The Walking Dead season 11 is set to pull out all the stops for the hotly anticipated finale.
A mere 24 episodes remain until the AMC zombie series is concluded and executive producer Denise Huth has teased an action-packed ending.
‘We’ll go out with a bang,’ Huth enthused during a Twitch live stream with TWDUniverse.
‘Nothing lasts forever. It’s a cool story, and I’m so proud, and I’m so grateful that we’ve been able to tell it as fully as we’ve been allowed to do, and that’s 100% a credit to the fans.
‘If fans don’t show up, the show doesn’t go on.’
He continued: ‘We were very, very fortunate right from the beginning that it was lightning in a bottle – with the characters, and the story, and the audience. It all came together.
’11 years later, 11 seasons later, to be here is an honor. This is a pretty rare era for television. It’ll probably never happen again in the world of streaming, which wasn’t much of a thing when we started. I’m proud.’
The Walking Dead season 11 is set to premiere later this month, with a trailer hinting at trouble for Maggie Greene (Lauren Cohan).
In a teaser, her voice can be heard stressing just how important it is that the survivors of their post-apocalyptic world protect what is most important in their lives.

‘What we have, compared to everything that’s out there, it’s rare. It’s why we need to take it back,’ she says, before receiving a gun from her former nemesis, Negan (Jeffrey Dean Morgan).
At the very end of the teaser, Maggie is shown hanging off of something, holding on for dear life with her fingertips.
However, she loses her grip right before the clip ends, delivering a dramatic cliffhanger that will undoubtedly leave viewers feeling anxious as they wait to discover Maggie’s fate.
A previous trailer teased ‘the beginning of the end’, with numerous fans expressing their excitement over what the new season has in store.
While it’s been three years since Andrew Lincoln last appeared as Rick Grimes in The Walking Dead, a film about his character is currently in the works.
The Walking Dead creator Rick Kirkham recently vowed that the movie will be ‘worth the wait’ despite the delays it has suffered, describing Love Actually actor Andrew as ‘amazing’.
The Walking Dead returns August 15 on AMC Plus or August 22 on AMC in the US. In the UK, the final series will air on Star on Disney+ from August 23.
