An extra 30 minutes will be added on

The season six finale of The Walking Dead will last for not 60 but 90 minutes.

It’s the third episode in season six to gain the extra time, following on from the season premiere and the ‘Here’s Not Here’ episode.

Audiences are widely expecting the arrival of Jeffrey Dean Morgan’s portrayal of Negan in the 16th episode of sixth season.

Speaking to Comicbook.com, actor Lennie James said of the arrival: “It is one of the greatest introductions of a character that I can remember in any television series, let alone in our television series. It’s a phenomenal entrance. I don’t want to build it up too much but it’s probably to late now. It’s amazing.

For me, it was two things really. One was it was a sense of, “Oh, my god. That’s gonna be amazing.” Two was a desire to see it come to fruition and, from all intents and purposes and everything I know, it’s fantastic. Jaws are gonna drop and people are gonna lose their shit, if you don’t mind me saying. It’s gonna blow some people’s minds and break some people’s hearts.”

Actress Melissa McBride also commented on the season six finale, explaining that after she read the script she “couldn’t say anything” and she felt like she had “dropped into a blackhole.”
