The Walking Dead Season 11 has been greenlit but due to the coronavirus pandemic, it has not yet started filming. Although fans of the AMC zombie hit might be in for a bit of a wait, some are wondering about the return of Maggie Rhee and whether she’s changed since her time away from the series.
Even if production begins soon, The Walking Dead Season 11 might not fit in 2020.
Now studios are still working out ways to resume production on television shows and movies, an uncomfortable reality is starting to take shape when it comes to The Walking Dead Season 11. Even if the show could start filming soon there isn’t room on the calendar for it to fit in 2020.
“Current events have unfortunately made it impossible to complete post-production of The Walking Dead Season 10 finale, so the current Season will end with its 15th episode on April 5,” the AMC network said.
When it does eventually arrive, the programme-makers have promised the finale will be “an epic, action-packed thriller with plenty of surprises.”
The show, which has been going for 10 years, has starred the likes of Andrew Lincoln, Norman Reedus and Steven Yeun, as well as Chandler Riggs, Melissa McBride, Lauren Cohan and Danai Gurira.
Another big issue is the number of available time slots for Season 11. Before 2020 began, fans were looking forward to a possible 42 weeks of content throughout the year from TWD 10B and 11A, Fear the Walking Dead Season 6 and World Beyond Season 1.
With only a few weeks remaining left of 2020, and the potential for 19 episodes of The Walking Dead Universe available, there isn’t much time for Season 11 in the calendar even if filming resumed and the episodes were available. As it is, though, it looks like time is running out, both from a filming and production standpoint as well as a calendar standpoint. AMC likely wouldn’t run TWD and another show on the same night, so it makes sense that it will have to be pushed back to 2021.
We can always hope to see more of The Walking Dead in 2020, but at least we know we’ll still have the Season 10 finale and with any luck, AMC will beef it up to become a two-hour rather than a standard episode.
Creators/Producers on Plot of the Walking Dead Season 11
While in an interview, the producer teased us with some information about the Season 11 plot.
Kang said, “Maggie is part of the heart of these people’s lives. There’s so much love for her within our communities, and she was a leader at a time when so much of the leadership at Hilltop had been lost. Even as we’re working on Season 11, we’ve got so much great stuff planned for her.”
She also gave an indie between Negan and Darryl. She said about that a little more of Negan and Darryl in episode 16, and it became part of the story even beyond that. In this situation of the pandemic, all we can do is, just wait and hope!
