The Walking Dead’s Jeffrey Dean Morgan has spoken about the drama’s upcoming 11th season, promising something ‘special’.
The actor who plays the villainous Negan on the show discussed the remaining episodes with fans during a Twitter Q&A.
Speaking about the drama coming to a close, Jeffrey said: ‘Knowing it’s ending is rough for those of us that have been around a minute. Really is a second family.
‘Going to be difficult to wrap [my] head around. But? Very lucky to have had this time together. And [the] next 30 eps are gonna be special.’
The Walking Dead is due to come to an end with its eleventh season. A Daryl spin-off has also been confirmed, with Norman Reedus set to reprise his role with Melissa McBride.
Season 11 will consist of 24 episodes. The first half is expected to air in late 2021, with the second half coming in 2022.
Meanwhile, fans don’t have to wait long for the show to return. A total of 16 episodes for the programme’s tenth season were released between October 2019 and October 2020.
It was then confirmed that six more would air after production was halted due to the coronavirus pandemic.
The new episodes will arrive in March, with the official synopsis stating that the survivors are ‘trying to pick themselves up by their bootstraps following the destruction the Whisperers left in their wake.
‘The years of struggle weigh upon them as past traumas surface, exposing their more vulnerable sides.’
It comes after Jeffrey posted a chilling first look at Negan in season 11. The actor shared a picture showing the villain with his signature weapon Lucille – the infamous baseball bat wrapped in barbed wire.
New episodes of The Walking Dead are due to premiere on March 1 on FOX in the UK.
