The Walking Dead fandom has been on an emotional roller coaster for several years. Main cast members left the series, including the leader Rick Grimes (Andrew Lincoln), the series announced that season 11 would be the last, and many spinoffs have also been announced. So, when did The Walking Dead series begin?
The Walking Dead began airing on AMC in 2010 on Halloween night. Viewers tuned in to check out the new zombie series without imagining the series would run for 11 seasons. Comic fans tuned in to view the pilot to see how the comic translated to the screen with no idea of what to expect. But 12 years later, who would have thought that a comic story could have spawned a universe as vast as what it has become? I doubt in his wildest dreams did, comic creator Robert Kirkman ever dream of this.
On November 20, 2022, at 9 p.m. ET AMC aired the final episode of The Walking Dead. Fans of the series were pleasantly surprised with the ending of the series. Many believed it was going to be difficult to wrap up storylines and give a satisfactory ending to this chapter of The Walking Dead series. Adding Rick and Michonne (Danai Gurira) was the cherry on top of a fantastic final episode.

There are three new spinoffs in the works, Dead City, Daryl Dixon, and Rick and Michonne; although fans are looking forward to these series, nothing will ever compare to the flagship.
Dead City will premiere in April 2023, and Daryl Dixon has been filming in France with no announcement of a premiere, but it is expected sometime in 2023. Rick and Michonne will begin filming Atlanta on January 6, 2023.
