The Walking Dead: World Beyond release date has been canceled. The word “postponed” doesn’t quite work here, because AMC hasn’t even given a new date.
The new spin-off to The Walking Dead was supposed to premiere on Sunday, April 12, but that’s not going to happen any longer.
AMC just posted the really bad news on social media. Now, fans who are well aware that the Season 10 finale for The Walking Dead is coming up, won’t have something to look forward to this spring.
According to the social media post, AMC wants fans to keep following the new Twitter account in order to read up on any future updates.
As a reminder to readers who may have forgotten, the new TWD spin-off is going to revolve around kids who were born after the apocalypse took place.
This new look at the universe of The Walking Dead is supposed to give viewers a unique look at the post-apocalyptic world.
Here is that note on Twitter from the show:
The Walking Dead: World Beyond is moving its premiere date from Sunday April 12th to later this year.

Production issues with The Walking Dead Season 11
Filming for Season 11 of The Walking Dead was already impacted by coronavirus worries. There were also rumors that the filming for Fear the Walking Dead Season 6 had to delay production.
With the problems getting those two shows back on the network, it might be safe to assume that AMC decided to spread out the shows that it has already completed.
Season 10 of The Walking Dead already finished filming, allowing them to roll out the final episodes of the season over the next few weeks.
AMC also finished filming Season 1 of World Beyond, so there aren’t actually production issues with that show, but now they can delay airing the episodes in order to place a gap between the season finale of TWD and the series premiere of World Beyond.
The Walking Dead Season 10 episodes
During the last episode of The Walking Dead, viewers got taken on a pretty broad journey by the show. It ended with Negan killing Alpha. But that wasn’t the biggest reveal. Fans also learned that it was Carol who let Negan out of that jail cell so he could go on a mission.
Next up is Michonne’s final episode. We have spoilers already available for Season 10, Episode 13 and it provides some information about her final scenes. This is a stand-alone episode before the writers and producers take AMC viewers back to the Whisperer War.
The Walking Dead airs Sunday nights at 9/8c on AMC.
