Here’s some hot news for all you Walking Dead fanatics (that includes me) – AMC has announced that they are working on a sister series to the show that will follow the exploits of other survivors dealing with the same threats Rick and and his group face every day. Here’s an excerpt from today’s pres release:
“Building on the success of the most popular show on television for adults 18-49 is literally a no-brainer,” said Charlie Collier, AMC’s president and general manager. “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.”
“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,” said Kirkman. “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.”
This is hugely exciting news, especially since we can see this awesome world expand in some hopefully pretty unique and innovative directions.
