Telltale’s ‘The Walking Dead: The Final Season’ release schedule ends series by Christmas

Telltale’s The Walking Dead will tug at your heartstrings one last time in a finale of four parts in total.

The next episode will release on September 25, and is titled “Suffer the Children,” which has the caution roadsign for children next to it 🚸. The two following that are “Broken Toys” for November 6, with a 🔥 emoji, with the last episode releasing on December 18: 😭 “Take Us Back.”


Some ballpark guesses as to what the emojis mean could be that wherever Clem is staying burns down (again), and then she reminisces on all of the friends lost during the zombie apocalypse (especially season 1’s Lee).

Personally, I’m waiting to play all of the episodes all at once in December. I find it to be a giant depressive and somehow cathartic thing to play all of them in a couple of days. Waiting to play the next episode a month or two after the last is too torturous to bare.

Plus, I find that if I’ve spent too much time in-between playing episodes, I’ll forget about things like minor characters and B-plots that inevitably end up being important come the final episode.

The first episode of Telltale’s The Walking Dead season 1 released in April of 2012, and immediately grabbed the world’s attention for its wonderful storytelling of Lee’s struggle during the outbreak of the zombie apocalypse.

Clem has taken over the reigns as the lead character of the series, bowing out slightly for Javi to take over during the third season. Fan-favorite The Walking Dead universe character Jesus played a pivotal role last season, and even flirted a bit with Javi.

Telltale’s The Walking Dead: The Final Season episode 1 released on August 14 for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC. A semi-complete series edition of some of Telltale’s The Walking Dead is available for those looking to catch up on seasons 1, 2, Michonne’s story, and the 400 days side story.
