The Walking Dead Will Not Be Ending Soon

Given the ratings juggernaut that it is, AMC clearly has no interest in ending The Walking Dead. We already know that we’ll be getting an eighth season and with Robert Kirkman still writing the comic book that it’s based on, we can assume it will continue on longer after that as well. In fact, showrunner Scott Gimple recently revealed that not only is there no end in sight, but they don’t even have a planned conclusion yet.

Gimple said “No, there’s no communication whatsoever about the ending, they have no approval over what happens in the comic. Scott Gimple is an avid reader of the comic, and prefers to experience the comic book as a reader, so he gets the advance issues as they’re published, but he doesn’t read scripts. He gets mad at me if I give him any kind of indication as to what’s coming, because he doesn’t like spoilers. So, they’re kind of a hundred percent in the dark, which I guess is pretty remarkable, and I would probably say it’s a testament to the trust that AMC has in me. I mean, I guess to a certain extent, at this point, the comic book is kind of a workshop of future seasons of the show, and it’s fun to think that I can just completely torpedo the story if I wanted to.

Whatever the ending may be, it’s just good to know that for the time being, The Walking Dead isn’t going anywhere and we have a lot more of Rick, Negan, Lucille, Daryl and everyone else to look forward to.
