The Walking Dead: Jeffrey Dean Morgan Predicts When the Series Will End

At a special screening at the TCL Chinese Theatre in Los Angeles, cast and crew came together to view the premiere episode The Walking Dead's 10th season. Afterward, the cast answered questions regarding their characters' fates in the upcoming season, as well as when they think the show might come to an end.

Jeffrey Dean Morgan -- who plays the former leader of the Saviors, Negan -- told Variety, "You don't want to run it into the ground. Me personally, I'd say let's go out on top. Let's go out still being the number one show in the world. Whether or not that happens, I don't know. I think if we just stuck with the comic book, we've still got another three years. We do deviate a lot, but I think there's probably a good three years of material there."

The comic book series that provided the source material for the show ended in July by creator Robert Kirkman. Showrunner Angela Kang, however, teased that, although the comics have finished, there may still be plenty of story opportunities to explore within the show.

"Depending at the pace we go, it could be very fast at the end or it could be very slow," Kang said. "We always fill in with original material. Robert said to me and Scott Gimple, look at all these threads that I set up for you, so the story could go a million different ways."
