Horror fans were dealt a blow last year after AMC confirmed The Walking Dead would be coming to a close after more than a decade. Season 11 is going to be the very last outing of the drama. Fans are keen to know when the series will be starting to shoot and Express.co.uk takes a look.

When does filming start on The Walking Dead series 11?

Filming on the new series of The Walking Dead has finally started after one of the programme-makers confirmed the news on social media.

Producer Kevin Deiboldt posted an update on Twitter to his followers: “Kudos to our crew and cast (a**kickers, the lot of ‘em!) on the long-awaited start of filming for S11.

“A full (effed up) year in the works, we truly hope it’s worth the wait. #TWD #TheWalkingDead [sic].”

Deiboldt made the announcement on February 8, so filming is now very much underway.

Depending on the state of the coronavirus pandemic in Georgia – where The Walking Dead set is based – could influence when season 11 will premiere.

However, the final outing is expected to start airing in the autumn as part of AMC usual fall schedule.

Like the majority of seasons of The Walking Dead, the 11th outing is expected to be split into two blocks with a hiatus in the middle.

Filming is likely to continue until late 2021 with the latter half of season 11 airing in 2022.

Again, all of this will depend on whether the set needs to be shut down for any reason due to the health crisis but for the moment it looks as though it’s business as usual.

Even though The Walking Dead is going to be finishing soon, AMC confirmed season 10 had been expanded with six bonus episodes.

These would be more character-focused episodes looking deeper at some of the show’s fan-favourites and less about the action/

Among the instalments would be one focusing on antagonist Negan (played by Jeffrey Dean Morgan) and his backstory.

The episodes also marked the first ones after The Walking Dead resumed production in 2020 following a shutdown.

They were shot in line with coronavirus restrictions in place with challenges for the cast and crew as they adjusted to the new norms.

AMC has teased the six new episodes with a cryptic trailer and voiceovers from each of the major characters getting their own story.

The episodes will come after the official season 10 finale with Beta (Ryan Hurst) trying to raze Alexandria to the ground.

The Walking Dead’s showrunner Angela Kang previously opened up about the extra episodes, telling The Walking Dead Universe Preview Special as reported by Comicbook.com: “The episodes are all designed to be filmed safely during this pandemic that we’re in.

“There’s sort of an anthological feel to some of them. They’re really deep dives into our characters, which I hope people enjoy.

“We’ve been enjoying working on something that’s a little bit different from what we were doing in the main part of season 10.”

Kang added: “We just get to feature different people and tell these little stories that all kind of add up to a picture of what our survivors are going through, and that will lead us into season 11 eventually.”

The Walking Dead season 10 will return to AMC on February 28 and Fox UK on March 1
