AMC announced on Tuesday that The Walking Dead season ten finale will be delayed to later this year due to the coronavirus pandemic.

In regard to the facts we have at hand, we know that the next two Sundays will air a regular episode of TWD and then there will be another hiatus for the franchise.

Last week's Walking Dead was the end for Michonne's (Gurira) journey with the survivors of Alexandria, but just because she's leaving the franchise's flagship series doesn't mean we've seen the last of her samurai sword-wielding badassery in the ever expanding world of The Walking Dead.

The Walking Dead star Danai Gurira's final episode aired Sunday, March 22, and Walking Dead alum Andrew Lincoln, who played Rick Grimes on the show, sent Gurira an emotional and surprisingly musical sendoff video.

"So the current season will end with its 15th episode on April 5".

Production company Skybound announced that The Walking Dead season 10 will conclude with what was originally planned to be the penultimate episode.

They included a poster which showed Daryl Dixon (Norman Reedus) looking very pale among a group of walkers.

Some fans were understanding of the situation but others showed their disappointment at the delay of the final episode.

The Walking Dead airs Sunday nights on AMC.

The Walking Dead had already postponed pre-production on season 11 after the TV industry in the U.S. and United Kingdom, like many other countries, ground to a halt earlier this month as coronavirus spread. Dread the Walking Dead, as of now in assembling on its sixth season, has focused on April thirteen to come back to creation. The series premiere, which was scheduled for April 12, has also been postponed due to the global coronavirus pandemic.

The Walking Dead Twitter account tweeted: "As much of a bummer as the delay is, we can promise #TWD 1016 will be an epic, action-packed thriller with plenty of surprises".
