The Walking Dead season 11 is currently on hiatus, but when can the show’s fans expect new episodes of the veteran AMC series to return?
The Walking Dead made its much-anticipated return to TV screens back in the summer of 2021 with eight brand new episodes when it launched its final season in typically undead and shocking fashion.
The long-running AMC zombie drama has been on the air for over a decade now, but in 2020 it was revealed that it would be taking its final bow with an extended bumper-length eleventh and final season consisting of a whopping 24 episodes.
All is not lost for fans of the franchise as the TWD Universe will continue to grow via its two ongoing spin-offs (one a full series, the other a two-season miniseries) and the two new spin-offs set to take it into the future.
The show has now embarked on a somewhat lengthy hiatus, its second of two midseason hiatuses. But its return, with the third part of its eleventh season will come. When can fans expect the show’s third midseason premiere to air?
When is The Walking Dead season 11 part 3 released?
The Walking Dead season 11 returns to AMC on Sunday, October 2, 2022. After much anticipation for the third and final installment of the season, AMC confirmed the show’s return date at its final San Diego Comic-Con panel.
The show’s midseason replacement, its spin-off Fear The Walking Dead, completed its seventh season back in June. While many initially hoped that would make the main show’s return in the summer a possibility, a teaser for the returning episodes confirmed that the show would return in fall ahead of the Comic-Con announcement.
The final season is split into three installments. Each one of those installments will consist of eight episodes. The first of those wrapped its run back in October, the second has now done the same in April, and the third and final installment is coming in October.
