Final episode of The Walking Dead aired on November 20 on AMC+ and instantly breaks viewership record for the fledgling streamer. The 90-minute series finale episode is also the most watched on the platform since its launch in October 2020. It was streamed at that time on AMC+ and aired in the show’s customary Sunday 9 p.m. slot on AMC’s linear channel.
With fans eager to follow Rick Grimes’ journey through the zombie apocalypse, The Walking Dead quickly attracted a sizable audience after its 2010 debut. The Walking Dead has become one of the most popular television series of all time over the course of its run, with its season 4 to season 6 span garnering between 11 million and 17 million viewers, a remarkable achievement in the world of contemporary television.
The Walking Dead’s season finale attracted a sizable audience, which is a success for AMC’s efforts to grow the brand. Even said, viewership for The Walking Dead isn’t quite as high as it once was. The viewers that showed up for the finale might be more motivated to watch the anticipated spinoffs. Even with this strong base, The Walking Dead’s universe will need to keep evolving in order to attract new viewers to the brand with each new production.
The Walking Dead needs to deliver new worlds and stories that viewers can lose themselves in, and it appears that TWD’s executive team is fully aware of this. The three announced spinoffs of The Walking Dead centre on the series’ lead characters, but their new exploits will take them to all-new settings for the franchise, where they’ll meet a cast of fresh faces and encounter situations that weren’t covered in the primary series.
The Walking Dead: Daryl Dixon will take Daryl all the way to France, where he might run into the zombie cure that has been rumoured to have been developed there. Negan and Maggie will be on a mission through a walker-infested New York in The Walking Dead: Dead City. The Walking Dead should concentrate on introducing fresh imagery, actors, and settings after the three aforementioned spinoffs.
