The Walking Dead season ten was abruptly truncated due to the coronavirus lockdown after 15 episodes. The last scheduled episode was put on pause. Now, during the virtual San Diego Comic Con, AMC's Walking Dead symposiums have revealed what the franchise has planned. First off, the episode we were missing will air on October 10. Watch the first few minutes of it here.
Note I did not say that The Walking Dead “finale” will air on October 4th, because — twist — it will no longer be the finale. At Comic-Con, Angela Kang also announced that, although production has not yet begun, the plan is to add an additional six episodes to season 10, which will air in 2021. It sounds like, instead of jumping to season 11 in its traditional February slot, the series will add additional season 10 episodes in the Spring and, presumably if all goes well, begin season 11 in the fall.
Following the singular Walking Dead episode on October 10, the new spinoff series Walking Dead: World Beyond will premiere, followed by The Talking Dead. Fear the Walking Dead will begin its season six the next day, on October 11th. The Comic Con trailer is here. Also read some details of what you can expect to see.
