Former fans of The Walking Dead are speaking out because they're so baffled that people actually still watch the show.
Because even though it's been on our screens for a decade now...
It seems as though a lot of people dropped out ages ago and they've stated various reasons as to why... Some of them are pretty wild.
Keep scrolling to have a look.
Now, AMC's The Walking Dead first aired back in 2010.
via: imdbThe post-apocalyptic zombie-themed horror series had us gripped to our screens as we watched a full-blown zombie apocalypse unfold in front of our eyes.
The series is based on the comic book by Robert Kirkman.The show portrays the weeks and months following a zombie takeover and follows a group of lucky (or unlucky) survivors attempting to stay alive and find secure shelter in a world wherein death could be around any corner.
The group is led by former police officer, Rick Grimes.
via: imdbThe Sherrif, who was shot in the line of duty, wakes from a coma to find out that the world is in the midst of an apocalypse. Imagine waking up to that.
He travels to Georgia to try to find his family.After eventually reuniting with his wife, Lori, and son, Carl, with the help of best friend, Shane Walsh, he discovers a group of survivors and finds himself taking on the role of leading the group to a safe haven.
But, of course, it isn't all smooth sailing.From the death of Lori to the war against Negan, it's a hard battle to stay alive for the former police officer and his group.
Originally, the show went down extremely well with fans...
Rewatching Season 1 of The Walking Dead and man, I still remember why it's my favorite show. Such a good series!!— TSM TannerSlays (@TSM TannerSlays)1506998426.0
Its profound success also earnt the franchise a spinoff.
The zombie franchise has garnered a mammoth fanbase.Whether its fanfiction, dedicated fan accounts, or simply those eagerly on countdown each year for a new season, there's no doubt that the show has found its niche audience.
The show is also a fan-favorite at Comicon.

It's been on our screens for a total of 10 seasons so far.
via: imdbJust like clockwork, each year, fans get a new season of the show, with the saga continuing across a lengthy number of seasons.
At the time, Chief content officer, Scott Gimple, said he believes that it's got even more life left in it.
via: imdbGimple, who was a showrunner for the franchise from season 4 to 8, now the chief content officer for the show, believes they can squeeze a staggering twenty more seasons out of the horror show. Woah. That's a lot of episodes.
But, it seems it's not meant to be.
Because fans of the show were told recently that the newest season, season eleven, will be it's last.
Season eleven is set to be super-sized, to give the show the farewell it deserves.
According to reports, the season will be a staggering twenty-four episodes long and will be premiering in the summer of 2021.
But while some people are excited about it, others are confused as to why people are still watching.
A recent thread went viral on Twitter after user Josh Carr asked people this: "F*** small talk I wanna know at what point you gave up on The Walking Dead."
The responses came flooding in...
It peaked in the season they were hunting for Beth only for it to be in vain. After that, I started to lose interest. Saw no point in committing to characters for them to just be killed off unless they were rick, carol or Daryl.— Captain Keyworker 🇪🇺🏳️🌈🏴🌈 (@Rhys_fantastico) March 1, 2021
But beware: these reactions contain major spoilers.
When they brought a fuckin tiger and onto the show— Turd Ferguson (@OldGhoul) March 2, 2021
Even though Glen’s death was true to the source material, it was ugly and unnecessary. I think the writers really underestimated how much people loved Glen. I watched for a bit longer, but Negan was so poorly written- his dialogue was laughably bad- that I couldn’t continue.— Erynn Dalton (@erynndalton) March 2, 2021
After Negan killed Glenn. Felt like I needed to go to confession after watching it 😂 I'm v tempted to go back to it for the last couple of seasons— Declan Williams (@declanwilli94) March 2, 2021
Same here. I was not only disgusted by who was killed, but the extreme graphic depiction. Even though I should have been used to the level of gore by that point, instead it made me instantly done. Never watched another new episode, & never watched another repeat.— Daniel Bach (@Daniel__Bach) March 1, 2021
When they killed off another Black character (Noah) for seemingly no reason and let the shitty white guy survive that lol— 🦋 TheOnlyException (Allie) 🦋 (@ExceptionCollab) March 2, 2021
I eventually continued only to be disappointed over and over. Stopped again after they screwed Carl’s actor when he turned 18 & they wrote him out.

Seen Carl get bit and I knew that was enough for me. All the good characters were gone and I just knew if Carl wasnt gon survive they was gon snatch Rick too and I haven’t even seen that mf in the new season trailer so I’m guessing he RIP’d a good hot minute ago pic.twitter.com/2c02v8jAtK— 𝚗𝚘 (@xecoze) March 2, 2021
as soon as that tiger came out— lizzy without the e (cut from the team) (@bladeefancam) March 2, 2021
It just ended up being the same, 1. Find a safe place. 2 rival gang of humans wants to kill them. 3. Fight zombies and humans 4. Move to new safe place.— Liam B (@BoozerArab) March 2, 2021
Had so much potential as well.
I forgot about these memes! Feels like ages ago.— Marshall Beach 19th St (@Beach19thSt) March 2, 2021
The episode when half of them got hit on the head with a baseball bat and had their throats cut— Jon (@samuriinbred) March 2, 2021
During The Governor arch. It started focusing more on the people fighting each other and the zombies became a side accessory.— Neighborhood Tsundere (@FushiCos) March 2, 2021
I wanted to watch the walking DEAD not the walking fear of how dangerous humans are in times of chaos. I could walk outside for that.
A few episodes before Rick dipped out.— Brooke Haybur (@QueenDoubleB) March 2, 2021
I mean, the introduction of the tiger was taking it too far, wasn't it?
But if you're still on board with the show, season eleven is set to premiere this summer so keep your eyes peeled.
