Extended midseason finale for The Walking Dead announced

Extended midseason finale for The Walking Dead announced”

Instead of the usual one-hour timeslot (via ComicBook), the eighth episode of season eight will run for 88 minutes including ad breaks.

AMC's "The Walking Dead" seemed to be following a downward trajectory, as its ratings had dropped further for season 8's third episode, titled "Monsters" and aired last Sunday, Nov. 5. Talking Dead will follow the episode, airing at 10:28 pm ET, rather than its regularly scheduled 10:00 pm ET slot.

Whilst plenty of significant events have taken place in the three episodes aired thus far, The Walking Dead has built a reputation for explosive premiere, midseason finale and season finale episodes.

The episode is directed by executive producer and visual effects guru Greg Nicotero, who also directed Episode 8x01 and is now working on the Season 8 finale. The great thing about these extended episodes for The Walking Dead is that we still get a full season with longer episodes.

An extended midseason finale of The Walking Dead is brilliant because that means that we'll see more of All Out War before the show goes onto its winter hiatus.

The show's current season might be resorting to bad habits, with a shuffling pace hidden beneath the rattling gunshots, but the show is sticking to tradition elsewhere by extending the running time of the mid-season finale. Will we be left with a colossal cliffhanger, or will we have at least a bit of resolution before we close this chapter of the story?
