Has The Walking Dead been renewed for Season 12? Here’s what we know:

Renewed Or Cancelled?

The Walking Dead has been a hallmark of AMC’s programming since the early 2000’s. The show has spawned numerous spin-offs and movie ideas, along with a loyal following hanging on the gang’s every adventure. It seems there’s no end to this hugely successful zombie franchise.

If you’ve been following this one over the years, you may be wondering if this one has been renewed or cancelled. Well, wonder no more! Here’s what we know about a renewal:


What is The Walking Dead Season 11 about?

The Walking Dead Season 11 is the final chapter in the show’s long run and adapts material from issues 175-193 of the comics. Here, we focus on the group’s encounter with the Commonwealth, a large network of communities that has advanced equipment with over 50,000 survivors living in different settlements.

We also get confrontations with the Reapers, a mysterious faction of hostile survivors that attacked and took Meridian, the former home of Maggie and her new people, the Wardens.


Has The Walking Dead been renewed for season 12?

At the time of writing, The Walking Dead has not been renewed for season 12. The announcement of this actually came about before the show aired, with AMC billing this as the final season. Now, it could be that the show pulls an “Attack on Titan” and claims it’s the final season and then suddenly throws extra parts out there with a “To Be Continued” but that seems highly unlikely.

However, there are numerous spin-offs in the works, including a standalone Daryl series, a separate Maggie and Negan drama, and finally a Michonne and Rick AMC show. So although the franchise starter, The Walking Dead, is ending, the show’s roots are very much spreading in different directions.

In the meantime though, we can definitively confirm that The Walking Dead will not be returning for season 12.


What we know about season 12 so far:

As detailed above, season 12 is not happening as AMC have already announced that this one has been cancelled. However, expect next year (2023) to be full of Walking Dead spin-offs, as detailed above.

Although the ending to the show is different to the comics, The Walking Dead’s finale on November 20th 2022 marks the final chapter of this illustrious series.

  1. Oh my goodness, I’ve just watched the very last episode 😢 I’m so sad this has now finished 😭 I’ve watched every episode and for them finish it like they have is so unfair. I want to know what happened to Rick and michone and I want to see them all together again…pleeasse make more! As a lot of fans have said..there is so much more than that!!!

  2. I’m still in shock that this is the very last episode of any series , from day 1 I was hooked , there’s soo much more to give . I cried soo much and this can’t end , producer’s listen to the fans .

  3. This show has become a huge part of our lives. We have watched every episode from every series, we have watched the seasons over and over, it would be amazing if they decided to do a season 12 and 13 with showing where michonne and Rick find each other, then once again they join the rest of their family. We need a good and real happy ending, I think we all deserve that. AMC needs to do more seasons we the faithful fans need more episodes. There is still so much of their journey to be told, new adventures, TWD still has so much more, it’s not a storyline that has run dry, there is more and AMC know this!!! Come on guys, what is there to loose!!!

  4. I love love love this show , I’m so sad that it’s ended.I knew Rick would come back but why didn’t it show him reuniting with judith? How could it be over already? This one made me ball my eyes out.:,(

  5. So sad to have watched the final walking dead. I understand there will be spin offs for Daryl, Maggie and Rick and michonne. Hopefully it’ll be going forward with Daryl. I hope Maggie is not going over past events we’ve already gone through. I’d like a series for michonne and Rick as they have a story of their own and I hope it all comes together and they get back, however, what is the story of the people who are chasing and captured Rick, that’s the story I want to know, or have I missed something. Bring it on, please

  6. I cannot believe they are ending such a fantastic program. There is so much more that can done with this.
    From the rebuild to the finding, absolutely endless. You must have made a lot of money from this show so why not keep on going.
    I for one will miss seeing such brilliant acting.

  7. I’m in shock at the ending ! ,
    But in a world stretched out as it is, and without all modern trappings, maybe it would be near on impossible to find loved ones, who have survived again,
    maybe!

