TWD fans’ were left disappointed earlier last month after learning AMC had announced the delay of The Walking Dead Season 10 finale episode. The much-awaited finale is expected to air sometime later in the year but it currently does not have a fixed air date.
Recently in an interview, the director of the episode explained the reason behind its postponement and it is understandable why the network hasn’t provided clear instructions yet to the viewers. It shouldn’t come as a surprise that the delay behind the post-production of The Walking Dead season 10 episode 16 is connected to the Coronavirus Pandemic as film & TV production all over the globe have come to a halt. Due to the unforeseen calamity, the season was cut short.
Speaking to Den of Geek, the show’s executive producer and director of the episode, Greg Nicotero explained in detail the work that goes on behind-the-scenes to the finish up the episode. Although principal photography of the finale seemed to have wrapped up, post-production work such as sound mixing, quality check etc was still yet to be done and could not be completed due to the inability to work since quarantine.
“We were right on the cusp of just about finishing the episode when everybody had to stop work,” Nicotero told Den of Geek. “And it’s not like you can do a lot of that stuff remotely. I looked at all the visual effects stuff that was coming in when we were shooting because there was a lot of VFX for the finale, and everything looked magnificent. It’s just a matter of waiting until we can basically mix all the ingredients. I don’t know when that’s going to be. But I think once people get a chance to go back to work, it’s probably a week and a half or two weeks of fine-tuning.”
The finale episode will be aired as a special later on in between season 10 and 11. The sneak peek clip released earlier this month revealed the return of Maggie. Stay tuned for updates related to TWD.
