The Walking Dead : AMC Developing New Spin-Off Series!
AMC has announced that they are in the early stages of developing a spin-off series for The Walking Dead. The companion series is aiming to premier in 2015, with Robert Kirkman, Gale Anne Hurd, and David Alpert as executive producers.
“Building on the success of the most popular show on television for adults 18-49 is literally a no-brainer,” AMC’s president & general manager Charlie Collier said in a statement. “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.”
The new series, which has yet to be given a title, will be set in the same world as The Walking Dead, but with stories about a different group of survivors.
“After 10 years of writing the comic book series and being so close to the debut of our fourth, and in my opinion, best season of the TV series, I couldn’t be more thrilled about getting the chance to create a new corner of The Walking Dead universe,” Kirkman said. “The opportunity to make a show that isn’t tethered by the events of the comic book, and is truly a blank page, has set my creativity racing.”
Season Four of The Walking Dead begins on AMC on Sunday October 13th
