Walking Dead fans who like their episodes extra-lengthy are in for a treat late this Fall. Reportedly, The Walking Dead Season 8's midseason finale will run overtime, clocking in at 88 minutes including commercials. The episode will be directed by executive producer Greg Nicotero, who also helmed the first episode of Season 8.
Airing December 10, the yet-to-be-titled eighth episode of The Walking Dead Season 8 will be followed by an episode of The Talking Dead, set to air immediately after the installment at 10:28pm ET, as opposed to the usual 10:00pm ET slot.
Typically, The Walking Dead episodes have 42 to 45 minutes of content, so we expect the midseason finale to add up to 60 to 66 minutes, not including commercials.
Airing every Sunday on AMC, The Walking Dead is a production of Idiot Box Productions developed by Frank Darabont and starring Andrew Lincoln, Jon Bernthal, Sarah Wayne Callies, Laurie Holden, Jeffrey DeMunn, Steven Yeun, Chandler Riggs, Norman Reedus, Lauren Cohan, Danai Gurira, Michael Rooker, David Morrissey, Melissa McBride, Scott Wilson, Michael Cudlitz, Emily Kinney, Chad L. Coleman, Lennie James, Sonequa Martin-Green, Jeffrey Dean Morgan, Alanna Masterson, Josh McDermitt, Christian Serratos, Seth Gilliam and Ross Marquand.
