Critic Consensus: Six seasons in, The Walking Dead is still finding ways to top itself, despite slow patches that do little to advance the plot.

Critic Reviews for The Walking Dead Season 6

All Critics (23) | Top Critics (9)

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.

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.

While season six may be a step up from the previous season in several regards, including story, characters, and entertainment value, there are still a number of problems in all of these areas and more that continue to hold it back from its full potential.

Call it escalation, maybe in response to the tepid spinoff Fear the Walking Dead, but Walking Dead in its sixth season premiere wants you to remember the nightmare started here, and this show owns it.

Oct 10, 2014 | Rating: B | Full Review…

It's taken us six seasons to get to a point where we know this much about the characters. A better show would have gotten us there sooner. Maybe "The Walking Dead" has finally turned the corner.

Oct 14, 2015 | Full Review…

The Walking Dead looks very much at the top of its game, with strong character material mixed with a massive set piece in the extended premiere.

Top Critic

The Walking Dead, more than any other show, takes responsibility for its carnage. The characters who remain carry the burden of those who do not.

Audience Reviews for The Walking Dead: Season 6

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.

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.

It has its highest of highs and lowest of lows throughout this entire season. The Walking Dead Season 6 holds its own and is enough to provide to its audience and die-hard fans the bloody-good action, riveting drama and epic sequences, even if it may not be as thrilling as previous seasons. 4/5
