As COVID-19 continues to spread, filming must be stopped and film productions put on ice prematurely. The corona virus does not stop at the zombie apocalypse. It was recently announced that the season 10 finale of The Walking Dead will also appear later. Until then, we will have to do without German dubbing in the new episodes.
Numerous film studios have had to postpone the release of several blockbusters. These include James Bond: No Time To Die, Mission: Impossible 7 and the Netflix film Red Notice with Dwayne Johnson. But series also groan under the pressure of the corona crisis. So The Walking Dead fans have to be patient until the season 10 finale can be seen. Until then, there is another bad news: The new episodes will no longer appear in German.
Due to the corona measures, the synchronization of season 10 #TheWalkingDead cannot be continued at the moment. For this reason, we only show the remaining episodes of the 10th season in the original sound with German subtitles and not as usual in the two-channel sound. pic.twitter.com/Nptp8MW4jt

As the broadcaster FOX reveals in an official announcement on Twitter, the last three episodes of the current season are only published in the original English language. After all, German subtitles will be made available to the viewers. The new episodes of The Walking Dead are already running in Germany one day after the US premiere. They are often synchronized at extremely short notice. After the crisis, FOX wants to work on the three episodes mentioned later.
Meanwhile, other German channels have to cope with the restrictions. Several RTL soaps had to stop production recently. The dubbing studios from Sat.1 are also rescheduling the US series Lincoln Rhym: The bone hunter will not be broadcast as planned from April 2, 2020. In fact, the series was paused indefinitely. It remains to be seen which other series will be restricted by the corona virus.
