It’s going to be a while until we see a new episode of anything from The Walking Dead universe. The main show, FEAR THE WALKING DEAD, and the upcoming third series THE WALKING DEAD: WORLD BEYOND have all been pushed or postponed due to the COVID-19 pandemic. AMC Networks COO Ed Carroll said, “We moved The Walking Dead: World Beyond…back into (the) fourth quarter, so we are finishing post(-production) on that. That will be set to go…And we anticipate having some episodes of Fear (the Walking Dead) Season 6 in the second half of the year as well.”
The Walking Dead, which normally would have already been filming Season 11, is still waiting to get back to work. “We have had to postpone production and post-production work on a number of shows, resulting in some scheduling shifts between now and the end of the year, which we are also managing through.” He added that the Season 11 writer’s room are still collaborating on a virtual stay-at-home basis. So when can they start filming again? “…We will monitor week to week, if not days to day” the production schedule, Carroll said.
So, it looks like the upcoming schedule (for now) is:
FEAR THE WALKING DEAD Season 6A (Summer)
THE WALKING DEAD Season 10 Finale (TBD)
THE WALKING DEAD: WORLD BEYOND Season 1 (Fall/Winter)
THE WALKING DEAD Season 11 (TBD)
Despite the delays and lost ad revenue, CEO Josh Sapan said their viewing numbers have increased. “Beginning in mid-March, the company experienced adverse advertising sales impacts and suspended content production, which has led to delays in the creation and availability of some of its television programming.” But, he said, “portfolio of networks saw a significant increase in viewership as of mid-March in connection with national social distancing measures put in place in response to COVID-19.”

I love walking dead
EEEEEEE. CANT FKN WAIT!!!
I wait for movie want to watch tv ? I am deaf
What happened to the talking dead show that was compatible with the walking dead on afterwards. I haven’t been able to keep up cause I lost my cable due to the high price we had to pay during my battle with cancer. What happened? I loved that show.
I can hardly bear being without any of my Walking Dead Series. I am in total withdrawal. Going oto go start watching Season one, come on Rick Grines wake up!
I so did the same thing. Started from the beginning.
I just want to see the S10 finale! ? ?
But I’m glad all our WDU actors & crew are safe and healthy. Hopefully the light that I’m seeing at the end of the tunnel is not just a mirage, and things will return (somewhat) normal.
PS: Nice info Johnny O!
Why not air every episode from the beginning
Until the return of full new episodes
This should cover the lengthy duration of this pandemic
Think about it, it could keep your fans from watching any thing Kardashian!

Serious serious serious withdrawals.
I’ll wait as long as it takes
I am so ready to watch TWD, but I also don’t won’t to see a lot of our major players on the show killed off either!! I’d love to see one of the biggest victories yet to come through!!
Can’t wait For The Walking Dead and Fear The Dead to Start Again omg sitting on pins and needles JUST waiting ? and so so waiting for the New Walking Dead World Beyond.
Didn’t realise that “TBD” is a release date.
Personally I would rather never see another episode than risk the lives of anyone in the cast and crew.They’ve been a part of my life for 10 years now, but risking THEIR lives is not worth it. Besides, we all know how they’d come back:(
