We know, we know, The Walking Dead Season 5 hasn’t even kicked off yet (that happens on October 12 at 9 p.m. ET) but it’s never too early to start planning ahead with an action-packed show such as this one, so that got us thinking about the midseason finale, which almost always leaves us at the edge of our seat. More specifically, when can we expect the TWD Season 5 midseason finale to air? Read on for our theories and best guess!
As we said, Season 5 formally kicks off on October 12 after a tough nearly seven-month absence, and based on what AMC has done in years past we’re fairly confident we’ll get seven additional one-hour installments following the highly-anticipated season opener. The first eight episodes of the season typically run uninterrupted (as they did last year) but there’s always a small chance AMC might elect to air a two-hour episode and/or then decide to air a rerun one week. Remember, there were rumors that the Season 5 premiere might be supersized, though it now appears that was just wishful thinking on our part.
