It was announced back in April that AMC is expanding the world of "The Walking Dead" with a second spinoff series that will feature two young female protagonists and focus on the first generation to come-of-age in the apocalypse as we know it. Alexa Mansour, Nicolas Cantu, Hal Cumpston, Aliyah Royale and Annet Mahendru will lead the cast.
We don’t know all that much about the series other than the general approach, but it was announced at San Diego Comic-Con that Jordan Vogt-Roberts (Kong: Skull Island) will direct the pilot episode.
The 10-episode first season of the untitled series has begun productions and will premiere on AMC in Spring 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," co-creator Scott Gimple recently told EW. "Matt Negrete is one of the best writer-producers in TWD’s long history — 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."
Check out a first-look preview below, which introduces some of the characters and showcases some early concept art that suggests this series will be entirely different from "Walking Dead" viewers have grown accustomed to.
