Twelve years after the start of “The Walking DeadThe series finale is now imminent. Season 11C of the popular zombie series will start on October 3, 2022 Disney+. In the last eight episodes there is a lot to work through that was built up in the previous seasons. But our “The Walking Dead”Expert and YouTube moderator Sebastian has doubts that there will really be a reasonable conclusion. You can find out his reasons for this in the video above and in the following paragraphs.

The concern, “The Walking Dead’ wouldn’t deliver a real finale, gets bigger with every announced spin-off. It is now known that not only Daryl (Norman Reedus) and the duo Maggie (Lauren Cohan) and Negan (Jeffrey Dean Morgan) will get their own follow-up series, but also Rick (Andrew Lincoln) and Michonne (Danai Gurira) their own joint spin get offshoots.
Now it’s bad enough that the announcements of these shows (at least in the case of Daryl, Maggie and Negan) already make it clear that the respective characters in the “The Walking Dead” finale will not die. This takes a lot of the excitement out of Season 11C, especially since it’s also one of the biggest fan favorites.
In addition, the spin-offs also ensure that there is no final mood in the first place. Season 11C just isn’t the end of “The Walking Dead“. The story then just splits into different series. In order for the transition to work well, the main series first has to explain why Maggie and Negan (not to forget: her husband’s killer) are now leaving for Manhattan together and why Daryl is also leaving his ancestral group after so long.
But that leaves only eight episodes, and a large part of that will be used to end the Commonwealth conflict, which has only really begun at the end of Season 11B. The recently released trailer also confirmed that even smarter zombies introduced in World Beyond will appear in the finale. A big revelation that will certainly eat up a lot of time, which is why many open questions will probably only be answered in the spin-offs.
So it is to be feared that Season 11C will not be a real “The Walking Dead” finale, which brings the story started in season 1 to a round conclusion, but simply the conclusion of the Commonwealth arc, which in the end quickly prepares the upcoming spin-offs.
Now that Rick and Michonne are getting their own mini-series, it’s not even certain that we’ll even see the zombie drama’s original protagonist in the main series again. After all, his story can then be worked up in the six episodes of the spin-off.
Should the “The Walking Dead” main cast really doesn’t appear in Season 11C, there can be no question of a worthy conclusion, thinks Sebastian. While there is still a possibility that Rick will return in the finale and that the spin-off will follow the events between his supposed death in Season 9 and his return, the show seems too busy with other storylines at the moment and there is a risk that that Rick’s comeback is only pushed in quickly at the end.
Let’s hope Sebastian’s worries are unjustified, and also the fans who are not ready to watch three more spin-off series, a successful “The Walking Dead’ finale on Disney+. You can watch the Season 11C trailer here:
