In addition to delaying the releases of movies such as A Quiet Place Part II and Spiral, the coronavirus (COVID-19) is also having an impact on the world of television, with the premiere date for AMC's The Walking Dead: World Beyond now postponed.
The news was shared on the official Twitter account for The Walking Dead: World Beyond. Originally slated to premiere on Sunday, April 12th (following the season 10 finale of The Walking Dead), the third Walking Dead series will now premiere "later this year," with an exact date yet to be announced.
Deadline reports that while filming was completed on the first season of The Walking Dead: World Beyond, the series "...was in post-production on the last few episodes, which has been impacted by the COVID-1-related company closures."
The coronavirus has also delayed pre-production on The Walking Dead Season 11 and halted production on Fear The Walking Dead Season 6, as previously reported by Deadline.
A "two-season limited event" that marks the third TV series in The Walking Dead universe, The Walking Dead: World Beyond follows the first generation to grow up on a planet now dominated by the living dead.
