The Walking Dead has been on our screens for nearly a decade, but with the recent exits of major cast members and movies on the way, could the series be coming to an end?
Speaking to Entertainment Weekly, show boss Scott M. Gimple addressed its future, saying that despite being ten seasons in, “there’s a lot more story to tell”.
Gimple explained: “We’re always in contact with AMC to ensure we’re on the same page about moving forward. There isn’t a timetable. We’re continuing on.
“People are digging the show, and there’s a lot more story to tell. I’ve said it, [showrunner] Angela [Kang’s] said it too, that last issue of the comic reads like a pilot.
“There’s a ton more story to tell. As long as the audience wants it, we would love to tell it. So far, we’re very much on the same page.”
Gimple was then asked if he has any idea how it will all eventually end when the time comes.
“I’ve had visions and I think you always have to have a small variety of ways it could go because there are so many different things that can happen outside the narrative production-wise,” he said.
“As far as the ending of the show though, whenever it might be, I would be talking about it with Angela and really try to fulfil the whole of it.
“I think with Andy [Lincoln’s] departure, we tried to sort of fulfil the whole of Rick’s story on the show, and we had planned that for a good while. It’ll be the same whenever, if ever, the show ends. Maybe we simply don’t have to deal with it because the show goes on and on and on.”
Gimple also recently revealed more details on the upcoming Rick Grimes spin-off movies, saying that Rick will now be dealing with a much larger world.
