When does The Walking Dead return? (AMC)

This first half of The Walking Dead‘s Season 7 has been pretty epic. We lost some very beloved characters and had some scenes that are still haunting some fans’ nightmares. On top of that, we were introduced to Negan, who is portrayed perfectly, and Ezekiel, who has quickly become a fan favorite. But now that the first half of the season is ending far too quickly, when will the show return for the final eight episodes of Season 7?

Although the show only announced that it was returning in February, we can look at previous seasons to get a better idea of the exact date.

In previous years, the second half of each season started in February, no matter whether the midseason finale was aired in November or December. Season 1 is the only exception, and that’s because it was only six episodes long. Here’s when the midseason premiere aired for previous seasons:

  • Season 2 – February 12, 2012
  • Season 3 – February 10, 2013
  • Season 4 – February 9, 2014
  • Season 5 – February 8, 2015
  • Season 6 – February 14, 2016

If you want to analyze this a little bit more, The Walking Dead’s second half of every season premiered the second Sunday of February, every season except Season 1. So if we continue that same pattern, then the show will be returning most likely on February 12, 2017.
