Robert Kirkman, creator of the comic book 'Walking Dead' believes that AMC could continue its story past where the comics ended.
The Walking Dead is now in its tenth season, and though it's certainly had its highs and lows, the zombie series remains a reliable hit for AMC.
Its more recent seasons have even been some of the show's best received, with The Walking Dead essentially reinventing itself in season 9 following a six-year time jump. Additionally, AMC is expanding their Walking Dead universe, adding another spinoff series as well as movies, according to reports by Screenrant.
While AMC's The Walking Dead universe continues to grow, Kirkman's long-running comic book series came to an end last year with issue #193.
The Walking Dead comics' final issue is set 25 years after the death of Rick Grimes and explores the world Rick gave his life to create.
Most significantly, the issue sees Carl married to Sophia and raising their daughter, but it also also checks in with various other characters. Maggie, for example, goes on to become The Commonwealth's new president, while Michonne returns to law and become a judge.
The ending of The Walking Dead comics implies quite a bit about what's happened during the preceding 25 years, not to mention setting up what could come next, and it's this material that Kirkman believes The Walking Dead TV show could potentially explore.
