The Walking Dead star Jeffrey Dean Morgan says AMC’s announcement that the show will end with season 11 stunned actors and producers.
The Walking Dead Star Jeffrey Dean Morgan said AMC’s announcement in September that the show will conclude with season 11 was not just a shock to viewers, but also to the actors and producers.
Morgan, who plays Negan, said Collider that showrunner Angela Kang and content director Scott M. Gimple had to unexpectedly change their plans. “The news, when we received it in the middle of the pandemic, was a complete surprise, not only for me and the rest of the actors, but for everyone involved in the show from production,” Morgan said. “Scott Gimple and Angela Kang had no idea either. It came out of nowhere and there was such a big pivot. I think they had season 11 planned, where they were going to go, and all of a sudden it became, ‘We also have to close the story, from some way ‘”.

Morgan continued, “It took everyone by surprise, so it was a huge twist. And then they added the six added episodes to season 10, and instead of doing 16, we’re going to do 24 more. There were a lot of things where to think “.
Season 11 will have 24 episodes thanks to AMC extending its episode order by eight, and the producers aren’t rushing. “It still doesn’t feel like the end and I’m glad because it’s a lot of time to think about the end,” Morgan said. “We have another year here to film, and we are filming directly. It is brutal. But I know it is there. It is in the back of our heads that it is there. After the six episodes of COVID that we did, we are almost finished airing, we are back in full force. “
The Walking Dead stars Norman Reedus, Melissa McBride, Lauren Cohan, Josh McDermitt, Christian Serratos, Jeffrey Dean Morgan, Seth Gilliam, Ross Marquand, Khary Payton, and Cooper Andrews. The series airs Sundays at 9 p.m. ET / PT on AMC and is available to air early on AMC +.
