About this show:
AMC ANNOUNCES RENEWAL OF "THE WALKING DEAD" FOR AN ELEVENTH SEASON AT NEW YORK COMIC CON. "Coming off of the six additional episodes for Season 10, which focused on smaller, character-driven stories, we're excited to kick off Season 11 bigger than ever," says Angela Kang, showrunner and executive producer of The Walking Dead. "The stakes will be high - we'll see more zombies, tons of action, intriguing new stories, never-before-seen locations and our groups together in one community for the first time, trying to rebuild what the Whisperers took from them."
AMC confirmed the renewal of The Walking Dead for season 11, with the return of Lauren Cohan, who plays fan favorite character Maggie Greene. The Walking Dead executive producers Scott M. Gimple and Angela Kang announced the news at the show's annual NYCC panel, surprising fans by bringing out Cohan to join the show's executive producers and cast on stage. The series' renewal comes one day ahead of the show's season 10 premiere on Sunday, October 6 at 9pm/8c.
Over ten seasons, The Walking Dead remains the highest-rated series on ad-supported cable television and has given life to an expanding Universe that now includes the companion series Fear the Walking Dead, a new third series from Chief Content Officer Scott M. Gimple and TWD veteran writer and producer Matt Negrete, as well as an untitled The Walking Dead Movie, starring Andrew Lincoln, with Universal and Skybound Entertainment.
"The Walking Dead burst out of the gate ten years ago as a genre show that had all the character depth of a top-tier prestige drama," said Sarah Barnett, President of AMC Networks Entertainment Group & AMC Studios. "And now ten years later - led by the brilliant Angela Kang and fueled by one of the most consistently talented casts in television - this phenomenon is flourishing creatively, with critics and audiences embracing its reset. We're delighted to welcome back Lauren Cohan, she has meant so much to this show and its passionate, global fanbase, who are in for a fantastic ride over the coming months."
