Fans of The Walking Dead have been treated to a flurry of news about the AMC horror franchise following months of uncertainty. The team behind the long-running series have shared news about the eagerly-anticipated season 11 at Comic-Con@Home. Express.co.uk has the lowdown below on what fans can expect next from The Walking Dead.
When will The Walking Dead season 11 be released?
The short and frustrating answer is there is no news. But one thing is clear, season 11 won’t be airing in 2020.
Speaking at the Comic-Con@Home panel, The Walking Dead’s showrunner Angela Kang shared an update for fans.
Kang told media including Deadline: “Obviously, COVID has kind of disrupted a lot of things for every workplace, including ours.”
However, she said work on season 11 was very much under way in the writers’ room as the scripts were devised for the new episodes.
A premiere date has now been confirmed for the long-awaited season 10 finale, which was delayed due to COVID-19.
While all the filming had been completed before lockdown, post-production had to be down in quarantine which meant the episode wasn’t ready for some time.
Now thought. The Walking Dead season 10 finale will be airing on October 4 on AMC.
This will be shortly before the highly-anticipated new spin-off series The Walking Dead: World Beyond, which was originally slated to debut earlier this year but also was pushed back to the global heath crisis.
There was also a silver lining after Fear The Walking Dead season six got a premiere date of October 11.
This means the sister show will be starting the week after the season 10 finale.
Fear The Walking Dead usually airs all the way through without any midseason hiatus but it’s not clear yet if the show will be following its usual format.
However, fans of the franchise will be getting two shows with World Beyond and Fear both on screens this autumn.
When season 11 of The Walking Dead does finally air, fans will see Lauren Cohan making her big comeback as Maggie Rhee after she exited in season nine.
Cohan has previously said she character will be changed and fans are likely to see a reckoning between Maggie and Negan (played by Jeffrey Dean Morgan) over her dead husband Glenn Rhee (Steven Yeun).
The Walking Dead season 10 finale will be airing on October 4
