AMC announced Saturday that the successful post-apocalyptic drama series will be renewed for the 11th season and add to that, actress Lauren Cohan who played Maggie Greene will return as a series regular.
The Walking Dead (2010- ) series is based on an Image Comics-published comic book series written by Robert Kirkman. It’s about a traveling group of survivors who are searching for a safe and secure home while being in the middle of a zombie apocalypse.
“The Walking Dead burst out of the gate 10 years ago as a genre show that had all the character depth of a top-tier prestige drama […] And now 10 years later — led by the brilliant Angela Kang and fueled by one of the most consistently talented casts in television — this phenomenon is flourishing creatively, with critics and audiences embracing its reset. We’re delighted to welcome back Lauren Cohan, she has meant so much to this show and its passionate, global fanbase, who are in for a fantastic ride over the coming months,” commented Sarah Barnett, President of AMC Networks Entertainment Group & AMC Studios.
The series is executive produced by Scott M. Gimple, Kang, Kirkman, Gale Anne Hurd, Dave Alpert, Greg Nicotero, Joseph Incaprera, and Denise Huth, with the starring cast of Norman Reedus, Melissa McBride, Danai Gurira, Josh McDermitt, Christian Serratos, Jeffrey Dean Morgan, Ross Marquand, Khary Payton, Seth Gilliam, Avi Nash, Callan McAuliffe, Cooper Andrews, Eleanor Matsuura, Nadia Hilker, Cailey Fleming, Samantha Morton, Ryan Hurst, Cassady McClincy and Lauren Ridloff.’
The 10th Season has its premiere on October 6th, 2019.
