The Walking Dead to Super Size Premiere, Take Lengthy Hiatus

at . Comments

AMC has announced very good news and very bad news regarding The Walking Dead.

First, the very good: the drama will return on October 16 with a 90-minute episode.

Now, for the less than very good: after airing six consecutive episodes, the show will take a lengthy hiatus and then return on February 12 to finish off the season.

This does, however, does guarantee no confusing interruptions from week to week. A pair of six-episodes stints of zombie killing and survivor drama? I'll take it.
