AMC wants to give you even more zombie goodness. Today the channel has announced a The Walking Dead spinoff series is in the "initial stages of developing." Robert Kirkman, Gale Anne Hurd and David Alpert are all confirmed as executive produces and of course AMC Studios will produce. The new program is expected to hit your TV as soon as 2015.
AMC's president and general manager, Charlie Collier, said, "Building on the success of the most popular show on television for adults 18-49 is literally a no brainer." Collier also confirmed this will be an "entirely new story and cast of characters." The executive stated the world's a big place and they're excited to give everyone another "unforgettable view of the zombie apocalypse." Additionally, Kirkman says he's thrilled to create an all-new corner in the universe. "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."
The Walking Dead's fourth season will return on October 13th.
