Fans of AMC’s zombie hit series The Walking Dead had to wait extra long for the finale to season 10, and they have been waiting to see Carol in action again. It was supposed to air in March, but it got postponed during the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic. The finale is still a few months away, but at least Melissa McBride gives fans some hints about what’s going to happen, especially with Carol.


McBride was part of The Walking Dead’s San Diego Comic-Con@Home panel on July 24. She previewed the season finale, and season 11 with showrunner Angela Kang. The season 10 finale airs Oct. 4 and six bonus season 10 episodes are coming in 2021.


Carol has come a long way on The Walking Dead. One of the few characters to survive since the very beginning, Carol began as an abused wife who became empowered through zombie survival. Of course, the apocalypse is traumatizing in other ways so McBride acknowledges Carol has been through the wringer.

She’s kind of in the same place but different. Same water, different boat. I don’t know, but she’s trying to make some amends here where we left off. At the beginning she was out getting respite, trying to find perspective, trying to get out of the eye of the storm. And then she comes back and she’s just blinded by this enormous grief and vengeance and justice at the detriment to her friendship with Daryl and the group. A lot of things blow up. She blows up a lot of things.


“What I loved about the end episode was the talk that she had with Kelly,” McBride said. “She needed that so badly just to be reminded that she is a lone wolf. And to not lose yourself. Just embrace that about yourself and be okay with it.”
