The final season of AMC's The Walking Dead will premiere on August 22 this year.
The finale of the ongoing 10th season of the zombie-horror came out on Sunday, and the makers of the show shared the premiere date of the upcoming season in a teaser released on AMC.
In a statement to Variety, showrunner Angela Kang said, "Coming off of the six additional episodes for Season 10, which focused on smaller, character-driven stories, we're excited to kick off Season 11 bigger than ever."
"The stakes will be high: we'll see more zombies; tons of action; intriguing new stories; never-before-seen locations and our groups together in one community for the first time, trying to rebuild what the Whisperers took from them," she added.
The upcoming season 11 will launch with eight episodes and will feature a total of 24 episodes.
The Walking Dead, which is based on the Image Comics series by Robert Kirkman, Tony Moore and Charlie Adlard, debuted on AMC in 2010. The show centres on the survivors of a zombie apocalypse and the communities they form, as well as the shifting alliances those tribes reach with each other.
It stars actors Norman Reedus, Melissa McBride, Lauren Cohan, Josh McDermitt, Christian Serratos, Jeffrey Dean Morgan, Seth Gilliam, Ross Marquand, Khary Payton and Cooper Andrews.
The massive success of the show led to spin-offs such as Fear the Walking Dead (which was renewed for season 7), and the two-season limited series The Walking Dead: World Beyond, with other spin-offs and tie-in films also in the works.
