‘The Walking Dead’ Season 6 Finale Will Be 90 Minutes
As bummed as we are that The Walking Dead Season 6 ends in less than two weeks time, we take solace in the fact that the season will end with an action-packed, supersized episode.
After much speculation about the April 3 installment, AMC has confirmed (via Entertainment Weekly) that just like last year’s Season 5 finale, the Season 6 ender will clock in at 90 minutes, as opposed to the standard 60.

Given Season 6, Episode 16 — reportedly titled “Last Day on Earth,” according to The Spoiling Dead Fans — is Negan’s first episode, we see why the 30 minute increase is important. Negan is a character TWD fans have been anticipating for years, and as brutal as he may be, he’s worthy of an extended introduction.
In the TWD comics, Negan kills Glenn upon first meeting him. For a long while we believed the show would follow that path, but as the finale draws closer we grow less and less sure Glenn will be Negan’s first victim.

With Carol Peletier now on the run she could be an easy target for the baseball bat-wielding baddie, but there’s also speculation Daryl Dixon could be killed instead of Glenn.
90 minutes to watch one of our favorite characters die a savage death? We can’t wait!
The Walking Dead Season 6 airs Sunday nights at 9 p.m. ET on AMC.
