‘The Walking Dead’ season 10 finale affected by COVID-19 pandemic

The season ten finale of AMC’s epic horror series The Walking Dead is temporarily on halt due to the ongoing coronavirus pandemic.

The new season of The Walking Dead has attracted comic book readers and television viewers alike.

Unfortunately, due to industry-wide shutdowns caused by the coronavirus crisis,  episode 16 of The Walking Dead season 10 is not yet finished. It appears  that the post-production work of the heavy finale is required.

As a result, finishing the episode amid the global pandemic is easier said than done. AMC indefinitely delayed the final episode of season 10 alongside the series premiere of The Walking Dead: World Beyond. 

Greg Nicotero, the director and executive producer of the series promised that the delayed season finale will not disappoint viewers. Furthermore, showrunner Angela Kang rendered an assurance that the fans will not be left unsatisfied with series’ end.

In an interview, she expressed her disappointment, but stated,

 “I really love how episode 15 came out. People did amazing work on it. It will feel like there’s kind of an epic, wonderful end to it.” 

What to expect

AMC has released a trailer for what will be The Walking Dead season ten’s finale. The extended trailer for the next episode puts things in place for a dramatic conclusion to a brilliant season.

The finale will see the Whisperer War reaching a climax as the survivors attempt to fight back against Beta’s massive horde. The end of the trailer provides the biggest surprise, which is Maggie’s appearance. It will be her first appearance ever since she departed in the same episode as Andrew Lincoln in season 9. 

She is shown reading a letter filling her in on the tragic events of the Whisperer war, including the deaths of three of her closest friends – Jesus (Tom Payne), Tara (Alanna Masterson) and Enid (Kateyn Nacon).

Moreover, showrunner Kang has added more hints at what fans can expect from the show’s much anticipated finale. According to her, the upcoming episode will include an explanation of Maggie’s previous whereabouts. Kang also discussed about Beta’s revenge following Negan’s killing of Alpha.

When will the finale air

Although the showrunner did not confirm the release date for the episode, her comments indicate episode 16 titled A Certain Doom will air on AMC very shortly after the coronavirus lockdown reaches its end.

The Walking Dead’s season 10 finale will air as a special episode on FOX in the UK. Viewers can also catch up on the show via NOW TV, while in the US, the show airs on AMC.
