If you played the last season of Telltale's The Walking Dead: A New Frontier, you knew more was on the way for Clementine's story. Today, Telltale officially announced its final season of Robert Kirkman's zombie-infested world. 

To conclude the tale, Telltale is bringing back writer Gary Whitta as a story consultant, who is best known for his work on Rogue One: A Star Wars Story and The Book of Eli. Whitta also wrote the fourth episode of Telltale's first season of The Walking Dead.

"Collaborating with Telltale on the first season of Clementine's journey through the world of The Walking Dead was one of the highlights of my career, so reuniting with them to now bring her story to a close with this final season feels like a homecoming," Whitta said in a press release. "Clementine has become not just one of the most compelling characters in the Walking Dead pantheon but one of the great video game characters of all time. I hope we're able to do justice to her and to her millions of fans. This one feels special."

The Walking Dead: The Final Season (working title) hits in 2018 on PS4, Xbox One, PC, Mac, iOS, and Android. 

In addition to the announcement of the final season, Telltale also revealed The Walking Dead: The Telltale Series Collection for PS4 and Xbox One, which launches on December 5. The collection includes all 19 episodes on a single disc and is also releasing digitally. It includes the most recent season, as well as visually enhanced versions of season one and two, 400 Days, and the Michonne mini-series. The set costs $49.99.
