Not quite. The show may be ending, but AMC has announced that at least two of its most popular characters will continue in their own spin-off series. The currently untitled show will star Norman Reedus as the crossbow-wielding zombie killer Daryl Dixon, and Melissa McBride as the deceptively strong and ruthless Carol Peletier. The series will begin shooting in early 2023. There are no details yet on the exact premise of this spin-off, nor if any other Walking Dead cast members will join up.

What about all the other Walking Dead spin-offs?

AMC has a ton of Walking Dead series coming up. Season 6 of the first spin-off series, Fear The Walking Dead, has recently concluded, and season 7 will begin airing in 2022. The second spin-off series, The Walking Dead: World Beyond has also started. It already has a commitment to two 10 episode seasons and has completed the first season.
