One of the longest stretches for Walking Dead fans is that time between the mid-season finale and the mid-season premiere of the show. Often, the mid-season finale ends with a cliffhanger, so fans are left waiting for several weeks to find out if Daryl Dixon or someone else is still alive.
At the New York Comic Con earlier today, AMC officially announced the air date for The Walking Dead Season 5 mid-season premiere. After the show wraps up the first half of the season in 2014, the mid-season premiere for Season 5 will air on Sunday, February 8, 2015.
February 8 just happens to be the week after the 2015 Super Bowl, which airs on February 1, so fans won't have to decide between the big game and The Walking Dead.
The Walking Dead Season 5 premiere airs this Sunday, October 12, 2014 at 9 PM ET on AMC.
