Filming is currently underway on the eleventh season of The Walking Dead, and while it will bring the main show to its conclusion, AMC still has big plans for the franchise. Fear the Walking Dead continues, with a second and final season of The Walking Dead: World Beyond still to come, along with the Rick Grimes movie(s), a new Daryl & Carol spinoff series and episodic anthology show entitled Tales of the Walking Dead. It was also revealed last year by AMC’s Walking Dead supremo Scott Gimple that an animated series is also under consideration.
