The series will return to production on April 13. On Friday, the network also announced that it will postpone the premiere of The Walking Dead: Beyond World. The new zombie-apocalypse drama was originally scheduled to debut on April 12. The drama will now debut “later this year.”
The global pandemic has halted every aspect of the entertainment industry. Most productions have been halted over the past two weeks alone. Some celebrities have also announced that they contracted the deadly virus. Movies and television shows are suspending production to prevent the spread of the pandemic. Meanwhile, other shows had to push back release dates because of post-production issues.
While it’s disappointing to learn about so many of your favorite television shows and movies being cancelled or postponed during this time, it’s understandable that the health of the cast and crew is important.
