The Walking Dead Season 10’s been forced on an impromptu break due to the Coronavirus pandemic, but we’ve been looking into when the show will return.
It’s been such a strange year so far, all thanks to the Coronavirus pandemic.
We’ve seen movies and TV shows pushed back due to the pandemic.
The likes of No Time To Die, Black Widow, Mulan and The Flash all be pushed back due to COVID-19.
Another TV show which suffered due to the virus has been The Walking Dead.
Season 10 was supposed to end with Episode 16 and that was going to air on AMC on April 12th.
However, AMC has been forced to push that back and even claimed that last weekend’s episode, The Tower, was going to be Season 10’s new makeshift finale.
When will The Walking Dead Season 10 return?
In a statement via Twitter, AMC said: “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. The planned finale will appear as a special episode later in the year.
“The first 8 episodes of The Walking Dead Season 10 will be available for free on http://AMC.com and the AMC app, immediately following the last Season 10 episode on Sunday, April 5 through Friday, May 1. Please follow us at @WalkingDead_AMC for updates.”
This means that Season 10’s finale episode will no longer actually be Season 10’s finale, if that makes any sense.
They haven’t been able to complete post-production on it, which means that last week’s episode, The Tower, was Season 10’s new finale episode.
Why did AMC cut The Walking Dead Season 10 short?
So this means that we’re going to have to wait to watch The Walking Dead Season 10’s real finale.
There’s still no official release date for this missing Episode 16 of The Walking Dead Season 10.
However, showrunner Angela Kang did offer up a glimmer of hope in a recent interview with Deadline.
“We’re almost at that finish line,” she said in relation to Episode 16.
“They’re trying to finish what they can, and then once things are up and running, we’ll finish it out and air it.”
So, this means that we’re going to have to wait a little bit longer until we get to see how Season 10 really ends.
What will happen to the rest of Season 10?
As for what will happen in Season 10’s finale, your guess is as good as mine.
However, we do know that Maggie (Lauren Cohen) is going to be returning in this episode.
There’s also going to be a big battle with some rather hungry walkers.
A new trailer for Season 10’s finale was released recently.
It showed Gabriel scurrying around the building, trying to get everyone prepared for the oncoming Whisperer onslaught.
When a child then tells him that they are outnumbered, she tells her that all five groups are much stronger when they work together.
Season 10’s finale will see Maggie return
Alexandria, Hilltop, the Kingdom, Oceanside, and the others.
The camera then cuts to several people who will presumably be helping the cause in the finale.
That includes new character Princess, Virgil, and then the trailer ends by revealing Maggie’s return.
Thankfully, she’s all caught up on the events of season 10 after reading a handwritten note, which is very helpful.
