It’s been almost a decade since the first season of The Walking Dead was released, offering a beautiful story filled with post-apocalyptic horror elements.
The main focus of the series is a cast of people who are forced to fight for their life and well-being in the aftermath of a zombie apocalypse. As the title infers, the main threat is represented by the walking dead, who are mindless zombies that roam the world.
As governments and authorities have fallen, the group must also face rival survivor groups that have their morals and rules. The star-studded cast includes names like Andrew Lincoln (left the series during season 9), Norman Reedus, Steven Yeun, Mellisa McBride, Lauren Cohan, and Danai Gurira.
The series is inspired by the comic of the same name, written by Frank Darabont. Darabont was also the showrunner for the first season but left due to a creative conflict between him and AMC.
Could The Walking Dead TV Series Shut Down?
A large number of fans have been attracted by the series, and an enormous franchise has evolved, including several video games, upcoming spinoff films, and a companion series known as Fear The Walking Dead.
As in the case of any other long-running series, a few problems have started to surface. Season 7 and 8 received poor reviews from fans and critics, and season 9, which has been deemed to be better, generated the lowest ratings in the history of the show.
AMC has confirmed that a new season will arrive in 2020, but some fans wonder if it will be the last one since the show has lost a lot of steam.
The Walking Dead Season 10 is being aired at this point, and it appears to be quite successful, but many voices claim that AMC has lost its interest since the fame has started to fade. In a way, it would be nice if the series ends before it falls too low, but a disappointing finale would be a significant blow after years of word-building. Only time will tell what will happen.
