In an interview with Deadline, showrunneuse Angela Kang revealed why the final episode of “The Walking Dead”, whose final season has just started airing, has not yet been written.
The broadcast of the final season of The Walking Dead began this Monday, August 23 on OCS. However, the end of the horror series does not seem imminent, since the last episode of the program has not yet been written!
There are several reasons for this. As showrunner Angela Kang explained in an interview with Deadline, the writing of the series relies on a small team of writers. “We have to take turns writing the episodes in blocks” she detailed, specifying nevertheless that the conclusion of the series was already planned.
We have already planned everything in outline. (…) We are going through a process in which some details are still subject to change. But we have a perfectly clear vision of what we’re going to do until the end of the series. The writing phase is also well underway.
While it seems surprising that the final episode of the final season has yet to be written, there is obviously no cause for concern; in order to allow the series to end in the best possible way, this eleventh season has been extended by the AMC channel to 24 episodes, against the 16 episodes of previous seasons.
The broadcast of this epilogue will also be divided into three parts, the first of which begins today. We will therefore have to wait at least until the end of next year to discover the very last episode of The Walking Dead, a delay which therefore largely allows the writing and filming of it to be completed.
