The Walking Dead it’s finished, but AMC just doesn’t want to let go of its favorite creature. Twelve years have passed since the airing of the first episode, many leading characters have died, and viewers have also gradually evaporated, going from ten million in the sixth season (all thanks to the super villain Negan) to 2 million in the last 24 episodes. A now monstrous number (it should be said) for a series, but made necessary for the costs (and not to split the season).
Rest in peacethe grand finale of the eleventh season, therefore closed a long parenthesis for AMC, which in the meantime has signed an agreement with Fox, Disney and Netflix to bring The walking dead worldwide. And it won’t end there, as Robert Kirkman’s comic book universe will be expanded in the years to come with new projects already in the works.
Fear the Walking Dead, the first spin-off of the saga, will continue in 2023 with the eighth season. Initially set in Los Angeles, the prequel series (which has a soundtrack signed by Atticus Ross) follows the vicissitudes of an extended family dealing with the onset of the zombie apocalypse. Also World Beyondthe two-season miniseries aired between 2020 and 2021, paved the way for projects that will explore the events of the Civic Republic Military (Crm).
A plan started by the third spin-off Tales of the Walking Dead, which aired this summer, and which will continue in April 2023 with dead city, a series that will focus on the characters of Maggie and Negan, played by Lauren Cohan and Jeffrey Dean Morgan. The plot will develop in a New York now transformed by the zombie apocalypse.
It is also planned Daryl Dixon, spin-off on the character of the same name. Dixon, played by Norman Reedus, is the undisputed protagonist of the mother series with Rick Grimes, although neither he nor his brother Merle appear in the original comic. Finally it is also planned Rick and Michonnewhich will tell the story of the protagonists played by Andrew Lincoln and Danai Gurira.
