The 10th season of The Walking Dead is currently eight episodes in and has certainly delivered on its promise to shock viewers. With high-profile deaths already occurring in the form of Siddiq (played by Avi Nash) and Dante (Juan Javier Cardenas), fans are desperate to see the repercussions they’ll have on the communities. However, they’ve been left waiting as episode nine didn’t air in the show’s typical weekly slot on AMC this week.
For each of the eight episodes of season 10 so far, The Walking Dead has aired on a Sunday evening on AMC.
Only in the USA, each episode would begin at 9pm ET on AMC.
Fans in the UK have been waiting for the following Monday each of the past eight weeks to watch the new episodes across the Atlantic on Fox.
However, TWD wasn’t on this week (Sunday, December 1) and there’s a good reason why.

Season 10, episode nine didn’t air on AMC or Fox UK this week because the series is currently on its midseason break.

In fact, every season since season two has been subject to a brief break at the halfway point.
However, season 10 is currently on one of the longest midseason breaks in the show’s history.
