'Walking Dead' to be laid to rest in 2022

The end is coming for "The Walking Dead," but not until 2022.

The AMC series that became a franchise with current and planned spin-offs will wrap with an 11th season spanning 24 episodes and two years, the channel said Wednesday.

The series has yet to air six episodes that are part of an expanded 10th season. Those are set for early next year.

When "The Walking Dead" is laid to rest in late 2022, a new spin-off centered on characters Daryl Dixon and Carol Peletier (Norman Reedus, Melissa McBride) will follow in 2023, AMC said.

An anthology series, "Tales of the Walking Dead," focusing on new and existing characters, is in development along with other projects "grounded in 'The Walking Dead' universe," the channel said.

Actor Anthony Rapp and another man filed a lawsuit on Wednesday against actor Kevin Spacey, accusing him of sexual assaults in the 1980s when they were teens.

Rapp, who starred in "Rent" on Broadway and in "Star Trek: Discovery" on TV, had first spoken out against the Oscar-winning Spacey in 2017, a decision that led to others speaking up and Spacey's up-to-then celebrated career coming to an abrupt end.

In the lawsuit, filed in state Supreme Court in Manhattan, Rapp detailed what he has said publicly about Spacey, that the older actor made a sexual advance to him when a teenage Rapp attended a party.

The other plaintiff, who goes by the initials C.D., said that he met Spacey as a teenager while taking an acting class, and that Spacey invited him to his apartment on multiple occasions and engaged in sexual acts with him. In the lawsuit, the plaintiff said Spacey attempted to assault him sexually on his final visit..

A judge found enough evidence to send Matthew Hughes to trial on charges of home invasion and malicious destruction of property.

Hughes wasn't armed when he was discovered in Eminem's home in Clinton Township, Michigan. Eminem, whose real name is Marshall Mathers, was sleeping and thought the man was his nephew.

"When Mr. Mathers asked him why he was there, he was told by Mr. Hughes that he was there to kill him," Officer Adam Hackstock told Judge Jacob Femminineo Jr.

Eminem escorted Hughes out of the house, Hackstock testified.
