“The Walking Dead” mid-season finale: AMC shines in its (very) slow-moving “last season”

Read Time:2 Minute, 0 Second



The show ended its first eight episodes on Sunday. The other 16 episodes-usually divided into two seasons in length, divided into similar increments-will be broadcast next year. The show will not return until February because it has ended one of its usual suspense.

Although it’s easy to understand why AMC insists and wants to extend this long-running franchise as much as possible, so far, the 24 episode “grand finale” lacks any real sense of urgency or motivation. .

During this period, fans will enjoy a pair of spin-off dramas, “The Walking Dead: Beyond the World”, which will return on October 10th, and “The Walking Dead,” which will begin the seventh season next week (but it is already available for subscribers of the streaming service AMC+ ).

Although the show’s ratings have declined with other linear TV shows, “The Walking Dead” has a reliable trend almost every week, which proves that even after many years, there is still a fanatical fan base at its core.

However, any enthusiasm surrounding the idea of ​​the “last season” has faded, because the scattered story unfolds in multiple ways, and a new group of villains, like the last few seasons, have not reached the best level of the early ones.

Also, don’t forget the planned “The Walking Dead” movie, starring Andrew Lincoln and Danai Gurilla, as Rick Grimes and Mitchon, which was announced when Lincoln left the series three years ago. ; And a spin-off series featuring Darryl (Norman Redus) and Carol (Melissa McBride), which is an important part of the pillars that survived the flagship drama.
Considering his marketing methods in the last few episodes, Lincoln’s departure represents one of the more prominent tactics performed by the show, and Gu Ruila’s exit last year will only exacerbate the void left by the loss of the main role. Lauren Cohan’s return as Maggie helps—especially understandable in her cautious relationship with Negan (Jeffrey Dean Morgan)—but not enough to offset these losses.

Taking inventory of all these activities, the most important thing is that even if the finish line is in sight, the direction of the show has not yet become the focus. This means that the lower third of the “last season” in February will mark the beginning of the end of “The Walking Dead”, in fact, if history has any guidance, it’s not even.
