I will admit that as a longtime Caryler I am somehow, even after all these years, a little intrigued by the prospect of a Carol and Daryl standalone. But this plan still feels like confirmation that years’ worth of characters and story developments have painted the original Walking Dead into an untenable corner. For years, no matter what writers have tried, viewers have been dropping like flies. … [Read more...] about What Finally Killed ‘The Walking Dead’?

“The Walking Dead” originally premiered on Halloween night in 2010 and was, at the time, the highest-rated cable series launch of all time. It remains the most-watched series in cable history. The network notes it was the first cable series to become the No. 1 show in all of television, including broadcast. It held that rank for five consecutive years and continues to hold viewership records in Season 10. … [Read more...] about ‘The Walking Dead’ to end after expanded Season 11, AMC announces new spinoffs