  8. We know Rick is about working at a ice cream place, we thought we would end up seeing him again in the show.
    You shouldn’t end a show in a episode 11 it doesn’t feel right, you can do better let’s go to episode 15 or more. We all love the show so why end it, doesn’t make cents.
    Please keep going from South Australia

  9. It doesn’t matter what we say y’all are going to end it and leave so much for spin offs. This is laughable. It’s a great series but I think there is too much left on a cliff here. Y’all could have closed out some chapters. SMH. Still love to see it come back.

  10. The show is to geed to end after season 11 an I think it should definitely continue, this is definitely the best show out and to be aired

  11. PLEASE bring back TWD for S12! It’s a fabulous series, the acting is awesome, it’s a money spinner for AMC and it just gives the viewer everything a decent zombie series should. You can’t just leave it where it is at the end of S21, you just can’t….

  12. Please bring the the walking dead back I have lived my whole life around it this is not far let there be a ending please don’t leave us hanging it will give so many anxiety you will cause a rage and people will do things they should do please make a good ending we will wait to get you time to make The last season 12

  13. The Walking Dead’s a brilliant series it would be a discredit to end this as there is plenty of room for more story lines. also, it would great to find out the outcome off Rick and Michonne plus children?

  14. I love this show i would love to see it stick around for a few more seasons, I’m kinda sad that it’s ending💔🤦🏾‍♀️

  15. I love this show so much, have been watching since when I was 12 years and am 22 years now, I so much love the show wish the could continue. And I think the show can’t just end like that without seeing rick, michonne, Jadis at least we should see their coming back together. I so much miss rick in the season. Wish he could come back pls

  16. I hate that they are canceling such an interesting series. I love this show!!! I miss seeing Rick and Michonne. Please don’t just end the series like this.. I need to see if negen ever got to see his wife and unborn child again. I especially need to see if Judith and Rj ever get to see their parents again. Please for the love of God bring back!! I’ll be grieving until the show returns.

  17. I hate that the walking dead has come to an end! I’m grieving! Please! Please! Let us have some more of this fantastic programme!!…

  18. Love the show please make more and bring Rick back. This is a really good one. Don’t take it from all of us viewers.

  19. Best tv show ever, gutted it is coming to an end. Getting Alexandria back could have lasted a few more seasons. AMC should reconsider ending it, for the loyal fans that have been there since the beginning.

  20. I love this show, it is the best show.
    I hope they do season 12. I am going to miss Daryl, Carol, Maggie, Gabriel, Negan, and I love to see back, Rick and Michonne. Please, producers do the show again 🙏 😭

  21. We miss Rick and Michonne.Hoping for a good ending with them for us viewers can finally relieve about the questions on our mind,Where they are? How are they? Simple questions but so hard to find the answers.Please give us a reasonable ending😭

  22. I am really going to miss TWD series. I’ve been watching since the series started and waiting for each season to start and pick up again. Even though this has lasted longer than any other series of this type, I will truly miss it and the excellent actors that I have come to know.

  23. I been watching since it first started and can’t believe it has ended like this AMC have a lot to answer for letting all the fans down and leaving us with no ending

  24. This show is my life. I have watched the seasons over and over and wish they would do a season 12 and 13 with showing where Rick and michonne end up. We need a good ending, I think we all deserve that. AMC needs to do more seasons we TWD fans need more… we have years of time and love spent into this show…

  25. It’s heartbreaking to learn that this movie is ending. To whoever has ever watched this movie, I hope they feel they are part of the survivors family, that is how this film makes you feel.

    I feel sad to learn the series are no more.
    The spinoffs are fine, but would not be as great as the mothership TWD series.

    I love all the cast in this movie. The movie also has no racism, everyone leads. It’s a family-like.

    Sad to see this movie ending.😭😭

  26. I have been a faithful watcher of the walking dead since season 1 episode 1. Millions of people are addicted to this series. I am one of them. This series is part of my life and just about everyone I know lives. The series ending is breaking my heart. Please don’t end it. It’s the best thing I have ever watched. Daryl is my favorite but I love everyone on this show. They have become part of my family.

  27. The series became a ‘part of our live’ we’re gonna miss it as is. But looking forward to see Rock & Michonne again.

  28. I love this movie so much I can’t wait for Rick and michonne to return back to the movie because their children are still there Judith and Arjun
