The Walking Dead is returning to our screens soon but when is the release date of season 10, episode 17? How many episodes will there be in total?

The Walking Dead is one of the longest-running and best-loved TV series currently airing and despite passing its peak viewership several seasons ago, it still picks up millions of viewers for each episode.

However, that has not made the series immune to the ongoing Covid-19 pandemic which has dramatically changed the way the show is to release going forward.

After numerous delays, fans were left waiting for season 10’s final few episodes for months but just when is the release date for episode 17 of the Walking Dead season 10 and how many episodes will there be in total?

The Walking Dead season 10

The Walking Dead season 10 began airing on AMC in the US way back in October 2019, when the thought of a global pandemic seemed almost impossible.

The 16-episode season was originally supposed to end on April 12th but owing to the lockdowns caused by the Covid-19 pandemic, post-production on episode 16 could not be completed.

As a result, episode 16 was delayed and the release schedule of the show was restructured, meaning new episodes would be added to season 10.

But after episode 16 arrived on October 4th, fans had been left wondering when episode 17 and beyond will arrive on AMC.
