The Walking Dead season 10 finale has been delayed due to coronavirus, producers have said.
The final episode was due to air in the US on April 12 – and the following day on Fox in the UK – but has now been pushed back to an unspecified date later in the year.
Season 10 of The Walking Dead will instead end with a 15th episode on April 5.
Network AMC said post-production on the long-running zombie series had been made “completely imopssible” by the coronavirus outbreak, which all but ground TV in the US to a halt.
It is not the first time the Walking Dead universe has been affected by the global health crisis.
The new series Walking Dead: World Beyond will no longer arrive next month and has instead been pushed to later in the year.
The season 10 finale delay comes after fans watched long-time star Danai Gurira leave the show in the most recent episode.
She had been a major character since joining in season three.
The Walking Dead, based on the comic book series of the same name, deals with a global pandemic that destroys civilisation and leaves survivors struggling to hold on in a world overrun with zombies.
