There is now a date for the end of the world, at least like The walking deadThe beta sees it. Friday, at the Comic-Con @ Home panel of the AMC drama, Talk dead Host Chris Hardwick has announced that the Season 10 finale, “A Certain Doom,” delayed when these grueling quarantines initially prevented post-production completion, will air on Sunday, October 4 at 9 / 8c. In addition, it will be immediately followed that night by the postponed first of the second spin-off in the series, The Walking Dead: The World Beyond and a new episode of Talk about dead.
But those announcements, which accompanied an expanded version of the episode’s opening minutes – now with more beta and therefore more crayons – were just the tip of the iceberg. Showrunner Angela Kang also revealed that Season 10 has been extended by six episodes, to premiere in early 2021 “if all goes well.”
What does this mean for season 11? Sadly – and obviously – this means Season 11 won’t be able to air in October, because The walking dead the seasons always do.
Viewers will remember that in the penultimate episode of Season 10 – well, back then was the second to last – Alpha’s right-hand man had led his horde of guardians to the threshold of our heroes’ hideout. But help, we learned in a preview of the final-that’s-not-a-final, was on its way, in the form of Kevin Carroll’s Virgil, who had apparently decided not to stay on his private island to care for her family’s graves and the return of Lauren Cohan as Maggie.
Towards the rear end of the panel, the Death-Verse content director Scott M. Gimple was asked if he could create a pre-apocalyptic spinoff for any character, who would it be? Responding to Glenn, since missing Steven Yeun, he admitted that in fact, “we look at things where we can take a look at the characters from the past ”- not necessarily before the apocalypse, but at least at the start of the apocalypse. Kang also confirmed what we already know, thanks to the Robert Kirkman comics – that the Commonwealth is coming.
