According to a report from Deadline, Reedus was injured earlier this week on March 11, although it’s currently unknown exactly whether or not Reedus was filming or if something else happened on the set of the hit television series. According to a statement from Reedus’ spokesperson Jeffrey Chassen, Reedus is doing fine and will be ready to return to filming soon.

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

The report also mentions that the final wrap day for The Walking Dead — which is set to end after its incredibly successful 11-season run — has been pushed back, likely to accommodate Reedus as he recovers.

Season 11 consists of 24 episodes which be divided into three eight-episode parts, with the final two parts set to air in 2022. It features new cast members including Margot Bingham as Stephanie, Michael James Shaw as Mercer, Laila Robins as Pamela Milton, and Josh Hamilton as Lance Hornsby.
