‘The Walking Dead’ Director Says Season Finale Will Be Jaw-Dropping

The director of the Season 10 finale of The Walking Dead has teased fans of the popular AMC series with a surprise ending that will leave them with mouths wide open.

The season finale–helmed by Greg Nicotero–was bumped back from April 12 to an unspecified date later this year due to the COVID-19 crisis. And the action reportedly will pick up where the episode The Tower left off, according to comicbook.com.

In discussing the finale during a recent interview with Fandom, Nicotero said that, during the last two minutes of the episode, “people’s jaws are gonna drop.”

Fans of the show will remember that The Tower ended with Judith, Negan, Father Gabriel and other survivors trapped in an abandoned hospital tower and under siege from an army of zombies led by Whisperer Beta.

Nicotero noted that showrunner Angela Kang has “really kept the momentum of the show moving forward. Where we left everyone was that Beta and the horde were surrounding the tower, and the finale picks up right where we left off.”

And that cliffhanger ending had the embattled group of survivors trapped by thousands of the walking dead just as Maggie returns to the storyline to begin a new chapter of the show.

“I think it’s already been revealed that Maggie’s return is in the finale,” Nicotero said, “and it tees us up so well for Season 11.”

The director added that in the finale, “we address lots of stuff with Daryl, lots of stuff with Negan, lots of stuff with Beta, lots of stuff with Carol.” Nicotero promised that the finale “will not disappoint” when it airs later this year.

Showrunner Kang also said the Season 10 finale will end in dramatic fashion. “I’ll just say that there’s some big stuff and there is a cliffhanger,” she told Entertainment Weekly. “But I think, hopefully, it will be exciting.”
