Critic Reviews for The Walking Dead: Season 6

All Critics (24) | Top Critics (10)

There's few things on TV that possess that real sense of danger, but The Walking Dead has proven time and time again that it is happy to sacrifice its sacred cows. The only question with season six is who will be first on the chopping block.

Good or bad, digestible or not, The Walking Dead simply exists in its own atmosphere. Maybe that's reason enough to hold it to a higher standard. If nothing can stop you, then shouldn't everything be on the table?

What this spells out for the rest of the season - which of our heroes will survive, whether they'll stay in Alexandria for the long haul - isn't necessarily clear, but it's a great kick-off to Season 6.

Sunday's episode is exceptional, marred only in a few spots by padding that's inevitable with these supersized episodes.

Instead, we get the march to nothingness that is "Last Day on Earth", as unsatisfying and brazenly manipulative a finale as you'll watch on television this year.

February 11, 2020 | Full Review…

You have a season that meanders around, but is rarely boring, which we haven't always been able to say for The Walking Dead. But we can now.

Audience Reviews for The Walking Dead: Season 6


Super Reviewer

The Walking Dead has never been a bad show (with the arguable exception of its first season), but many of the decisions made in Season 6 do cause me to question why it is as successful as it is.


Super Reviewer

This season of Walking Dead has been very slow, not much going on and the things that do happen aren't very interesting. Still there are pure entertaining moments that you would expect from The Walking Dead, and man Negan looks intimidating. Cliffhanger was unnecessary. Unfortunately this season was not as good as previous installments.
