As we all know good and well, the season 10 finale of The Walking Dead has been delayed indefinitely due to the coronavirus pandemic. But today Norman Reedus teases the finale features a full-on Game of Thrones super war battle.
Reedus tells EW: “It’s going to be an epic battle. It’s like a full-on Game of Thrones super war battle. It was a lot of fun to shoot, but we really pushed the crew and pushed the actors on that one. Everyone really had to dig deep because… talk about exhausting episodes! There were huge battle scenes until the wee hours of the morning consistently, and it looks so grand on an epic scale.“
He adds: “Those battle scenes are going to be legendary. They really stick it to us on that show. But it always pays off. This show will go down in history. And I feel like every time we get to a finale or even a mid-season finale, we could be in over our heads, but there’s a confidence there and everybody really brings it.”
Based on the comic book series written by Robert Kirkman, this gritty drama portrays life in the months and years that follow a zombie apocalypse. A group of survivors travel in search of safety and security, constantly on the move in search of a secure home. But the pressure each day to stay alive sends many in the group to the deepest depths of human cruelty, and they soon discover that the overwhelming fear of the survivors can be more deadly than the zombies walking among them. At times, the interpersonal conflicts present a greater threat to their continuing survival than the walkers that roam the country.
The first season of sports an 87% over on Rotten Tomatoes with this Critics Consensus: Blood-spattered, emotionally resonant, and white-knuckle intense, The Walking Dead puts an intelligent spin on the overcrowded zombie subgenre.
