A mixed bag of news for fans of the O.G. version of The Walking Dead, which has been disrupted more than most by the coronavirus. Yesterday during the show’s Comic-Con @ Home panel, showrunner Angela Kang revealed the season 10 finale, titled “A Certain Doom”, would air on AMC on October 4th. Filming of the episode had been postponed due to the outbreak of COVID-19.
The Walking Dead‘s Comic-Con panel always ends with a trailer and season premiere date for October. That’s not going to be the case this year, though. Kang also revealed that Season 11 would be delayed, and that instead there would be six additional season 10 episodes to air in early 2021. Kang added “if all goes well”, suggesting that the situation is still wide open and could change.
A brief look at “A Certain Doom” was also shown, giving our first look at the on-screen return of Lauren Cohan as Maggie. Cohan had left the series briefly during season 9 to star in the short-lived Whiskey Cavalier, but now she’s back full-time and in the thick of the zombie action.
