The Walking Dead’s Lauren Cohan has addressed the show’s ending, after it was confirmed the series would officially wrap up following an extended version of season 11.

The star, who plays Maggie Rhee, is set to make her comeback in the upcoming instalment since taking a break part way through season nine.

And when appearing on Live with Kelly and Ryan, she opened up on the ‘bittersweet’ news the show will finally be coming to an end.

‘It’s crazy,’ she said of the recent announcement. ‘I feel bittersweet because we still have two years of stuff to shoot, so we’re still going to be on television for a significant period.

‘But I feel two ways about it. Every good series that I’ve loved, like Fawlty Towers, is only a few seasons, and I’m like, “Oh, this is amazing, I love this approach of knowing there’s an endpoint.”’

The actress pressed: ‘So I kind of got excited when we first announced it, I think fans and everyone who has watched for all this tie and has been and invested family – we’re so lucky we’ve been going for so long and it’s so exciting to say, “Okay, let’s keep in for this final season and watch it together.

‘It makes me appreciate it.’

But while the main run will be hanging up its boots, the network, AMC, has since confirmed there will be an anthology series, as well as a Dary (Norman Reedus) and Carol (Melissa McBride) spin-off.

And by the sounds of things, it doesn’t stop there.

‘People are so hungry for our whole universe still which is so exciting because there are all these spin-off possibilities,’ Lauren teased. ‘I don’t know if I’m supposed to say that – but there are chances of that.’

Bosses announced the show would be ending in a statement on the official Twitter page, which read: ‘It’s been ten years gone by; what lies ahead are two more to come and stories and stories to tell beyond that.

‘What’s clear is that this show has been about the living, made by a passionate cast, team of writer/producers, producers, and crew, bringing to life the vision put forth by Robert Kirkman in his brilliant comic — and supported by the best fans in the world.

‘This will be a grand finale that will lead to new premieres. Evolution is upon us. THE WALKING DEAD lives.’

The Walking Dead season 10 will return to NOW TV and AMC October 4.
