‘The Walking Dead’ Season 10 Finale Delayed Until Later In 2020
‘The Walking Dead‘s current Season 10 run will be a little shorter than planned, as AMC announces the finale episode has had to be postponed until later in 2020 due to Coronavirus.
“Current events have unfortunately made it impossible to complete post-production of The Walking Dead Season 10 finale, so the current season will end with its 15th episode on April 5,” said AMC in a tweet. “The planned finale will appear as a special episode later in the year.”
Whilst principal filming was finished on the show, there is obviously quite a lot of post-production which goes into a series involving zombie slaying, and that is where the problems arise. Although some post-production to be done from home, not all of it is possible, hence the delay.
AMC had already shut down pre-production on Season 11 of the drama, meaning the show may return later than it’s usual Autumn/October timeslot. This prompted them to delay the launch of the new spin-off series ‘The Walking Dead: World Beyond’, which is completed and was due to launch in April.
Whilst they didn’t give a reason for moving that series, it seems likely they want to make sure they have something Walking Dead related that can put out in the Autumn if they can’t get the main series back on track in time. The other possibility is that something in ‘World Beyond’ directly relates to the main series finale, and so they can’t air the spin-off until the main series has completely finished.
This week’s episode of ‘The Walking Dead’ was the final appearance of regular cast member Danai Gurira and her alter ego Michonne. To mark this occasion, Andrew Lincoln released this very sweet “farewell” video message to Danai on social media.
‘The Walking Dead‘ Season 10 is currently airing Monday nights at 9pm on FOX in the UK, and Sunday nights on AMC in the US. If you’re a fan of the show, you can follow our weekly The Walking Dead UK Podcast over on EntertainmentTalk.org.
