The Walking Dead could have more spinoffs on the way.
The Walking Dead might be coming to an end, but the TWD world is not bidding farewell anytime soon.
The Chief Content Officer Scott M. Gimple claimed the universe is not dying yet. The series that started off as a zombie apocalypse, like never seen before, is scheduled to end in 2022.
It will be followed by a sequel show starring Norman Reedus (Daryl Dixon) and Melissa McBride (Carol Peletier), and an anthology series Tales of the Walking Dead. That’s not all. There’s a lot more to come as well.

During the Skybound Entertainment 10th Anniversary Panel at New York Comic Con, Gimple acknowledged it’s a bit depressing that the iconic series is coming to an end, but it’s great for those working on the project that they’ve got a lot to look forward to.
I know it was recently announced that the Walking Dead show is ending with Season 11, and we’re all very upset about that. It’s a real bummer to see that wrapped up. But it’s something that we’ve been building to, so we’re really excited internally.
He also went on to reveal all the other developments that are going to happen, even as TWD is coming to a close. He alluded there are further spinoffs on the way that have not been revealed at this point.
We’ve got this Carol and Daryl show that was just announced, and there’s all kinds of other things like Fear the Walking Dead and The Walking Dead: World Beyond, and some things that haven’t been announced that will be coming out. So The Walking Dead is not going anywhere anytime soon.
Gimple has already informed us there will be multiple limited series in the future of the franchise. Moreover, World Beyond is scheduled to run for just two seasons; there may be several spinoffs that last for merely a single season, for instance, or however long the story needs to be told.
This ensures that numerous spinoffs will be produced, so they don’t have to be on-going projects like Fear the Walking Dead. More of these mini-series are likely to be included in the ventures Gimple is hinting at.
Meanwhile, there are still 30 episodes of The Walking Dead left. Production is still ongoing on the six bonus installments expected at the beginning of 2021, before filming on the 24-part eleventh and final season will begin at the end of 2021 and finish in 2022. In the meantime, Fear and World Beyond airs on AMC every Sunday.
