AMC's ratings monster "The Walking Dead" has spawned a new series.
The spinoff-happy network announced on Monday that its in the early stages of developing a "companion series" for its zombie-filled primetime drama.
According to a statement, the new series will be executive produced by "Walking Dead" creator Robert Kirkman as well as current EPs Gale Anne Hurd and David Alpert.
“We look forward to working with Robert, Gale and Dave again as we develop an entirely new story and cast of characters," AMC's President and General Manager, Charlie Collier, said in the statement. "It’s a big world and we can’t wait to give fans another unforgettable view of the zombie apocalypse.”
Kirkman hints that while this new series will be set in the same world as the current "Walking Dead" drama, it'll have a greater sense of storytelling freedom.
"I couldn't be more thrilled about getting the chance to create a new corner of 'The Walking Dead' universe,” he said. “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" spinoff is aiming for a 2015 debut. In the meantime, the fourth season of "The Walking Dead" begins October 13 on AMC.
1. hacked in to phone stating I was paying my car totaling 9k next week cash
2. diamonds and baubles...everyone knows who foot the bill for htose
3. looks like another day of doing sh-t all day. ..
4. the 50k basement is on me...WHAT YOU HACK INTO PHONE CALLS MAKE SURE YOU ACCURATE.
report her as abuse.
this show teaches us all an important lesson: you need at least one redneck friend or you're dead!
You need at least one HILLBILLY friend! HUGE difference between the two!
im over zombie movies, like years ago, but....The Walking Dead is my show!!!
hon unless he begs for it and even that is pathetic
I I love zombies!! The first headline in every major newspaper should be the "ZOMBIE KILL OF THE DAY!" And above all else, remember rule #2..........DOUBLE TAP!!
FACT: GOD IS NOT DEAD.....THESE MOVIES ARE FOR DEVIL LOVERS AND WORSHIPERS.
You're kidding.... right?
He does not look happy in that picture
Sky, clearly you don't understand the difference between the words 'Fact' and 'Opinion'.
Also, I'm slightly curious as to what you define as a 'devil', since the complete heavy handedness of your statement leads me to assume that you find all religions other than your own narrow belief system as either flawed or 'evil'.
FACT: Sky is a close minded religious idiot.
What gets my attention is the large number of devil, witch, murder and, in general, evil and violent films cranked out on TV. Any wonder we have increasing mass murder events only to be accepted [as in China] as done by a derranged person. When in fact, he/she has been taught how to carry out their deed by the media or a "religion."
is almost done and just put in her folder with all logins...she exited out
Sky, do you know how bloodthirsty God really is?
Check your bible, or read this for speeding things up a bit:
P.S.: Just before you condemn me an Atheist, I am currently a non-practicing Christian. There is a difference.
now go send letters out asking people for money funds ... while I write the check for 50k this morning.
I love October, The start of Hockey and Zombies.
oh, i love mumy that's what i wanna be
yes the walking dead is the BEST zombie show in the world
eek that dead guy is having a bad day...ewwww
Is this show really that good? I mean how many times can you watch people run from/shoot at/get killed by undead humans? There must be a serious side-plot with ludicrous $ex or something.
Meh, it IS really good! Series 3 is not as good as first 2, but still def's worths the watch. Watch it! Join us!
pluse Maggie is smoking hot.
some dude told her she was hot for her age and would do her cuz she was simply nice.
I agree. I did watch the first couple of shows BUT REALLY.....why waste time looking at the SAME JUNK over and over again ?
I think I'd rather be watching a Disney graduate make weird faces. [Just joking !]
I've always wondered what became of the couple in the Walking Dead Webisode "Cold Storage"... they leave in a van, low on fuel, and uncertain of their future. I'd love to see this spin-off version follow their journey.
Maybe in a few seasons time, you'd see the two worlds overlap for an episode or two throughout... like they've done with the CSI spin-offs. Maybe the radio broadcast the prison group hears in Season 4 is this group?!
How about a show about gay zombies sturggling for acceptance and tolerance in a world that hates them. Now that is good television.
and totally unbelievable.
