Splitting the final season into two years, :yucky: Also mentions of possible Maggie and/or Negan centered spin-offs too. Just keep :deadhorse:  AMC. The anthology series is also about 5 or 6 years too late - that's what they should have done instead of FTWD as many mentioned in this thread and the other thread years ago.

It mentions potential spinoffs, but specifically says there is no indication of a Negan or Maggie-centered show.

You are correct, I misread that they were Maggie or Negan centric. Still the point remains, 4 confirmed spin off shows with Fear, the Young Adult show, the anthology series, and a Darryl and Carol show along with:

 More TWD shows are in various stages of discussion too,

Can't blame them.. It has been bringing in the ratings for years so they will ride until it don't ride no more.. :deadhorse: 

I'll watch the "new World"  at least the first season to see how it goes..

Gave Fear the same try.. and after one season had had enough of those characters and stopped watching.. Returned a couple season later, realized the writing was worse then Walking dead, and left for good.

I have no interest in a Daryl/Carol or any other Side Story spin-offs.

Agree it's too much.  The anthology series should have been the second show. 

Looking forward to the following spinoffs: 

CSI: Alexandria

How I Met Your Walker

Walker, Texas Zombie

Looking forward to them wrapping this story up.  Not interested in any of the spin-offs.  I'll watch Fear and finish up TWD.

Not that I dont appreciate the scenery that Lauren Cohan brings to the table but a Maggie spin off? Meh.

I kinda think its hilarious that she came crawling back after her horrible show on ABC predictably failed.

My guess is they threw some money at her  to come back after her new show failed to try and shore up the ratings free fall. It’s not like most tv shows don’t fail in their first season so her new show was hardly a guarantee to make it.

Most people only know her from TWD, but she was pretty up and coming at the time for genre tv. Did multiple episode stints on Supernatural, Chuck, Vampire Diaries...

I’d bet as cheap as AMC is that they didn’t throw anything at her. She’s not exactly in demand right now and not being on TWD has pretty much taken her out of the public eye.

I bailed on the show 2 years ago I think? After Rick bailed. Saw yesterday it was finally wrapping up (aside from multiple spin offs it appears). Kudos to those that stuck with it, hope it wraps better than Lost :D

Yeah, I can't imagine Cohan had much bargaining power. Is she one of the bigger stars of the show? I guess. But its an ensemble show with a huge cast and I dont think she's some beloved character. Reedus could probably hold their feet to the fire for a big raise if he wanted but pretty much anyone else is disposable.

Never understand why these actors leave a big show like this willingly.  I guess everyone thinks they're going to be the next Clooney or Anniston and just walk right into a huge movie career.

The ending of Lost is so far above the last few years of TWD it’s not even close. Even comparing the two annoys me because they aren’t anywhere close.

I think it’s pretty obvious, this isn’t Clooney leaving ER or Katherine Heigl leaving Grey’s Anatomy at the height of their popularity to spring to movies. IMO, this was actors realizing TWD is tanking and getting out before it goes totally down the drain and drags them down with it.

Cohen may not have any other options than to come back but I think it’s just as likely they wanted one of the popular characters back since the ratings continue to tank and there’s no way Rick is coming back (except in the supposed movies in development.) There are internet articles out there that Maggie coming back was planned all along, but that seems like spin to me. Edit: although how she just disappeared certainly left the door open to return.

Lol. Lost is still up there in my favorites and I didn’t mind the ending at all. Maybe not the coolest fade to black but damn, it never once got to the level of where TWD is right now. A Carol and Daryl spin off? Yeesh. TWD incorrectly thought we cared more about these dolts than a real show. Daryl killing Merle was one of the greatest moments. It’s OK for stars to die like in GOTs where you are in a very unsafe environment. Lost was character driven but it also wasn’t a zombie/bad guy filled place where people died right and left. TWD was and they effed that all up. Carol should have gotten eaten by a band of rednecks in wife beaters not been Benny Hill leading the idiots on wild goose chases through caverns they never found in 10 years even though it was 100 yards away.

I will watch till the end now that we know it’s ending but there’s GOTs rush to the end and then there’s TWDs turn into legitimately one of the goofiest shows ever.

Episode 2 of the Finale was better then the 1st part and does leave a good lead up to the next group.

Even though it has been used before, I enjoyed the Piped Piper replay.. Beta going out the way he did ( Dam Daryl! :eek: ) was a good way to end that battle.
as always some things were "Only these writers"..

Carol and her tag along have been wandering slowly through the herd for a few minutes and get attacked.
So how does Lydia, even in her mom's mask, find that exact spot in the herd and get there that quick?

Maggie and Mystery man somehow make it through the herd and came up the steps just in time to save Gabriel.

Not to mention, with all the lead up, to only have a bunch of Red Shirts go out was a little disappointing. 

Haven't had a chance to watch the new show yet so not sure if it is more of the same, worse then FTWD, or ......

I’m just glad the whisperer saga is over. It was pretty terrible.  Don’t really have any hopes for anything else being good but we’ll see

Yeah the walk through the herd was pretty dumb.  They used to have to cover completely with blood/guts... at least cover their face.  Now they just put on a jacket and walk through with the rest of their body (including the hands they used to smear on each other) were completely clean.  

Lydia catches up lickity-split.  

