"The Walking Dead" is getting a supersized episode, with AMC announcing that the zombie drama will air a 90-minute installment to cap its fifth season.

The season five finale, set to air in March, will be an extended episode focusing on the group's struggles to fit in in Alexandria, the new settlement in which they hope to make a home. According to the official synopsis, "Daryl finds himself in trouble while out on the run. Meanwhile, in Alexandria, Rick and his group continue to feel like outsiders as danger lurks near the gates."

In episode 11, the last installment to air so far, the group had just arrived at Alexandria, after being led there by mysterious newcomer Aaron. Rick, who initially resisted joining the community, reluctantly agreed to try out the change of scenery, though if past interactions with strangers are any indication, the group is probably in for a nasty surprise soon.

Season five of "The Walking Dead" wraps up on March 29 at 9 p.m. It will be directly followed by "Talking Dead" at 10:30 p.m.
