The Walking Dead Series Finale Gets Extended Runtime

The upcoming finale to The Walking Dead is set to be one of the show’s longest ever – after its runtime was confirmed in a report from Comic Book. The 90-minute finale, half an hour more than its usual 60-minute runtime, titled “Rest in Peace,” referring to the final comic book chapter of the same name, will air on Sunday, November 20.

Before the episode’s launch, the finale will be joined by a live event in Los Angeles, commencing with the TWD: Red Carpet Live pre-show across AMC and AMC+. After the finale concludes and we hear the show’s iconic theme song for the last time, an extended special episode of Talking Dead with Chris Hardwick will air, featuring a wealth of special guests. The finale was directed by horror veteran Greg Nicotero, who recently said he “felt the weight of pressure on me, and I’m proud of what we did.”

Angela Kang, who took the reins of showrunner in Season 9, previously said The Walking Dead “needs its own ending. But doors are left open, as they so often are in life, and as they were even in the ending of the comic.”

Seasons 1-10 and all episodes of Season 11 of The Walking Dead are available to stream on Disney+. What do you think of the eleventh season of The Walking Dead as the series approaches its inevitable conclusion? Feel free to give us your thoughts in the comment section below.
