The Walking Dead’s season 8 midseason finale is going to go into overtime, which means that fans can expect to see the show go into overdrive before the hiatus.
Longer runtime for The Walking Dead? Yes, please.
We’re only three episodes into The Walking Dead’s eighth season but there is a lot to look forward to with news that the midseason finale is going to be supersized. That’s right, instead of roughly 45 minutes packed into a one-hour time slot, this extended episode will have 88 minutes, meaning a roughly full hour of The Walking Dead. The season finale of Talking Dead will air immediately following the extended episode, at approximately 10:30pm ET.
Once again the extended episode of the season, the title and synopsis of which haven’t been released yet, will be directed by Greg Nicotero, who directed several of the extended episodes in season 7.
While Fear the Walking Dead had two “2-hour” episodes by pairing up the first two episodes and the last two episodes of season 3B, rather than extending each episode’s run time. 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. We can only imagine what an extended midseason finale might mean for the story. 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?
