The end of “The Walking Dead” is fast approaching for all fans of the series. But behind the scenes, the actors have already bid farewell to the show launched in 2010, since the filming of the last episodes is officially over. And some shared their feelings about the end of this long adventure.
Players say goodbye to The Walking Dead
Twelve years after its launch, The Walking Dead is about to unveil its epilogue. The eleventh and final season of the series is currently airing, and fourteen episodes have already been released. But as a reminder, the final chapter of the show has more episodes than the previous ones. Namely 24, against 16 in general. So there are still ten episodes to discover for fans. But the actors have nothing more to shoot because the shots of the last season of The Walking Dead just ended.
To celebrate the end of The Walking DeadI’one of the show’s producers and directors, Greg Nicotero, posted on his Instagram account a short video taken during the last day of filming with Norman Reedus. The interpreter of Daryl, and one of the only characters to have taken part in all the seasons of the series, for his part shared a video dating from the filming of one of the first seasons. And he accompanied it with a message thanking the fans for their loyalty to the show :
It’s in the box. 11 seasons, 12 years. I’ve never been beaten up so much, and it was absolutely brilliant. Thank you to all of you who have shared this adventure with us, and what an adventure it has been.
A series main who stops, but…
Christian Serratos, the interpreter of Rosita since the fourth season of the series, also said goodbye via a story posted on his Instagram account: “I already miss the forest. I love my family from The Walking Dead. » Paola Lázaro, alias “Princess”, also shared her emotion during an interview for Insider: “I think we are all physically tired, but we are sad to say goodbye to the technical teams, to the other actors, to all those involved in the series. No longer wearing my coat, my pink jacket, makes me sad. I fell in love with this character so much. »
As very often when a series stops after having lasted so long, the actors find it difficult to accept the end of the adventure. This will also most certainly be the case for fans when the last episode has aired. But if the series launched in 2011 will soon bow out, fans have reason to console themselves. Because, as a reminder, the universe of The Walking Dead will continue to expand in the form of spin-offs.
After fear, the walking dead and WorldBeyondwe will be entitled to a film on the character of Rick Grimes and a new series on those of Daryl and Carol. And CMA recently announced a new spin-off! This time, Maggie and Negan will be the two main protagonists, and will therefore continue their adventures there. Entitled Isle of the Dead, the show is scheduled for 2023.
