The Walking Dead Officially Back in Production, Set Photo Released
The Walking Dead is officially back in production for the first time since November of 2019. The series wrapped its tenth season last year and was scheduled to get back to work for Season 11 back in April of 2020 but was unable to assemble the cast and crew in Georgia due to the global pandemic. Now, with new safety measures in place and information about how to keep everyone's health at the forefront of procedures, the cast and crew are at work on the bridge episodes which are being added to Season 10 and will air in the beginning of 2021.
Not only did Norman Reedus share photos of himself suited up as Daryl Dixon for work on the six additional episodes which will be shot over the next three or so months but The Walking Dead's official accounts shared an update from the Georgia set. "Lights, camera, WALKERS!," the official The Walking Dead account tweeted. "#TWD is back in production."

Negan actor Jeffrey Dean Morgan also shared a photo, celebrating the return to work and possible final year of playing the iconic villain. "10 years in the bag," he wrote. "Here's to another 10. Or one! TWD kicked off filming 11 yesterday... it's gonna be special. Big love to everyone involved, past, present, future."
