A second spin-off series inspired by The Walking Dead is set to hit TV.
The hit zombie drama, which debuted in 2010, spawned 2015’s Fear the Walking Dead, and now executives at America’s AMC network have announced a brand new project, which will centre on two young women coming of age amid the franchise’s zombie outbreak.
Created by AMC’s chief content officer Scott M. Gimple and The Walking Dead writer/producer Matt Negrete, the new show will begin filming this summer and debut in 2020.
“Showing audiences an unseen pocket of The Walking Dead universe steeped in a new mythology is a very cool way to celebrate a ‘Decade of the Dead’ on TV and over 15 years of Robert Kirkman’s brilliant comic,” said Gimple in a press release. “Matt Negrete is one of the best writer-producers in TWD’s long history and I’m thrilled to be working beside him to tell stories unlike we’ve seen before, taking our first step into an even larger world.”
