The Walking Dead is in a strange position at the moment: its 10th season wrapped up filming last year, and every episode has aired except for the finale, because post-production work was halted due to the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic, and a release date hasn’t been set yet.

The cast want you to know that the episode will be worth the wait, with Norman Reedus in particular comparing it to another major US series known for its large-scale combat.

“It’s going to be an epic battle,” he told Entertainment Weekly. “It’s like a full-on Game of Thrones super war battle.

“It was a lot of fun to shoot, but we really pushed the crew and pushed the actors on that one. Everyone really had to dig deep because… talk about exhausting episodes!

“There were huge battle scenes until the wee hours of the morning consistently, and it looks so grand on an epic scale. Those battle scenes are going to be legendary… This show will go down in history.

“I feel like every time we get to a finale or even a mid-season finale, we could be in over our heads, but there’s a confidence there and everybody really brings it.”

Producer Greg Nicotero recently said that, once lockdown is over, they may have to spend longer filming episodes due to having fewer people on set.

The Walking Dead’s season 10 finale will air as a special episode later this year on FOX in the UK. You can also catch up on the show via NOW TV. In the US, the show airs on AMC.
