[email protected] wrapped up yesterday (July 26th), but not before we got plenty of details on what’s happening with our favorite TV shows. Fans of The Walking Dead have been waiting since March to find out when the season 10 finale will air, and on Friday (July 24th), fans finally got the news they’d been waiting for.
The season 10 finale will air October 4th at 9pm ET on AMC – months after the original air date of April 12th. The delay is due to the coronavirus pandemic, which caused widespread disruption across the entertainment industry. As special effects in post-production couldn’t be completed on time, the episode’s release was postponed.
The panel also brought more good news. As season 11 won’t air this year (again due to coronavirus), we’ll be treated to an extra 6 episodes of season 10, which will release in early 2021. Plus, the first three minutes of the season finale were previewed, which you can watch on YouTube now.
The finale, titled ‘A Certain Doom’, promises a huge amount of action. We’ll see the Whisperers come up against Hilltop, Alexandria, the Kingdom and Oceanside – with newcomers Princess (Paola Lázaro) and Virgil (Kevin Carroll) lending a hand, plus the return of Maggie (Lauren Cohan). There’s also another mysterious newcomer set to appear, though details about this new character are scarce.
Fear The Walking Dead will return October 11th with season 6, and upcoming spinoff The Walking Dead: World Beyond – which will last for two seasons – has already wrapped on season 1. As for the Rick Grimes movies, which will see the return of Andrew Lincoln as Rick, Robert Kirkman (co-creator of The Walking Dead comic series and writer for the TV show) confirmed he is still working on these – but they’re currently held up by the pandemic.
