Reedus and Walking Dead showrunner Angela Kang discussed Sunday's season finale, which won't count as a finale after six extra episodes were ordered, and their future collaboration on the Daryl and Carol spinoff. "It was just such an epic finale, but it was an epic year," says Reedus. "I mean, we had Alpha, we had Beta, we had these giant super characters that season and the Beta episode at the end, the finale, where he’s coming at us with 200,000 zombies it had to be as big as Alpha’s end. So, to me, the whole season was large." Kang adds: "Yeah, this was obviously planned to be our Season 10 finale. At the start of this year we were heavy into what was our planned Season 11, we didn’t yet know anything about the future of the series. Then the pandemic hit and some things changed. One of the things that we had to shift to was doing six episodes that were more production friendly for the pandemic because, otherwise, we just wouldn’t be shooting anything for a long time. The epidemiologist was saying like, yeah, we can get back to work safely, but, we cannot have like 300 zombie extras crammed into a tiny space together. So, from there came like these six episodes, which are kind of a continuation of Season 10, though they weren’t originally planned to be."
