Here's all The Walking Dead spin-off shows and films coming after S11
Fans have been devastated to learn that The Walking Dead is coming to an end after Season 11.
But thankfully that is not the end of the story as there is still so much, ahem, walking ahead of us despite the OG show wrapping up.
Yep, the world created on the AMC show will live on through spin-offs and movies as viewers get to continue following the stories of some of their favourite characters.
Plus the news of the show ending was very much cushioned by the announcement Melissa McBride and Norman Reedus will be back as Daryl and Carol in 2023.
While we’ve been getting updates about the Rick Grimes movie in recent months, so here’s what’s coming up in the world of TWD.

Showrunner Angela Kang announced that Daryl Dixon (played by Norman Reedus) and Carol Peletier (Melissa McBride) would be getting their own spin-off – which will be released in 2023.
She explained: ‘I look forward to digging in with our brilliant writers, producers, directors, cast and crew to bring this epic final chapter of Robert Kirkman’s story to life for our fans over the next two years.
‘The Walking Dead flagship series has been my creative home for a decade and so it’s bittersweet to bring it to an end, but I could not be more excited to be working with Scott Gimple and AMC to develop a new series for Daryl and Carol.’
Angela added: ‘Working with Norman Reedus and Melissa McBride has been a highlight of my career and I’m thrilled that we get to keep telling stories together.’
And we’re going to be just as thrilled to know the fan-favorites will be back on our screens eventually.
So far it has not been given a title or an exact released date by AMC.
Rick Grimes film trilogy
It was first announced in November 2018 that TWD bosses were planning on bringing Rick Grimes to Hollywood.
In January this year, showrunner Scott M. Gimple told Entertainment Weekly: ‘We have a couple of different plans that we’re going with depending on a couple of different factors we have to deal with on everything from story to product aspects.’
But it appears the project has started to move along nicely – all thanks to the coronavirus pandemic.
Producer Greg Nicotero recently explained to SyFy Wire: ‘From what I understand from Mr. Gimple, the script is well underway. I’ve looked at a couple of early drafts, but I haven’t seen anything lately, but from what I understand they’re digging away at it.
‘One thing about this kind of situation is people that work at home… You know, writers… They’re able to take advantage of this time, and it’s a good time.’
The as-yet-untitled movie is the first in a planned trio of films to focus on Rick and is set to reveal what happened to him and Anne (Pollyanna McIntosh) after they were taken away by a Civic Republic Military helicopter.
And it has been rumoured that Danai Gurira, who played Rick’s girlfriend Michonne, will also make an appearance in the movies after her exit episode left the doors open for their reunion.
It has also been claimed that Jon Bernthal would be making a brief cameo as one of the show’s first villains, Shane Walsh.
There has been no release date revealed.
Tales of the Walking Dead
Alexa Mansour and Aliyah Royale plays ‘two sisters, [who] along with two friends, leave a place of safety and comfort to brave dangers, known and unknown, living and undead, on an important quest.’
The series finished filming just before the coronavirus shut down, and bosses have not wasted time before starting to work on season two.
Appearing on a virtual panel at San Diego Comic-Con, showrunner Matt Negrete gave fans an update as he said: ‘All of the first season is in the can. It’s all ready, ready to be aired. So I’m excited for that to happen. And we are in the midst of, the writers and I, working on season two right now. We’re in the thick of it.
‘So half of my stress of this panel is making sure that I don’t actually say something spoilery because my head is so immersed in season two right now.’
He continued: ‘But yeah, we were lucky in that we were able to wrap up post-production right before, actually just right around the time everything shut down because of the Covid situation.’
Fear the Walking Dead
The popular companion series is preparing for a sixth season and fans can’t wait to check back with Morgan Jones and the gang!
The Walking Dead series first graced our screens in 2010, focusing on a group of survivors after a zombie apocalypse – as they battled to regain control of their lives against the ‘walkers’, as well as other humans looking to do them harm.
It premiered on 31 October, 2010, and sparked a number of spin-offs, as well as popular companion series, Fear The Walking Dead.
The Walking Dead will return to AMC and NOW TV October 4.
