The Walking Dead was an integral part of the TV landscape for 12 years but which of its 11 seasons are the best, and which ones fell a little bit short?

The Walking Dead was a staple of television for over a decade. No amount of reiterating that can truly convey just how much of a TV veteran it became. It’s darn near impossible to remember a time when it wasn’t on our screens, and it still doesn’t feel right to think that it has ended. In a way, it still feels like we’re waiting on its next season to premiere.

But all good things must come to an end (even the already dead ones, it seems), and The Walking Dead is no different, as bowed out with its series finale in November 2022. Again, 11 seasons is a long time to be on the air, and TWD (along with its fans) has seen it all.

As with all TV shows, some seasons are better than others, and The Walking Dead unfortunately wasn’t immune to a little rot every now and again. Thankfully, the good vastly outweighs the bad as the show successfully managed to entertain a generation (or two) throughout its run.

With the show having taken its final bow (and an exciting new era beginning for the TWD Universe with new spinoffs The Walking Dead: Dead City, The Walking Dead: Daryl Dixon, and The Walking Dead: The Ones Who Live), let’s take a look back at its equally legendary run, and rank all of its seasons from worst to best.
