“The Walking Dead” wrapped up filming on the final season on Wednesday with many from the cast and crew saying goodbye to the long running series…
“The Walking Dead” will come to an end later this year but the cast and crew said their final goodbyes during the last day of filming on Wednesday.
The long-running horror series based on comic books by Robert Kirkman has remained a massive hit for AMC ever since the show first debuted back in 2010. Very few cast members remain from that first season but plenty of familiar faces have been round the show throughout the 11 season run.
In a parting video, Greg Nicotero, who started out doing makeup and effects for the series before eventually becoming a director and executive producer, stood alongside Norman Reedus one last time as they both prepared to say goodbye to the show.
Reedus also penned his own tribute after filming wrapped on Wednesday as he says goodbye to the series that made hime a household name after he debuted as Daryl Dixon all the way back in season 1.
Of course, Reedus isn’t done with “The Walking Dead” universe because he’s already signed on to return and star alongside Melissa McBride in a spinoff series that will center around their characters Daryl and Carol.
Showrunner Angela Kang also posted her own tribute to the series after she started working on the show as a writer back in season 2 before eventually graduating into her current role back in 2018. Kang is also sticking around “The Walking Dead” with plans to serve as the showrunner for the series starring Reedus and McBride.
While the main series will be coming to an end later this year, “The Walking Dead” universe only grows larger with AMC already committing to the series featuring Reedus and McBride as well as Lauren Cohan and Jeffrey Dean Morgan returning for the series “Isle of the Dead,” which will carry on the story of their characters Maggie and Negan in New York City.
There’s also an anthology show on the way called “Tales of the Walking Dead,” which will feature new and returning characters in an ongoing series not to mention “Fear the Walking Dead,” which is still going strong on AMC after seven seasons.
