Many fans are excited about the possibility of Negan’s debut during The Walking Dead’s season 6 finale, as his appearance will start a chain reaction of events that will leave the AMC show much different than it ever was before. While there is still a chance he could appear before that, speculation is that his first episode on-screen will be a major game-changer and leave fans breathless.

As usual, when The Walking Dead has a super-sized episode, the post-show Talking Dead will be pushed back. Instead of airing at the usual 10 pm/9c time slot, it will be a half hour later to accommodate for the longer episode.

If you still haven’t gotten your fix of zombies by the time you’ve watched all that, Fear The Walking Dead will air its first episode of season 1 at that time, but it isn’t known if that will be the start of another marathon or if it is just a single episode.
