The Walking Dead is about to return from its mid-season break on AMC. As per normal, Netflix in the United States will get the tenth season because it’s on a legacy contract but when will season 10 be on Netflix? Let’s take a look.
Despite having a somewhat damaged reputation in its later seasons, the series is still one of the best action series going at the moment and AMC’s biggest show still. Season 9 (which arrived on Netflix in the US in September 2019) saw the departure of one of the show’s key stars so this season will be about how the rest of the cast manages.
Season 10 of The Walking Dead began on AMC from October 6th. New episodes air every Sunday up until roughly the end of March or in mid-April.
The Walking Dead season 10 Netflix release date
In previous years new seasons of The Walking Dead have released on Netflix in September like clockwork.
Unfortunately, due to the delay of the finale of season 10 thanks to the coronavirus pandemic, the Netflix release date may be pushed back by several weeks, if not months.
AMC released the following statement regarding the finale:
The planned finale will appear as a special episode later in the year.
Thanks to the ongoing pandemic, production on the upcoming eleventh season may also be delayed, impacting its annual October release date.
The Walking Dead season 10 will also arrive in a similar manner on Netflix in Canada meaning September 2020.
Other regions such as the United Kingdom and Australia are not streaming The Walking Dead.
Fans in Britain will need to use NowTV to stream the series, or alternatively have a subscription with Sky and use the on-demand service available.
Will The Walking Dead leave Netflix?
We also hear rumors of people saying that AMC will pull The Walking Dead from Netflix. This will eventually be the case but for now, Netflix operates this license on a legacy contract. That means it’ll stay on Netflix so long as new seasons release and once the show has ended, the show will leave after a few years.
In case you’re wondering, The Walking Dead will be headed back for an eleventh season on AMC in 2020 so there are still reasons to keep with the show
