The episode is expected to generate more than a million additional digital views, and capped a season that again saw "The Walking Dead" as the #1 show on television among adults 18-49, with an average live+3 viewership across the season's 16 episodes of 18 million total viewers, 11.5 million adults 18-49 and 11.3 million adults 25-54.

"We know how rare it is to have the #1 show on television for four years running and to share a season six finale on AMC with more than 18 million fans, to say nothing of the passionate and appreciated conversations that followed. So, as we close this season, first and foremost, a heartfelt 'thank you' is on all of our minds," said Charlie Collier, president of AMC, SundanceTV and AMC Studios. "Thank you to everyone who makes 'The Walking Dead' possible, from those working in the Los Angeles-Senoia-New York 'zombie triangle' to our fans around the world. We now put down Lucille for a while and leave the 'at bats' to baseball until our October return."
