The Walking Dead Sets S10 Finale Date, Adds New Eps; No S11 in 2020

The Walking Dead universe parade rolls on at Comic-Con@Home, kicking off with Fear the Walking Dead dropping a season 6 premiere date, a new teaser, the word that Lennie James and Colman Domingo would be directing episodes of a much darker, more anthology-like season. So clearly, the series that started it all had a lot to live up to- and they didn't disappoint. The Walking Dead brought TWDU Chief Content Officer Scott M. Gimple, Showrunner and Executive Producer Angela Kang, Executive Producer Greg Nicotero (who directed the season 10 finale) and cast members including Norman Reedus, Melissa McBride, Jeffrey Dean Morgan, Lauren Cohan, Josh McDermitt, Ross Marquand, Paola Lazaro, and more to discuss the still-unaired tenth season finale, the short-term fate of an eleventh season, and more.

Season six of Fear the Walking Dead explores what has become of the unlikely family once united by a mission to help those in need. After being torn apart by Virginia (Colby Minifie) and her Pioneers, the group is now dispersed across her far-reaching settlements. Morgan's (Lennie James) last message at the end of season five implored the group to "Live" and this season we'll see what that means to each of them. Some will find the stability and opportunity within Virginia's communities to be intriguing, some will sink into darkness, while others will fight back against what has been forced upon them. Life behind Virginia's walls will test each and every one of them in different ways, forcing them to define who they are in this new world.