Another is how incredibly strong the walkers are when ripping flesh and limbs from a newly dead body (not rotted) but they can't managed to break a door glass.  They pulled the girl's leg off.  :lmao:

I like how they did Beta's fall.  He thought the walkers were embracing him, which in his mind they were and he was happy.  

Was good to see Maggie and the ninja and all, but they really needed to kill off one or two of the main cast.  Killing red shirts was pretty weak imo.

And the tease with Carol going to kill herself (yet again) would have been more shocking 6 years ago.  This time I actually wanted her to sacrifice herself with the herd.  I mean, I didn't really care anymore about her.  

I'll stay tuned to see what they're going to do next season.

Also the preacher just simply pulls out a shot gun out of thin air.  Why not put it in the hole the whisperers are knocking through the door? 

 

The maggie stuff I just cant even..................

 

I am on board to finish this out but no way in hell I am watching Fear or the new one.  I am tapping out of this crapfest.

So that's the end of Season 10?  For some reason I thought it had more episodes starting up this fall

The new series is a teenage melodrama, yuck.

I think there is a Season 11.  Although the ratings are lower than ever so I'm not sure what is happening.  I doubt they have Maggie just show up at the end for 5 minutes.  There was no finality to S10E16 as far as the series ending.

Alongside announcing an additional six episodes to be added to the tenth season, AMC stated that season 11 would not premiere in October 2020 as originally planned

Season 10 didn't get extended?  Anyone?

"The Walking Dead" season 10 is getting a bonus six episodes next year. 

Showrunner Angela Kang announced earlier this summer at San Diego Comic-Con that the series will get six "extra" episodes in season 10, which will air in early 2021.

"We will not be airing season 11 episodes this year as we normally would in October, but we're excited to announce an extended season 10 and there will be six extra episodes to follow the finale," said Kang. 

"There are things that are going on with our people and their communities and so there are things that start to tie those into what will become the major story in season 11,

Did I miss an episode or something?  Maggie just back with no explanation?  With some ninja?

I dont even remember why the heard was surrounding that building, but I did see the last episode like 4 or 5 months back.

End of "Finale" part 1 had Maggie digging up a box that had a note telling her about all that had happened, and presumably the plan to end it all at the hospital. No idea who Ninja guy is.. could be from the Group she disappeared with or :shrug: 

As mentioned above, with Covid delaying everything, they decided to add 6 episodes to Season 10 to be shown in the Spring, and then Season 11 will be the last season of TWD.

The episode was awful, but I’ll finish as well. Too much invested. Hey, let’s not shoot the whisperer with the grenade. Did they not watch Hardhomme? They peak a head through shoot it with the 4 bows pointed at the hole. Also, they had their own explosives. That would have been a good time to throw one on the other side or have some ready in the stairwell.

Its like the writers are not even trying.  Maggie shows up after being gone years(?) and saves them.  Two things here. The writers didnt even do a throwaway line of how she got into the hospital something like "Hey we came in through the sewer" and when the group saw maggie the preacher was like whats up instead of "where the eff have you been and how did you get here"?  Its so bizarre how bad the writing is.

 

They kept making a point to show the overhead shot of how many zombies were surrounding the hospital but the group had no problems finding each other or the Whisperers in the chaos.  How did the whisperers know where the group was in the hospital?  Its all so stupid.  I mean like I said at least drop some throwaway lines to try and address some of the insane plot holes

They knew where the group was because the killed them with some arrows and they spotted the priest. The people inside weren’t really hiding well. That I can understand. Also, Maggie showing up there at the exact right time was goofy, but I’m pretty sure at that point they had started the pied piper thing so the hospital was pretty clear of zombies, no need to go into a sewer. Actually, Maggie showing up there was very easy to explain. She and her ninja saved Aaron and the other guy, so Maggie and ninja knew exactly where to go. They just didn’t show Aaron at the end.

It was an awful episode, but some of your issues were easily explained.

Didn't take long.   The bowling ball.....:lmao:  That takes the cake.

4 teens take off for a walk from Omaha to New York.  Despite their horrible day packs, one kid has an old suitcase strapped to his back, the skinny 100lb or so girl finds an old bowling ball and bag and decides that's something she wants to carry across the country.  lol  

This is a much kinder and gentler story, made for the kids is the only reason I can think of.  They don't kill any zombies, they can't bring themselves to do it, rather, they trick and trap the few the come across Scooby Do style.  When they finally have to move past a horde they do so by sneaking at night hidden by a bunch of smoke from burning tires.  Yes, a fire of burning tires have been burning for decades apparently,  but somehow all this smoke isn't toxic to any of the teens at all, they just walk right through it.  :lmao:

I used to :rolleyes: at the bad gas people on here and wonder why they would watch a show that they hated so much. Now I get it.

It's like a test of wills between the writers and myself.  I'm so "pot committed" at this point I just refuse to give up.

I liked the opening episode of FTWD.  Morgan turning a new leaf.  New twist with Morgan being half-dead, or at least smelling like it, and being able to walk right by walkers.  It'll all change when they feature some of the other members of the group in episodes, I'm sure.  They should have kept the bounty hunter around a few more episodes, though.  He had potential.

The new one needs to get back to the New World order running things..
The end of episode 1 shows the town, and the people in it, destroyed.. Then nothing about why in episode 2.

That group is why I am giving this a chance.

Not Kids learning how to kill empties.... or some guy's torment of his past, due to coming out to his Dad. :rolleyes:
