AMC Mainstay “The Walking Dead” will end the current season one week prematurely, as the coronavirus shutdown has interfered with postproduction work on the zombie drama’s finale. The cable net announced that the post-apocalyptic series would have to close its 10th season with the 15th episode, on April 5, posting a message to fans that the finale will air later this year.
AMC has already been forced to postpone upcoming spinoff “Walking Dead: World Beyond,” which was scheduled to premiere immediately after the finale for the flagship show. Later episodes of that series — a limited two-season project — have not been completed. “The Walking Dead: World Beyond” was slated to premiere Sunday, April 12 at 10/9c — directly after the now-postponed Season 10 finale of “The Walking Dead.”
