The Walking Dead Spinoff: Confirmed, To Focus on Fresh "View of the Zombie Apocalypse"

by at . Comments

More zombies are on the way to AMC.

The network confirmed today that a Walking Dead "companion" series is in the works, with a trio of familiar names - Robert Kirkman, Gale Anne Hurd and David Alpert - on board to serve as executive producers.

“Building on the success of the most popular show on television for adults 18-49 is literally a no-brainer,” Charlie Collier, AMC’s president and general manager, 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 Walking Dead Season 4 kicks off on October 13, while Kirkman added via press release:

“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. 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.”

Plenty of more details will come out in subsequent weeks and months, but for now simply sound off:

In the wake of a Breaking Bad spinoff, are you now excited for a Walking Dead spinoff?
