The Walking Dead: Season 11 Will Reportedly Set Up [SPOILER] as New Series Lead

Published on February 7th, 2021 | Updated on February 7th, 2021 | By FanFest

The Walking Dead is headed towards its final 30 episodes after nearly a decade run as one of the greatest shows ever on cable television. AMC has made it very clear that they plan to continue the franchise for possibly another decade as it announced several spinoffs are in the works.  We also know that three films have been promised, starring Andrew Lincoln as Rick Grimes.  However, beyond the Daryl and Carol untitled spinoff and Tales of The Walking Dead, we don’t know what will happen with our other favorites.  Don’t worry. It sounds like there’s a plan and it centers around one important character.

According to a report on We Got This Covered, The Walking Dead Season 11 and a future spinoff will center around none other than Judith Grimes.  This makes a lot of sense, as Judith appears to be taking over the story line established in Robert Kirkman’s comic book that originally went to Judith’s older brother, Carl Grimes. In the comics, the focus shifts from Rick to Carl, as Carl is the future of the world, along with his generation.

The report doesn’t give much more in terms of specifics, but it does make a lot of sense, as fans seriously questioned Carl’s death as one of the worst decisions ever made by the writers of The Walking Dead.  Specifically, comic book fans realized that Carl’s death was a huge deviation from the comic books and altered the future of the franchise significantly.

Another thing that isn’t clear is whether or not we will see Judith continue as the franchise lead at her current age on the show.  Given how the comic books go, it is more likely that, eventually, an older actress will be brought in to play Judith.  This would especially make sense if the show follows the time-jumps established in the comic books.

AMC+ will debut the first episode of The Walking Dead‘s extended 10th season on February 21 ahead of its premiere on February 28 at 9PM ET/PT on AMC. To sweeten the deal, all subsequent episodes will debut early on the premium streaming bundle, every Thursday before hitting AMC beginning March 4. AMC also released a new promo below!

The show is set to return on February 28, 2021 with six new episodes. The titles of the episodes are as follows:

  • Home Sweet Home
  • Find Me
  • One More
  • Splinter
  • Diverged
  • Here’s Negan

When we last saw The Walking Dead, we saw the end of the Whisperers War. The Kingdom had fallen, Hilltop was virtually destroyed and Alexandria abandoned to prepare for final battle. Our survivors were trapped and separated from one another. Yet, when faced with almost certain death, they rallied together to fight, killing Beta (Ryan Hurst) and eliminating the threat of the horde.

The episode, Find Me, according to the synopsis, will be about:

“An adventure for Daryl and Carol turns sideways when they come across an old cabin. It takes Daryl back to the years when he left the group after Rick disappeared as he relives a time that only the apocalypse could manifest.”

Daryl was on his own during this six year period. He was away from the group and trying to reconcile the loss of Rick and what the future would bring. Check out a couple of images that AMC released from his upcoming episode.

Home Sweet Home, which will be the episode airing on February 28th, will center on Maggie’s return to the group and where she was the past six years or so.

Here’s the official description:

“Maggie has returned with a story she is not ready to share, even when her past catches up to her. Negan’s safety is at stake again. Daryl and Maggie fight an unseen and unknown threat. “

These new episodes promise to be a much deeper dive into each of the characters. Which episode are you looking forward to the most and do you think focusing the franchise around Judith is the right move?
