Part 3 of season 11 of The Walking Dead, the concluding part of the long-running horror series, will premiere very soon.
A new video from San Diego Comic-Con provided us with a specific release date for episode 17 (and beyond), which you can see below. That implies the entire course for the season’s third act is laid out before us.
The Walking Dead Season 11 Return Date: When Is Episode 17 Airing?
On October 2nd, AMC and AMC Plus will telecast episode 17 of season 11 of The Walking Dead. Time zone differences mean that the UK release date is Monday, October 3 for Disney Plus.
The Walking Dead Season 11 Part 3 Cast: Who’s in It?
Regulars from Alexandria, Oceanside, and Hilltop will return for the series finale to fight their largest war yet in this zombie-filled world.
The cast includes Norman Reedus (Daryl), Melissa McBride (Carol), Khary Payton (Ezekiel), Jeffrey Dean Morgan (Negan), Christian Serratos (Rosita), Seth Gilliam (Father Gabriel Stokes), Nadia Hilker (Magna), Cassidy McClincy (Lydia), Eleanor Matsuura (Yumiko), and Mercer (Nadia Hilker) (Michael James Shaw).
Then we have ruler Lance Hornsby (Josh Hamilton) who we’ll get on to in a minute.
Finally, Lauren Cohan, who plays Maggie, has returned after a long absence. When asked about her return to New York Comic Con, Cohan said it seemed “totally strange” (via The Hollywood Reporter).
“It’s comfortingly familiar. It stirs up a lot of feelings inside of me. Intense feelings of profundity are evoked in me. This Comic Con and its attendees feel like family to me, and I cherish my time spent with them.”
Even though Maggie has changed since she left, there was still some tension to resolve, what with the rehabilitated cold-blooded killer Negan now being a prominent part of the gang.
Which isn’t going to be easy for Maggie to just get over, as he ruthlessly murdered her love Glen in front of her in a very, very gruesome and gory method.
With their upcoming collaboration on the spinoff series Isle of the Dead, they have some significant amends to make, and it all begins here.
Yumiko actress Eleanor Matsuura shared her feelings on the series finale with us.
She told Digital Spy, “I hope that they feel that it’s a nice ending.” “I believe they will be content with Yumiko’s conclusion. Sure, I’ll go along with that. Wherever Yumiko goes, her fans will be pleased.
“I do believe for the show as a whole, sure it’s a major chapter ending, but as you said, there are so many other doors that we already know that are open, with all the spinoffs that are happening. The Walking Dead may be coming to an end, but I see this as a springboard for the various spinoffs now in the works.
“It might not please everyone right away, but I think in the long run everyone will be happy with the outcome. Because the conclusion will occur in a different offshoot. That’s the only way I can put it. My apologies if that was overly obtuse.”
The Walking Dead Season 11 Part 3 Spoilers: What Will Happen?
At the end of section B, things were not looking bright for a number of people. Control of the three major survivor sites—Alexandria, Hilltop, and now Oceanside—had consolidated in the hands of Lance Hornsby, while his plans for this power were unclear.
Although he is a Commonwealth member, it is not clear if he was acting independently toward Governor Milton or is following orders. However, they have put Maggie, Daryl, Aaron, and Gabriel on their hit list because they have caused trouble for the dominant human group.
The latter third of the season is packed with cliffhangers, such as when Carol, Aaron, and Connie become stuck in a storm and when Judith and Gracie get stranded in a leaking basement.
The Walking Dead Season 11 Part 3 Trailer: When Can I Watch?
A trailer for the series finale was released at San Diego Comic-Con, and its title, “Finish the Fight,” is ominous. As a result, we now know when the show will premiere again.
The new footage reveals that the “clever zombies” first seen in a post-credits sequence in The Walking Dead: World Beyond had spread all the way from Europe to the American South.
You have to wonder, how savvy are these zombies. If they can open doors and scale walls, they certainly won’t help Daryl, Carol, Ezekiel, Maggie, Negan, or their allies in any way!
