“The Walking Dead” is in its 11th and final season but it appears the final curtains will be delayed.

One of the series’ prominent stars, Norman Reedus, has reportedly suffered a concussion on set, Variety reported.

“Norman suffered a concussion on set,” Reedus’ publicist said in a statement. “He is recovering well and will return to work soon. Thank you to everyone for their concern.”

The incident reportedly happened last Mar. 11 in Georgia. The final episodes of the zombie-focused series and the incident will reportedly delay the show’s wrap but only be a few days. It was not detailed how the 53-year-old actor incurred the injury.

The initial eight episodes of “The Walking Dead’s” final season had already aired on Aug. 22, 2021. The expanded 16 seasons are expected to be shown this year.

After 11 seasons, the decision to end it all came as a shock to some. That included another “The Walking Dead” actor, Jeffrey Dean Morgan in a report from Collider.

“The news, when we got it in the middle of the pandemic, was a complete surprise, not only to me and the rest of the actors, but to everybody involved in the show from production. Scott Gimple and Angela Kang had no idea either. It came from nowhere and there was such a huge pivot. I think they had Season 11 all mapped out, where they were going to go, and suddenly it became, ‘We also have to close the story, in a way.’ It took everybody by surprise, so it was a massive pivot. And then, they threw in the six tacked-on episodes to Season 10, and instead of doing 16, we’re going to do 24 more. There was a lot of stuff to wrap our heads around,” he said.

“The Walking Dead” was at one point, one of the most-watched shows on television. However, any series will reach a point where ratings and viewership will decline. This happened when Steven Yeun made his exit.

An official premiere date has yet to be known although AMC confirmed it would be airing this summer.
