The Walking Dead may be over, but only for those who watch it as it airs on AMC. For a great many others, they are patiently waiting for the show to arrive on Netflix so they can binge the extra-long final season of the show. Well, the wait is almost over as The Walking Dead season 11 will arrive on Netflix to help kick off 2023.
Netflix has announced that the entire, extended final season of the hit zombie series will debut on January 6, 2023. While the final season was split into three, eight episode chunks in its broadcast run, all 24 episodes will drop on the streaming service at once. So get ready for one long, post-apocalyptic binge in the new year.
Here is the synopsis for The Walking Dead season 11 premiere.
“Returning to Alexandria from a critical food mission, the group realizes it isn’t enough. Maggie proposes a new plan, potentially a suicide mission. What choice do they have? They must find more food for all their people in order to survive and efficiently rebuild Alexandria. If they don’t, Alexandria falls, taking them down with it. Once on the road, a violent storm erupts forcing them underground into a subway tunnel. As nerves fray and suspicions increase, chaos ensues. The terror is relentless as our people get a glimpse of what Maggie and her group endured prior to returning to Alexandria. Meanwhile, those captured by the strange soldiers are relocated to another undisclosed location.”
Even though the main show is over, the franchise is really only just getting started. AMC is setting up a whole universe of shows set in the same world as Robert Kirkman’s beloved comic book that started it all. Fear the Walking Dead is still running, plus they already aired the short-lived Walking Dead: World Beyond. We’ve also got Walking Dead: Dead City, which will focus on Maggie and Negan in New York. And, Daryl Dixon is getting his own spin-off, not to mention the limited series that will bring back Andrew Lincoln as Rick Grimes to wrap up his arc. So yeah, TWD universe still has a lot of ground to cover.
The cast for the show’s final season includes Ian Anthony Dale, Laurie Fortier, Norman Reedus, Jeffrey Dean Morgan, Lauren Cohan, Melissa McBride, Khary Payton, Seth Gilliam, Ross Marquand, Christian Serratos, Josh McDermitt, Cailey Fleming, Cooper Andrews, Cassady McClincy, Nadia Hilker, Cooper Andrews, Eleanor Matsuura, Paola Lazaro, Angel Theory, and Lauren Ridloff.
