11 seasons and 177 episodes later, AMC’s zombie drama series ‘The Walking Dead’ concluded on November 20. The show had lost a lot of its popularity but the final season, and particularly the finale episode (titled “Rest in Peace”) did see a bump in ratings. Jeffrey Dean Morgan debuted in the show’s sixth season as the villainous leader of the Saviors who sees a redemption arc in the later seasons. He recently revealed that he broke both his feet while filming the final season.
While speaking to Insider, Morgan said, “I think I had, honestly, just shoes that weren’t very good and just jumping, landing a few times. It started off as kind of nothing, a hairline fracture. And then it got worse. The bones in my heel aren’t smooth anymore. I was gonna have surgery in between the series and the new show [Dead City]. And I had like three months and I went to Spain to do a commercial. And I had a… [hernia], that happened to me. So I had to have surgery on that, and I’m like, ‘F**k it. My foot’s gonna have to survive.'”
Meanwhile, ‘The Walking Dead’ Season 11 has received mostly positive reviews. It has scored 81 per cent on Rotten Tomatoes, a popular review aggregation site. The critical consensus reads, “While the sense of finality is diminished by the promise of even more spinoffs, The Walking Dead’s eleventh conclusion is a solid enough conclusion to an epic tale of zombies that never had a clear offramp to begin with.”
