The Walking Dead is to get a spinoff series, AMC have confirmed.
The new show will exist in the same universe as the current series, but feature different characters. Robert Kirkman, Gale Anne Hurd and David Alpert are on board as executive producers. Charlie Collier, AMC’s president and general manager, commented on the new show:
“Building on the success of the most popular show on television for adults 18-49 is literally a no-brainer. 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.”
