The Walking Dead season 10 will be ending sooner than its scheduled time due to the coronavirus shutdown in the US, according to AMC. Through its official Twitter page, the broadcasting channel revealed that the current season of the horror thriller series will end a week earlier than expected.
As per the current schedule, the tenth season of the popular post-apocalyptic horror drama series had two more episodes left before its season finale. The final episode was expected to air on April 12. But the current global shutdown has affected the post production work of season finale, AMC noted.
So, the broadcasting channel has decided to conclude the current season on April 5 and telecast the final episode later in the year as a special episode. Viewers will have to wait a little longer to know the story's conclusion though the season will end earlier than expected.
News about rescheduling of The Walking Dead season 10 episodes came days after AMC announced a delay in its new spin-off series 'The Walking Dead: World Beyond'. The series premiere, which was scheduled for April 12, has also been postponed due to the global coronavirus pandemic.
