'The Walking Dead': While we wait for Season 10 finale, here's when Season 11 of the AMC show may air
The coronavirus pandemic has thrown a spanner into the works for businesses, film and television studios and their schedules. Seasons have been cut short and fans have to wait a long time before the finales of their favorite shows air.
One example is AMC's 'The Walking Dead'. The air date for the Season 10 climactic finale of the apocalyptic horror show has not been announced yet and fans are waiting eagerly to know who survives the deadly showdown.
Meanwhile, Season 11, which was meant to have begun filming in the spring, has had to postpone production as well as shut down shooting on 'Fear The Walking Dead' Season 6.
The finale for Season 10 was delayed as it required post-production work and the special-effects heavy episode could not be completed before its planned April 12 date.
"We had finished Season 10 shooting wise, and we were airing the episodes, and what happened was the last episode couldn't air because they were unable to finish the editing on it. So the season finale, episode 16, we don't know when that will air," Jeffrey Dean Morgan said on 'Live with Kelly and Ryan' while promoting a new video chat-based AMC show 'Friday Night In with The Morgans'.
"I'm hoping in the next couple of months you'll see the season finale of the show." Morgan plays the role of Negan on 'The Walking Dead'. "As far as 'The Walking Dead' and the next season goes, no one knows when and where and how and if," Morgan said. "It's a big waiting game to see what's gonna happen."
The writing for the zombie horror is continuing remotely, under showrunner Angela Kang, who told ComicBook that work on the finale was "very, very close" to finishing before California shut down for business.
"I think actually, by the time the world is safe for people to start venturing out, probably all of the effects will be done, and then it's just a handful of processes and it can be turned around very, very quickly," Kang said.
'A Certain Doom,' airs sometime later this year. "We're very hopeful that we can get it all done very rapidly once we're back up and running." Kang has described Season 11 as having an urban feel, mixed with thriller elements. In all probability, the new season will not air in October, as planned.
