The Walking Dead has been airing on AMC since Halloween night, 2010. Viewers tuned in to the new “zombie series,” curious as to what it would be about. Fans of the comics were eager to see the on-screen translation, and people new to the fandom had no idea what to expect.
The series has gone on to spawn a fandom unlike any other and has aired three spinoff series, with three more in the works. TWD Family is more than just a group; it is a family. And that family consists of fans, cast, crew, artists, and anyone who enjoys this series and all it has created.
Here we are, twelve years later, and the series is quickly approaching its end. After 11 seasons and what will total up to 177 episodes, The Walking Dead will air its final episode on November 20, 2022.
The Walking Dead final episode
The last episode of The Walking Dead series is the 24th episode of season 11, titled “Rest in Peace.” This is a nod to the final comic volume of the same title, which consists of issues 187-193.
Showrunners have said that the final episodes aren’t going to set up any of the spinoffs but will bring this storyline to a close. So far, there have been several loose ends acknowledged, and several characters who have been lost have been remembered.
Talking Dead has announced that there will be a huge fan event for the last episode held on finale night in Los Angeles. More details are yet to come, but it has been stated that cast members, new and old, will be present.
I think Khary Payton, who plays Ezekiel, said it best when he said we need to treat the end like a celebration, that you don’t get this far and not run across the finish line, “If happiness can be covered in blood, this is the place. Let’s do it.”
