The Eleventh Series Of The Walking Dead Will Be The Last
The show's final season will feature an extended run of 24 episodes and will commence at the start of autumn in 2021.
This farewell tour series will run until early 2022, but then that's your lot.
So far, we don't know whether it will be split up into two or three runs of 12 or eight episodes respectively, but the one thing we can be sure of is that once that's all gone, it's gone for good.
The hugely successful zombie thriller show started back in 2010 and immediately became a global success.
It was the number one ranked show on US cable several times, and has spawned a number of spin-off shows.
The Walking Dead chief content officer Scott Gimple said: "It's been ten years gone bye [a reference to the first ever episode 'Days Gone Bye'].
"What lies ahead are two more to come and stories and stories to tell beyond that.
"What's clear is that this show has been about the living, made by a passionate cast, team of writer/producers, producers, and crew, bringing to life the vision put forth by Robert Kirkman in his brilliant comic - and supported by the best fans in the world.

"We have a lot of thrilling story left to tell on TWD, and then, this end will be a beginning of more Walking Dead -- brand new stories and characters, familiar faces and places, new voices, and new mythologies.
"This will be a grand finale that will lead to new premieres. Evolution is upon us.
"The Walking Dead lives."
So, what he means by that is that there's going to be a spin-off that focuses on Norman Reedus as Daryl Dixon and Melissa McBride as Carol Peletier.
That show will be helmed by Walking Dead producer Angela Kang.
Then there's also going to be an anthology series that will follow the lives of different characters from the show, getting stuck into bits of the show that haven't been scrutinised just yet.
Kang explained: "I look forward to digging in with our brilliant writers, producers, directors, cast and crew to bring this epic final chapter of Robert Kirkman's story to life for our fans over the next two years.
"The Walking Dead flagship series has been my creative home for a decade and so it's bittersweet to bring it to an end, but I could not be more excited to be working with Scott Gimple and AMC to develop a new series for Daryl and Carol.
"Working with Norman Reedus and Melissa McBride has been a highlight of my career and I'm thrilled that we get to keep telling stories together."
