The Walking Dead may be about to close out on AMC with Season 11, sparking a new spinoff with Daryl Dixon. 

The popular show has been recording tremendous ratings in Season 10, even without its lead character Rick Grimes – played by Andrew Lincoln – who bowed out in Season 9.

Since that time, the likes of Daryl, Michonne, and others have been left to lead the pack in their fight against the Whisperers.

Now, the Season 10 finale hasn’t even been shown yet, with it set for an October 4 release, and a huge leak that has now been confirmed has revealed TWD will end in Season 11.

Walking Dead Season 11 confirmed to be final season

On September 9, gaming website IGN posted a graphic — that was very quick deleted — that alluded to the show’s demise.

A short while later, a new tweet from IGN confirmed that the show’s 11th season will be its last, and that a spinoff series focused on Daryl Dixon and Carol Peletier will be premiering in 2023.

The show’s co-creator Angela Kang made it clear that the new series will likely feel a lot like a TWD piece, confirming that she and executive producer Scott Gimple will be keeping the story going. “The Walking Dead flagship series has been my creative home for a decade and so it’s bittersweet to bring it to an end,” she said, “but I could not be more excited to be working with Scott Gimple and AMC to develop a new series for Daryl and Carol.”

When Rick Grimes left the other survivors to their own devices, fans would have been expecting a heroic return. We might still get that, but the bigger picture for the franchise’s top TV show looks to be at risk.

Of course, there is no new information yet on what’s to come in the spinoff series, but it’s worth remembering that a Rick Grimes movie is also in the works, so the Walking Dead universe is very far from reaching its demise just yet.

The Walking Dead Season 10 finale airs on October 4.

Star Wars fanatics hoping for some more news on the popular character Ahsoka Tano ahead of The Mandalorian Season 2 should strap themselves in, because an insider has leaked huge news.

Ahsoka has been a fan-favorite since the days of Star Wars Clone Wars and eventually continued her story arc into Rebels. Now, while it had already been confirmed that Ahsoka would be in The Mandalorian, we have new info about just how big her role will be.

In a now-deleted tweet, reporter and insider John Campea posted a list of five things about The Mandalorian Season 2, including a claim that Ahsoka would have a small scene in a single episode.

He noted that one of the five things he posted was a lie, but when questioned about whether the Ahsoka info wasn’t truthful, he claimed that, “you had a 20% chance of guessing which one wasn’t true… and you didn’t get it.”

John Campea seemed to confirm Ahsoka will be in Season 2.

This suggests that Ahsoka will in fact have a small role, however, the length of the scene may be a bit controversial.

According to Campea, Ahsoka will be in only “one episode” and it’s not exactly a “cameo.”

So, for fans hoping for a little more than just a blink-and-you’ll-miss-it scene, you’re going to have to wait for another show or movie.

Ahsoka isn’t exactly a “cameo” according to insider John Campea.

“I think you’ll be happy regardless,” Campea wrote to a fan not pleased with the news. “One episode and all.”

As for when she will appear, as Dexerto previously noted, Dave Filoni inked the season’s fifth episode and Ahsoka is his favorite, having introduced her way back in The Clone Wars.

Star Wars and Disney have pulled off small interconnected semi-cameos from animated shows before. For example, the Ghost from Rebels is seen briefly in Rogue One.
