hopefully not both season 1 and 2 premiers were boring due to it being so long, i like the 40min episodes better.
To be fair but Season 2 premier was after all the action of the finale of season 1. Season 1 premier wasn't bad though. In this case, the first episode will feature a lot of action and answer a lot of questions, so it being longer than normal shouldn't be boring.
Days Gone Bye (1x01) and What Lies Ahead (2x01) were both 90 minutes. That said, it's not unheard of...it also hasn't been done since Darabont was the showrunner. I think it would be great if they do it, I'm doubtful it'll happen.
Given that this is coming from Greg Nicotero (someone who is not a troll and is trustworthy), I believe what he is saying. I think we will still need it to be mentioned at the Comic-con for it to be confirmed though.

Agreed, more minutes means more time for more answers.
Answers for what? The only unknown is who kidnapped Beth, and I doubt that will be addressed in the premiere. The history of Terminus probably has some tired shade of grey to it to make them seem sympathetic. Everything else will just be mindless walkers killings, characters making stupid decisions, and Daryl hogging up the screen.
