Another program has had its season disrupted by the coronavirus. Just four days after The Walking Dead: World Beyond had its April 12 premiere date ditched although the entire season of the spin-off series was finished, the initial Walking Dead series has revealed on its social media channels that the season ending arranged for April 12 has actually also been delayed.
The posted message by AMC checks out: “Existing occasions have actually unfortunately made it difficult to complete post-production of The Walking Dead Season 10 finale, so the existing season will end with its 15 th episode on Sunday, April 5. The prepared finale will appear as a special episode later on in the year.”
Season 10 of the record-breaking zombie drama completed shooting in November, however post-production might not be finished in time on the last episode prior to the COVID-19 shutdown, leaving the last installment in limbo. And shooting on season 11 was supposed to start at the start of May but has actually already been pushed back three weeks, with more hold-ups potentially coming.
Worry the Strolling Dead has also extended its planned hiatus for 2 more weeks, and last Sunday’s episode of Talking Dead— which celebrated the last episode of Danai Gurira’s Michonne— was all done from another location, with host Chris Hardwick, TWD chief content officer Scott Gimple, and Gurira all appearing from their homes.
With the news of The Strolling Dead now delaying its season finale, the expected climax of the war with the Whisperers appears likely to be postponed also– possibly offering certain characters a short-term stay of execution.
