How Long is the Final Episode of The Walking Dead? Runtime Confirmed

November 2022 will forever be known as a bittersweet month for The Walking Dead fans, as we say goodbye to the long-running show but welcome a host of spin-offs to come. Before the finale arrives, we confirm how long the final episode of The Walking Dead will be with a confirmed runtime.

First premiering on Halloween 2010, The Walking Dead has been on the air for twelve years, spanning eleven seasons with the third part of Season 11 airing just now.

Initially developed by Frank Darabont with Angela Kang now serving as showrunner, The Walking Dead is based on the comic book series of the same name by Robert Kirkman and stars Norman Reedus, Melissa McBride, Lauren Cohan, Danai Gurira, Josh McDermitt, Ross Marquand, and Jeffrey Dean Morgan.

How Long is the Final Episode of The Walking Dead? confirmed that the final episode of The Walking Dead will be 90 minutes long with commercials, or 1 hour and 30 minutes.

As expected, this will be the longest season finale of the show thus far, as Episode 24 is being classed as an extended episode. Previous season finales hit around the 50-minute mark.

The series finale will be directed by The Walking Dead veteran Greg Nicotero and it is expected to pave the way for further spin-off shows to come.
