After a long delay due to the coronavirus, the season 10 finale of The Walking Dead finally has a release date on the cards.

The current season of the show last aired the penultimate episode back in April - leaving fans on a huge cliffhanger. But fortunately everyone won’t have long to wait to find out what happens, as the final episode shall air in just a few months time.

If you’re looking to tune in from the UK or US, here’s how you can do so. We also have similar guides for watching Hamilton online, as well as a complete breakdown of how to watch Crisis on Infinite Earths in order.

It's also now been revealed that season 11 will be the final season of The Walking Dead.

When will The Walking Dead season 10 finale air?

Announced at AMC’s The Walking Dead panel during [email protected], the season finale will air on Sunday 4 October at 9pm.

In addition, in the UK the episode will air one day after it has broadcast in America, on Monday 5 October at 9pm.

All this news does mean that season 11 of The Walking Dead will not air in October as originally planned, as filming for this has also been delayed. However, season six of the spin-off of the main series - Fear The Walking Dead - will debut on Sunday 11 October at 9pm with a new anthology format.
