For the first time, the AMC drama won't premiere a new season in October due to the coronavirus crisis. Showrunner Angela Kang made the announcement at Friday's Comic-Con@Home panel, where she revealed that the coronavirus-delayed Season 10 finale will air on Oct. 4. Kang also announced that six additional episodes are being added to Season 10. Those episodes will premiere in early 2021, bringing the Season 10 total to 22 episodes, making it the longest season in Walking Dead history.
