazing episodes with this one.
This series is set to release in the summer of 2022.
Dead in the Water
Another spin-off, Dead in the Water, is set to be a digital project that would take place on a submarine. This series would be linked to the sixth season of Fear the Walking Dead, where we were introduced to the USS Pennsylvania.
The synopsis was released as: “tells the story of a submarine crew fighting for survival, cut off from the surface world just as the apocalypse hits, becoming a nuclear-fueled walker-filled death trap with no way out.”
There has been no recent info on this series.
Run the Dish
About eight months ago, it was reported that a cooking show was in development by AMC. This series would combine The Walking Dead and First We Feast and feature apocalypse-themed food. It sounded like a fun concept, but we’ve heard nothing else about this one. So, time will tell.
It is exciting to think that the TWDU will carry on even after The Walking Dead ends. The hope is that we see the new spin-offs and possibly more in the future.
