The Walking Dead is ending with Season 11, but AMC announced that Daryl and Carol would be getting a spinoff series. As a result, fans are going berserk over the news. On Wednesday, the network revealed that it is bringing the flagship horror series to a close. Still, a whole new story will begin, following the fan-favorite characters played by Norman Reedus and Melissa McBride. The new show is currently scheduled to launch in 2023.
In a statement shared by EW, Reedus said, "I feel incredibly honored to be a part of The Walking Dead, This show changed my life and career and everyone involved has truly been a family for me over the last decade. I'm thankful for AMC's love and support and know there's so much more story to tell and so much more to bring the best fans in the world. Daryl's relationship with Carol has always been my favorite relationship on the show (sorry Rick). I love the way these characters interact and relate to each other on so many levels and can't wait to see where their ride goes from here." Scroll down to see what fans are saying on social media about the forthcoming Daryl and Carol series.

Can’t wait!! This has been a long time coming. The show runners know what they are doing with bringing us the content that has been asked for repeatedly. There is no show without Carol and Daryl. @angelakang even said they are the heart of the show. #Caryl.— Katie (@phalanges1121) September 9, 2020

My most favorite character in TWD, the hottest guy! Oh god dang i want to be Carol— ELLENA KAVARERA (@iniellena) September 9, 2020
Yes, those two are soulmates and are meant to be. Can't wait to see the mysterious aspects they're talking about.— carol riedel (@ninewood) September 9, 2020
Yup. That’s why I think this spinoff could be so good. I just really don’t want them to start a relationship. If they’ve gone this far as super close friends they can stay that way— riii (@ty_Mcnizzle) September 9, 2020
