The Walking Dead: No Negan Spinoff Coming, No Other Characters Either

The end of The Walking Dead has been announced and the 11th season would be its last, AMC also revealed that it had green lit not one but two new spinoffs.  There are also discussions of several other Walking Dead concepts in the works, but fans won’t be getting some of the stories they were hoping for.

The first spinoff will focus on Daryl Dixon and Carol Peletier and will arrive in 2023. Norman Reedus and Melissa McBride will return to their starring roles, as the two final remaining characters from the show’s first season. The show is co-created by Dead-verse chief content officer Scott M. Gimple and Walking Dead showrunner Angela Kang, who’ll fill that same role on the new show.

“It’s bittersweet to bring [the flagship series] to an end,” Kang said in a statement, “but I could not be more excited to be working with Scott Gimple and AMC to develop a new series for Daryl and Carol. 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.”

The second new Walking Dead show will be called, Tales of the Walking Dead. The show will be an anthology series that will consist of standalone episodes or arcs, may revolve around previously-introduced characters or new ones, and may or may not shed new light on the backstories of familiar characters.

The other shows, well, they won’t feature some of the characters that you’ve come to love.  According to Deadline, there aren’t plans for a Maggie (Lauren Cohan) or Negan (Jeffrey Dean Morgan) spinoff.  A Negan-centric show is one that fans have asked for.  We suspect that many of the stories fans are hoping for will show up in Tales of the Walking Dead.

Cracked AMC COO Ed Carroll, “There really is so much ‘walking’ ahead, in a number of very exciting directions, for this extraordinary creative universe.”

These shows sound exciting! And, it supports a lot of the rumors of individual characters, such as Abraham and The Governor, getting stand-alone movies or short series runs!  This can now happen with Tales of The Walking Dead.

What do you think of the two spinoffs and the end of The Walking Dead? Let us know in the comments below!

  1. I really hope to see the same original actors in their roles. Us fans have come to love and even hate so many of them, but they are each important in their roles. Would love to see Negan backstories. Find out whatever happened to the police officers from Beth’s end story. Maybe some crossovers.

  2. It would be great to see some episodes that revolve around the CDC. They can have a ten episode series that shows a little more about how the disease first started and how it got out of control so fast and how it went global. Having Dr Edwin Jenner (Noah Emmerich) and his wife, who ran the CDC, would be really interesting

  4. Hate to see the Walking Dead is coming to an end love this show will be watching rerun on Netflix love all you guys

  5. I am very excited about The Walking Dead spin-offs that are being planned! As much as I have loved the show, since S1 E1, I wasn’t terribly saddened by the announcement that it is coming to an end. It seems to me that, The Walking Dead has carried the story as far as it can, while still maintaining the quality of storytelling that viewers have come to expect from it.
    I am especially delighted to hear that Norman Reedus, and Melissa McBride, will continue to carry the story forward in their original characters of Daryl and Carol. This will provide an unbroken storyline from the very beginning, for those of us who have followed the saga from day one. However, I’m also very excited about Tales of the Walking Dead, and believe this is the best path for regaining the intimacy of the earlier episodes!
    Thank you, thank you, thank you, for continuing to create ways for us to be able to access the universe of TWD, that you have gifted us with!!

  6. Walking Dead died when Rick left. He was the backbone of the show and then his son dies. Too much grief for this old lady so I quit watching.

  7. I’ve watched TWD since the first episode & am sad to see it go! I’ve loved these characters throughout. I will continue to watch & support anything TWD.
