A new The Walking Dead The museum exhibit will commemorate the show and feature zombie props, costumes, makeup, and more. The Walking Dead first premiered on AMC in 2010, quickly gaining a passionate following as viewers tuned in to follow a tight-knit group of survivors struggling to adapt to life in a zombie apocalypse. The success of The Walking Dead led to the creation of several other spin-off shows, Fear the living dead and The Walking Dead: World Beyondboth of which have developed strong followers in their own right.
Now on its final season 11, The Walking Dead promises to wrap up the stories of a number of main characters, while also setting up new spin-off shows. Daryl (Norman Reedus) and Carol (Melissa McBride), the show’s two longest surviving cast members, who were introduced in Season 1, are set to get their own spinoff show sometime in 2023. Likewise, Maggie ( Lauren Cohan) and Negan (Jeffrey Dean Morgan) are also set to appear in their own spin-off, titled Isle of the Deadwhich will also premiere in 2023.
According to a new announcement from Moving Image Museum At New York, The Walking Dead will have its own exhibition on the site, dubbed “Living with The Walking Dead. The exhibit, which is slated to arrive in June and run through the end of the year, will feature props and costumes from the show, in addition to zombie makeup, storyboards, scripts, concept art, etc. museum, this new exhibit is designed to address “the origins, production, fandom and impact of The Walking Dead.”
After racing for 11 seasons, a lot has changed on The Walking Dead since its humble beginnings in 2010. Countless characters have passed on, including former leader of the survivors, Rick Grimes (Andrew Lincoln). The tone of the series has also changed as it becomes clear that the real threats in this new zombie-infested world are not the undead, but actually other survivors. From the description, it looks like this new exhibit will include items from all over the history of The Walking Deadcovering its various storylines and fan-favorite characters, many of whom were killed off along the way.
It remains to be seen how much this new Walking Dead the exposition will be but, with 11 seasons worth of material to dig into, it looks like there will be plenty for fans to do. Although The Walking Dead is no longer the ratings juggernaut it once was for AMC, the series is still hugely popular and the new spinoffs are set to usher in a whole new era for the Walking Dead franchise. Although there are still a few months to go, it certainly seems like fans of The Walking Dead won’t want to miss this new exhibition.
