According to an article in the Express and We Got This Covered, sources claim that AMC’s The Walking Dead will be ending at the end of Season 12 of the popular zombie drama. Added to the speculation, Brandon Davis of Comicbook.com’s video commentary and an article point out that Eugene’s radio conversations being an important storyline that directly results in the end of The Walking Dead comic books.
Also important, it is rumored that the contracts for Norman Reedus (Daryl) and Melissa McBride (Carol) run through the end of the 12th season. This potential timeline does work with the fact that the source material for The Walking Dead has limited material now that the comic book has come to an end.
The ratings for The Walking Dead continue to decline. However, the focus appears to be the future growth of the expanded universe with the filming of the new second, unnamed, spinoff, along with the Rick Grimes film trilogy, there are many areas that the show can continue to expand. Other rumored endeavors include additional spinoffs and comic books focused on single, fan-favorite characters such as Abraham and Daryl.
