‘The Walking Dead’ Season Finale Halted Due to Coronavirus

The Coronavirus has taken its toll on another horror staple: It was reported that The Walking Dead is ending its season sooner than expected.

A statement from AMC, as reported by TVLine, says the show’s current season “will end with its 15th episode on April 5. The planned finale will appear as a special episode later in the year.

“Current events have made it impossible to complete post-production of The Walking Dead Season 10 finale,” the statement added.

This news comes just days after AMC said it was delaying the launch of The Walking Dead: World Beyond until later this year, also because of the Coronavirus pandemic. The new show was scheduled for an April 12 premiere, airing right after the now-postponed Season 10 finale of The Walking Dead.

This new show will revolve around the first generation of survivors raised after the zombie apocalypse. According to the show’s description, “two sisters, along with two friends, leave a place of safety and comfort to brave dangers, known and unknown, living and undead, on an important quest.”

This spinoff will star Alexa Mansour (The Resident) and Aliyah Royale (The Red Line).
