The Walking Dead universe is constantly expanding, and AMC’s bosses just revealed that another spin-off for the popular zombie show will be out next year.
According to the network’s official release, this brand new series will focus on “the first generation to come-of-age in the apocalypse as we know it.” It will follow two young female protagonists, but it’s unclear if we already met them.
David Madden, president of programming for AMC Networks and AMC Studios, believes this spin-off will excite passionate fans of the original series since it’s going to explore many uncharted territories.
“We’re thrilled that the Dead will keep walking into a new corner of the post-apocalyptic world, a corner that will present stories and characters unlike any that The Walking Dead has dramatized thus far,” said Madden in an official statement.
Matt Negrete, who has been a writer and producer on The Walking Dead, will serve as showrunner of this exciting spin-off. Production of the show, which is set for a 2020 premiere, will kick off later this year in Virginia.
