I doubt they'll set an end date soon because it's still AMC's highest rated and most watched show.
As long as the 'dead' shows make money AMC will never cancel them. How AMC has treated their shows and the people who work on them has clearly shown they don't give a damn how the are viewed.
Lowest ever ratings for this week’s episode apparently. Time to wrap that **** up.
AMC isn't going wrap it up when it's still their most watched/highest rated show, plus the money they've made from merchandise. They renewed Lodge 49 and that has less than 500,000 viewers. TWD more than triples Better Call Saul's viewership. AMC won't give up that easily.
It's definitely a indicator to AMC that this **** has an expiration date. All that talk of going 20 years is out the window.
Also I still haven't caught up on the latest episode which is something I have never done for TWD.
I’m glad ratings are tanking. I know it’s part of an overall trend with tv but after bringing Neegan on no board, this show started to really fall apart.
The problem wasn't Negan, the problem was them stretching out a storyline that could have been wrapped up in one season over two seasons. Now they're getting back on course a bit but it feels like it's too late.
I see the show making it to 11 seasons and that's it.
Has the showrunners or network execs even acknowledged the massive ratings fall since season 6?
That massive fall from season 7
Even though I haven't watched the show after season 6 episode 8, I'm still sad to know that Andrew is leaving the show. I hope he gets a new show just like Lauren.
Greg Nicotero says The Walking Dead won't suffer due to Rick Grimes' exit
The show itself has become a metaphor. A ****ing zombie that refuses to die.
Everyone involved with the show seems quite cagey about Rick's fate, so it makes me wonder if they have some trick up their sleeve. I can't imagine what that could be, though.
I'm sure he very much could. I gotta imagine his new project will be worlds different than Rick.
That's not true. Zombies are very much easy to kill. You just take out the head. Once you do that, it's all over.
Actually, nevermind. It's a great metaphor.
Multiple TWD tv movies going into production.
Walking Dead: Multiple Rick-Centric Movies Starring Andrew Lincoln Eyed
I thought Lincoln wanted to be done?
I guess he was just done spending 9 months out of the year shooting. 2-6 months is a lot more appealing.
Tonight's episode had a little of the old magic in it. Let's hope the new direction has a little more of that ahead.
The article also mentions the potential to film in England.
dawwwww they couldn't get a carl hallucination? nope cause **** gimple.
I quit watching this some time back but heard how they handled Rick's departure.
A cheap cop out move that is unsurprising given how many previous cheap cop out moments the show has had. That they did it again in what sounds like the most ridiculous way possible is why I'm glad I gave up on this show. He is flown away in a chopper like some kind of b-movie villian stunt? So Rick's final stand was more a limp away from the series only to return later.
The spoilers I read pointed out the many places where he could have died in this episode and it been meaningful.
It's called "The Walking Dead" but mostly feature people fighting people instead of trying to survive zombies in a dead world. The zombies only ever feature as background plot devices and occasional distractions when they remember zombies are the entire point of the series.
Anyhow the movie announcement also cheapens what little impact the episode ending was meant to bring.
Also, Gimple is supposed to do the movies. So, good luck with that.
I think his running (and ruining) the series is a big part of why I quit watching TWD.
