Walking Dead Season 11 Delayed, But Season 10 Will Be Longer

The Walking Dead Season 10 finale has a new date--plus six more episodes. Here's an extended clip.

When The Walking Dead delayed its Season 10 finale due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, there was no word on when fans would actually see the episode. After its Comic-Con@Home panel, though, we now know when it will air--and that it's not exactly the finale anymore.

During the panel for The Walking Dead, it was revealed that the Season 10 finale, "A Certain Doom," would finally broadcast on AMC on Sunday, October 4--one week before the premiere of Fear the Walking Dead. However, showrunner Angela Kang also revealed that it's technically not the final episode of Season 10, as AMC has ordered additional episodes. Six more Season 10 episodes will premiere in early 2021, though no specific dates were announced.

To celebrate the extended season, the opening three-and-a-half minutes of the Season 10 finale were revealed in the panel, showing the various settlements gearing up for war against the Whisperers and their army of walkers. What's more exciting about the clip, though, is the return of Maggie (Lauren Cohan), who is shown finding a letter catching her up on what's been happening since she left in Season 9. Since then, Maggie has only been seen once, in a hallucination by Michonne. However, based on this clip, it looks like she's headed back to join the fight. And according to Cohan herself, during the panel, "It's more than a visit. She's coming back."

It's not all good news, unfortunately. While Season 10 will be longer, Season 11 will miss the show's traditional October premiere window. Because of the pandemic, the next season of the series has been delayed with no set time for it to actually premiere.

Instead of dwelling on that, though, think about the good news. The Walking Dead will return on October 4.

11 seasons? For me this is getting too old in the tooth and it would be nice to see where they are eventually able to turn this disease around and defeat it as the show is not as focused on dead but more on the fall of civilization. The show was good up to the seventh season and from there it just made no sense. for me.

I can't believe that there are still people out there watching this. I Stop watching two seasons ago and when i heard that Rick left the show i thought that the walking dead would die shortly after.

As a fan, it's unfortunate that this show is being watched by suckers like me out of a sense of obligation rather than enjoyment. The writers keep coming up with ways to make characters seem dumber by the day.

After eight years of being in a world overrun by zombies, there's no way there would still be survivors wandering around who acted like they've never fought one before. There's no way a main character like Carol would suddenly turn into a whiny, simpering drug addict over crap that's nothing compared to what she's made it through already. Are the actors themselves demanding these scripts so they can get more screen time and show their "range"? There's no other reason to make it so stupid.
