The Walking Dead Season Finale Will Be 90 Minutes Long
The Walking Dead has been building to the big Negan reveal all season, and now we'll have yet more build-up to that fateful final moment. AMC has just announced that the season finale will be 90 minutes long, as opposed to the usual 60 minutes. 

Granted, this might mean we'll see commercials approximately every five minutes, as was sort of the case with last season's super-sized finale, but it will be worth it, as we'll finally find out which major character won't make it through to season seven. And according to the cast, the episode will be absolutely brutal, even by Walking Dead standards. 

Opening quote
"I felt sick to my stomach when I read the script," Andrew Lincoln told EW. "It was the first day in the whole six years of working on The Walking Dead that I was late for work because I woke up in the middle of the night and I couldn't get back to sleep. I was so angry and frustrated and I felt sick. And that was just after reading it."

Opening quote
"[Hearing] the word 'finale' gives me a physical reaction because it's the hardest day on set that I've ever had in my life," said Lauren Cohan. "I never even imagined that as an actor you could have that experience. It's one of the most raw experiences that I think any of us have ever had. Andy talks about being late to work; I didn't want to go to work that day. It took a really, really long time for everybody to feel okay again after the finale, let's put it that way."
Closing quote


Possible spoilers ahead! (Click to reveal)


In the comics, Glenn is on the receiving end of Negan's barbed wire-covered baseball bat, Lucille, in one of the most iconic deaths in the entire series. However, his fake-out death earlier this season has many speculating that someone else will bite the bullet in the finale. Our money is on Daryl, but Maggie, Abraham, Carol, and Morgan are all emerging as somewhat likely contenders.
