The pandemic-interrupted 10th season of “The Walking Dead” finally reaches its bloody conclusion on Sunday — a 19-month wait since its premiere that has only made the zombie apocalypse show more timely, according to its stars.اضافة اعلان

The comic book adaptation may be far from its ratings heyday, with popular hero Rick Grimes long departed, but it remains the most-watched series on American basic cable (excluding premium channels like HBO) as it approaches its much-hyped conclusion with the subsequent season 11.

“It’s more relevant than ever now during this pandemic,” Paola Lazaro, a newcomer this season as Juanita Sanchez, aka Princess, told AFP.

The series is “teaching you how to rebuild a society after things have been broken, or things have been torn apart,” she said.

“The Walking Dead” follows the gory adventures of a group of humans who have survived a zombie apocalypse.
