Make way for more walkers! ‘The Walking Dead’ will get a spin-off series and a whole new cast of characters, AMC announced on Sept. 16.
More and more TV shows are getting spin-offs — including AMC’s Breaking Bad and ABC Family’s Pretty Little Liars — and now The Walking Dead can be added to the list. AMC will be producing a “companion series” to their hit show, The Walking Dead, and we couldn’t be more thrilled! Read on for all the details!
‘The Walking Dead’ Spin-Off Coming To AMC
Three members of The Walking Dead team, Robert Kirkman, Gale Anne Hurd, and David Alpert, will serve as executive producers for the spin-off, so we know it’s going to be good!
The show itself will be taking on a new cast of zombie-fighting characters as opposed to giving a current cast member their own show.
“Building on the success of the most popular show on television for adults 18-49 is literally a no-brainer,” said AMC’s president Charlie Collier. “We look forward to working with Robert, Gale and Dave again as we develop an entirely new story and cast of characters. It’s a big world and we can’t wait to give fans another unforgettable view of the zombie apocalypse.”
Sounds like we can look forward to a fresh take on the zombie apocalypse and we’re so glad the new show is in the hands of trusted Walking Dead team members!
‘The Walking Dead’ Season 4 Sneak Peek Video — Carl Tries To Save Michonne
There’s only a few more weeks until the highly anticipated season four premiere of The Walking Dead, and we can’t wait!
In a sneak peek video, things look pretty chaotic as the walkers attack Michonne and Carl tries to save her.
“Things are going to be way crazier. It’s an escalation. It’s going to get insane this season,” said creator Robert Kirkman at Comic-Con.
It certainly looks insane so far! We can’t wait for the return of The Walking Dead on Sunday, October 13 at 9/8c.
