It might be hard to believe, but The Walking Dead is coming to an end after 11 seasons. The popular AMC series has become a staple for the network over the past 12 years, and fans of the zombie genre are so sad to see it go. Of course, the series has multiple spinoffs and more on the way, but will they capture the magic of the original show? We’re hopeful!
Over the years, The Walking Dead has told compelling stories, followed complex characters, and of course, has seen so many heartbreaking deaths. Many main actors have departed, such as Andrew Lincoln and Danai Gurira, leaving only Norman Reedus and Melissa McBride as the two actors still around from season 1.
All good things must come to an end, and some might argue The Walking Dead has stuck around longer than it should’ve. If you have yet to check out the final season, you’re probably curious when it’ll arrive on Netflix. The first 10 seasons are available to stream on the platform, but considering season 11 is still airing, it makes sense why it’s not on Netflix yet.
When does The Walking Dead end?
The Walking Dead season 11 comes to a close this month, with Episode 24 marking the season and series finale. Don’t miss “Rest in Peace” directed by Greg Nicotero when it hits AMC on Sunday, Nov. 20, 2022.
When will The Walking Dead season 11 be on Netflix?
So now that we know The Walking Dead ends at the end of the month, the million-dollar question is when the final season will be released on Netflix. If you’ve been holding out hope that you can watch season 11 on the streamer sometime this year, we’re sad to say we don’t think that’ll be the case. It’s more than likely The Walking Dead season 11 will hit Netflix sometime in 2023.
The Walking Dead season 10 came to a close on April 4, 2021, and it took a little over three months for it to arrive on Netflix. The tenth season was added to the streamer’s library on July 26, 2021. If we can expect a similar release pattern for season 11, we’ll see it on Netflix in early 2023.
But because Netflix has not confirmed anything yet, take this prediction with a grain of salt. The Walking Dead season 9 took about five months after its finale aired on AMC for it to be added to Netflix. The same happened with season 8.
We’ll be sure to update you once the streamer shares the official release date. In the meantime, The Walking Dead season 11 airs new episodes every Sunday night on AMC.
