The Walking Dead final series: How will the series end? Fans discuss theories
The Walking Dead has just returned to screens following a mid-season break and fans were excited to see the new episodes on AMC. The main man Rick Grimes (played by Andrew Lincoln) left in an earlier series after being badly injured in an explosion. Fans have taken to Reddit to discuss how the final few episodes will conclude.
The show is expected to go on for another two series, with season 12 being the final one.
Three spin-off films focusing on Rick Grimes will also be released before the final TV series airs.
Fans believe Rick may come back to the TV series depending on how the three films pan out.
Alexkiltro said: “I think it will be determined by how the movie plays out (and performs). “However, I think the endgame should play around with the idea of Rick Grimes reuniting with the main group at last, in a new world that’s finally rebuilding civilisation, fulfilling Carl’s dream and bringing peace to Rick’s life.”

This sounds like the perfect ending for the series but other fans believe it may not end with smiles.
Sebrebc said: “I think the final episode will be the final Grimes movie. The last TV episode will either be the remaining core traveling to where Rick is or Rick traveling back to Alexandria to get them. Most likely the core going to him.
“We will get the reunion in the final movie, be it the second or third. Depending on the success of the first one.
“I believe Andrew when he said he won’t return to the show, because I believe the show will go to him.”
They also said how the core survivors will reunite with Rick in the final movie.
They added: “If the first one isn’t successful they will only make one more that will act as a finale for the series.
“If it’s successful they will stick to the trilogy, with the third one working as the series finale.
“That movie will end with a large time jump showing an adult Judith (Cailey Fleming), similar to how the comics ended.”

There has been talk of a final series focussing on the next generation of survivors, including the children of the main cast members.
A new spin-off series, called A World Beyond, is also planned to air in April and follows the next generation.
Fans are still wondering whether some of the original comic book characters will come in to the TV series, including young Clementine.
The new Rick Grimes films will hopefully pick up from where we left off in the series, with a severely injured Rick being flown to an unknown location in a helicopter.

The films are to be set six years after his disappearance and he does not seem to have returned to Alexandria in this time.
This suggests he has been taken to a location too far away for him to backtrack from.
There is also a chance, due to his severe injuries, he has become delusional and is unable to remember much of what happened before he blew up the bridge full of walkers to save his friends.
Fans are likely to have a long time to wait before they find out what happens in the very last episode of the TV series.
