After the original season finale was delayed The Walking Dead’s extended season 10 returned in 2021 but will there be an episode 23?

Season 10 of The Walking Dead has endured a troubled release schedule since it first aired in October 2019.

After having its original season finale delayed thanks to the Covid-19 pandemic, the extended season 10 returned to AMC in February 2021.

But once episode 22 airs on AMC+ on April 1st and AMC itself on April 4th, will there be an episode 23 in The Walking Dead season 10?

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, 2020 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.

Those new episodes began in February 2021 with the biggest talking points including the return of Maggie Rhee and the emergence of a new threat, a sinister human faction known as the Reapers.
