AMC has concocted big plans for The Walking Dead Season 5 finale. These plans are so big that the final episode of this season will require 50 percent more time to properly tell its tale.
Earlier today AMC announced that The Walking Dead Season 5 finale has been extended fro 60 to 90 minutes in length. The extra 30 minutes will provide “extra walker-filled mayhem” and likely set the table for what’s to come in The Walking Dead Season 6.
In episode 11 of Season 5 that aired this past Sunday, Rick and his group finally reached the Alexandria safe zone and took a big step toward their next chapter by choosing to enter through its gates. With five episodes left in Season 5, expect Rick and company to spend a considerable amount of time in and around Alexandria and many new characters to be introduced.
There’s still the impending threat of whoever attacked Noah’s family’s settlement and halved a bunch of walkers. Also, don’t forget that Morgan is tracking that same group and knows Rick is headed north toward Washington, D.C. There are still plenty of storylines yet to come to a head.
The Walking Dead Season 5 finale will premiere on Sunday, March 29 at 9/8c on AMC, followed immediately by The Talking Dead and presumably some important guests.
