The veteran horror series will continue in 2020.
October 5, 2019
Today's New York Comic Con panel for The Walking Dead delivered some good, albeit obvious, news for the series in the form of a pickup for Season 11. Showrunner Angela Kang made the announcement, which comes just a day ahead of the post-apocalyptic horror drama's 10th season premiere.
The long-running series continues to rank as one of cable television's top scripted series, though its current audience numbers are far from what they were in its heyday. To paint a picture, viewership in Season 9 was pulling in numbers similar to what it was drawing way back in Season 1, before it gained 'hit' status.
It was also announced today that Lauren Cohan will making a return to the show in Season 10, bringing fan-favorite character Maggie Greene back into the fold. The news was somewhat expected, as the series Cohan left The Walking Dead to pursue, Whiskey Cavalier, was cancelled after its first season.

Btw, why haven't most walkers died off after so many years? The show creators take too many liberties with the zombies, and hope that the audience remains oblivious forever. This isn't a comic book after all. In the first couple of seasons they explained how only a small part of the brain remains active. Well, in order for *any* part of the brain to be active, you need some blood flow to the brain. How can a severed head remain 'alive' indefinitely, if all the blood is gone? How can a zombie keep using its limbs and muscles indefinitely, without any blood flow? You can't get up on your feet and walk around, if you can't feel your feet in the first place.
Enough with this nonsense.
It's getting harder and harder to overlook the idea that the walkers are still stumbling around years after the apocalypse. Or the idea that the Whisperers can survive as they do out in the open on game that has to be rare. These kind of things could be overlooked when the series was fresher, but now they just stick out and get annoying.
