The Walking Dead season 10 finale will air on October 4. The much-anticipated news about the delayed episode 16 was revealed during the show's Comic-Con 2020 panel. The finale was originally set to air in April but was pushed back due to the coronavirus pandemic.
Also “The Walking Dead” officially will not debut Season 11 this October due to the ongoing production shutdown caused by the coronavirus pandemic. This will mark the first time the show has failed to air a new season in October since it debuted in 2010.
But that's not it, there is more, Series showrunner Angela Kang made the announcement that six additional episodes that will be considered part of Season 10 will be shot and will arrive in early 2021, bringing the season to 22 episodes total. That will make it the longest season in “Walking Dead” history.
So, this might be confusing why episode 16 is still called as "finale"? This is because episode 16 will mark the end of the Beta and Whisperers story and a new chapter will start after that. Exec. producer Greg Nicotero hinted at Comic-Con panel, that last 5 minutes of episode 16 will see a whole new place and perhaps the commonwealth journey would start from there.
There is no clarity on why these 6 episodes were not considered as season 11 first 6 episodes but this might have something to do with keeping the audience busy in the beginning of 2021 so that season 11 can arrive on its traditional time in October 2021.
We also got an extended footage (watch below) of The Walking Dead season 10 finale trailer. Things aren't much better for the group of survivors than when we left off: they're surrounded on all sides by Beta, his group of Whisperers and thousands of walkers. Gabriel, Daryl, and even a returning Maggie all get the spotlight, but things are looking bleak for many of Alexandria, The Kingdom and Hilltop's finest.
