AMC renews its post-apocalyptic drama for an 11th season. 

The news was announced by the network on Saturday. 

In more The Walking Dead news, AMC also confirmed that Lauren Cohan will return as a series regular in the new season.

The Walking Dead burst out of the gate 10 years ago as a genre show that had all the character depth of a top-tier prestige drama,” AMC Studios president Sarah Barnett in a statement said. “And now 10 years later — led by the brilliant Angela Kang and fueled by one of the most consistently talented casts in television — this phenomenon is flourishing creatively, with critics and audiences embracing its reset. We’re delighted to welcome back Lauren Cohan, she has meant so much to this show and its passionate, global fanbase, who are in for a fantastic ride over the coming months.”

Showrunner Angela Kang added of Cohan’s Maggie Greene return in season 11: “It’s worked out and we couldn’t be more thrilled. I think [Maggie] is a really compelling character. And Lauren is such a compelling actress.”
