The Walking Dead: Still at least 5 possible seasons for the series, does it need a reboot?
Season 7 of The Walking Dead has just ended but the series still has some great days ahead of it according to Scott Gimple. But could it really last another 20 years?
The last episode of the seventh season of the zombie show was broadcast on Sunday on AMC and after having given you our balance of season 7 of The Walking Dead , we now propose to take a little interest in the future of the series. Not long ago, the showrunner Scott Gimple said that he saw the series well continue for several years to reach 20 years of broadcast. “It’s been 26 or 27 years since The Simpsons is broadcast so if it’s a challenge, okay, I’m ready to take it up . ” Moreover the creator of the franchise Robert Kirkman had already explained that it took them 6 seasons to catch up the hundredth number of the comics on which is based the series, It would not take them six years to arrive at No. 200. The The Walking Dead series has already enough to make 6 new seasons to extend it to a season 12 , and there will probably still be a lot to say since the comics are always faster than the series.
In short, The Walking Dead has a path in front of it and it could remain on our small screens for many years, but will the audience follow? Despite audiences more than good, the series continues to lose viewers and the last episode was no exception as it recorded its lowest audience for a final in 5 years . With 11.31 million fans in front of their TV, including 5.7% of 18-49 years, the episode was far from the 6.9% of the last episode of season 6 and its 14.19 million curious. But these figures remain high and are not synonymous with cancellation, so it is mainly on the bottom that we will look. It is already several seasons that the series presents us the same repetitive pattern that begins to weary a lot of fans.
Scott Gimple persists in proposing two different halves of seasons and reinventing every eight episodes, sometimes leaving a feeling of global incoherence throughout the season. Would not it be time to change things a little, shake those concepts and renew themselves more than all eight episodes to re-loyalty an audience that is getting tired? We would rather say yes, especially because Season 7 left us a feeling of jerky rhythm, sometimes fast, sometimes too slow. The Walking Dead has many constraints, the first being to be faithful to the original media while surprising the fans who read the comics, and the bet has always been raised. But continue on this path by keeping the “surprises” And actually pushing the action only in certain episodes remains risky, especially if the series continues for more than five years. A reboot, not on the bottom, but on the form, could therefore do him good and revive the interest of his many fans, including us. In any case it is hoped that the sequel will surprise us and to wait until then, you were already told what would happen in season 8 of The Walking Dead . And you what do you think ?
