"Once upon a time, the end of the world was our beginning."
Earlier this year, AMC announced they're expanding "The Walking Dead" universe with another spinoff series, and last night, during The Walking Dead Mid-Season 10 finale, the title for the series was revealed as "The Walking Dead: World Beyond" in a new teaser trailer.
AMC also announced that Emmy-winner Julia Ormond (Temple Grandin, "Mad Men") has joined the cast of "The Walking Dead: World Beyond", which is currently filming in and around Richmond, VA and set to premiere in spring 2020. A series regular, Ormond will play Elizabeth, the charismatic leader of a large, sophisticated and formidable force.
"I’m so thrilled to be working with The Walking Dead team -- I absolutely love how they write for women in particular; a lovely, talented cast and great to be back with AMC," said Ormond
Co-created by Scott M. Gimple and Showrunner Matt Negrete, "The Walking Dead: World Beyond" also stars Aliyah Royale, Alexa Mansour, Annet Mahendru, Nicolas Cantu, Hal Cumpston and Nico Tortorella.
Also joining the show’s series regulars in recurring guest roles this season are Natalie Gold (Birdman, Unsane) as Lyla, a mysterious figure operating in the shadows on behalf of the cause she believes in; Al Calderon (Step Up: High Water) as Barca; Scott Adsit ("Veep", "30 Rock") as Tony; and Ted Sutherland (Fear Street, Rise) as Percy.
The series will focus on the first generation raised in the zombie apocalypse. Some will become heroes. Some will become villains. In the end, all of them will be changed forever. Grown-up and cemented in their identities, both good and bad.
Produced and distributed by AMC Studios, the series is executive produced by co-creators Gimple and Showrunner Negrete, Robert Kirkman, Gale Anne Hurd, David Alpert and Brian Bockrath.
The series will be available on Amazon Prime Video across Asia-Pacific, the Middle East, Africa and Europe; AMC Networks International will air the series on AMC in Latin America, Spain and Portugal.
