THE Walking Dead left fans crushed when it announced that season 11 would be its last earlier this week.
AMC revealed that the beloved show would end with a supersized 24-episode series to be aired over the span of the next two years – with 12 in 2021, and the rest in 2022.

It isn't all doom and gloom though, as the broadcaster confirmed that the saga will continue in the form of two new shows.
One focuses on the characters Daryl Dixon (Norman Reedus) and Carol Peletier (Melissa McBride), both long-serving characters beloved by fans.
The second, Tales of the Walking Dead, is an anthology series that the network said may or may not shed new light on the backstories of familiar characters.
This is on top of the likes of Fear The Walking Dead and the upcoming The Walking Dead: World Beyond.
However, apparently this wasn't enough for fans, who began campaigning for a separate spin-off show following Negan, played by Jeffrey Dean-Morgan.
One keen Twitter user rallied fans, posting: "Y'all think we can all collectively bully The Walking Dead into giving us a Negan spin off? I think so. Let's light them mentions up."
Suffice to say it didn't take long for fellow fans to oblige.
"I love this show but a Carol and Daryl spinoff is not it. Give Negan a spin-off," one user echoed.

"Can we just get a Jeffrey Dean Morgan Negan spin-off? That's the one we need and deserve. He was the SAVIOR of the series after all," a second begged.
A third exclaimed: "Where's the Negan spin-off?!"
While a fourth quipped: "To the a**hat that shelved the Negan spinoff," alongside a menacing clip of Negan clutching his baseball bat Lucille.
The furore comes after the trailer for the season 10 finale hinted at a prominent character's death.
The Walking Dead's season 10 finale will air as a special episode on Monday, October 5 on FOX in the UK and previous episodes are available to stream on NOW TV.
In the US, the season 10 finale will air on Sunday, October 4 at 9pm on AMC.
Fear the Walking Dead will return later this year on AMC in the US and on AMC UK in the UK.