Walking Dead: Detroit. They'd save a ton of money on set decoration and VFX since the city already looks like apocalypse happened there. It'd also be a nice change of pace from Atlanta. I want to see zombies in the snow!
So instead of hiring extras to play zombies they could just film homeless people scrounging around for scraps! Blurr the lens a little and tada! Zombies!
Well, the people of Detroit could certainly use the work and it wouldn't hurt tourism. Senoia GA is now the 3rd most visited city in the state behind Atlanta and Savannah because of Walking Dead filming there. Detroit also give amazing tax breaks to productions so it would be a cost saver all around to film there.
So this idea is tangable and could really work! Well I hope the producers are reading this! TWD Detroit has a good ring to it too!
What if we conk out before 2015 gets here? They need to start filming it faster.
@Jeff – conk out?
Conk out = die.
I love zombies!! An episode told from a zombie pov would be killer!
The pop culture zombie genre is overused, tired, unimaginative. So are vampires. Come on, Hollywood, something imaginative?
Being bored and synical i SOooooo early 90's dude.
It's cynical, and yes the zombie/vampire TV shows are all boring and gay as hell.
@DaveinFlorida – you must be watching a different type of zombie show. I have yet to see one gay element in The Walking Dead.
Seriously, anyone who uses gay to demean anyone or anything has zero credibility.
Agree! Using gay as a derogatory word is something only 10 year old brats do.
You're both gay, and so are zombies.
Yeah...Vampires is a rather dead genre. The zombie genre has hardly warmed up.
@DaveinFlorida – your Liberace gay.
Did any of you watch "World Z"? (I think that's what it was called)
Hi Peace! HOpe youre well, I tried to watch World War Z twice and fell asleep both times. It wasn't what I was expecting. It was too "busy" if you get me. Too much going on and no suspense. Just a lot of children and family moments. eh!
Hi MAP! I am well, thanks! You? I watched that movie last pm. It was ok, I really wasn't sure what I was getting into, tho. Could have been worse, could have been better...ya know?
Boo hoo...someone called someone else GAY....I think this whole "gay movement" is pretty gay. And by "gay", I mean boring and lame. That's how we used "gay" in my neighborhood...I don't care if you like licking twinkies or tuna. Sticks and stones break your bones....zombies eat you.
How about from the zombie perspective for an episode? A victim, chased, attacked, suffers, dies, reanimates, but has that "spark that remains" and realizes it too is dying inside......
OMG great idea! I can just imagine how creepy it would be to see through the zombie eyes and all you hear is that horrible moaning sound they make. Horror films are always good when they show the view through the killer. Think Halloween's opening scene, or Jaws. I hope they read this!
They did that already in the movie "Colin" the entire movie takes place from the zombie's POV.
But that was British! We need an American version.
There is a segment in V/H/S 2 that has a guy get bit, reanimate then go on a zombie rampage...there is your American version.
Can you explain what V/H/S means? That's not the Walking dead is it? Am I.... dumb?
I recommend "Warm Bodies".... very sweet movie about a zombie who still has that spark and looking for love...
Yes, we need an American version. Kind of like we needed a remake of Karate Kid...and Annie...and Total Recall. Because we have no original thoughts in Hollywood anymore, so they just remake everything and ruin it. And instead of having a straight white lead actor...lets make it a gay black lesbian, because we want everyone to feel wanted.
I'm from Canada. Us Canadians are just better and nice than you. Hosers.
You can have Canada and your mosquito infested forests, terrible football, and Red Green.
2015 is a long time from now. That is really really gay.
Something to look forward to, I guess.
I know you're Canadian, so it's not a language issue. Why do you sound like a petulant 12 year old?
Is he really Canadian? He sounds American to me!
Yes, Canadia, the entire 4th dimension is gay. To be specific, Time is Lesbian.
"Gay?" Really? I think someone has some trouble looking in the mirror...
Walking Dead Spinoff? Bring it on. Let's call it the 2014 mid-term elections!
Was Jesus the first zombe?
No, Jesus was not the first zombie...however he was the first real brewmaster.
That's basically how I explained Easter to my 4 year old.
No Jesus was not even close to be a zombie, Actually he Resurrect in a heavenly body (an incorruptible body) he was the first to do that, death was not able to contain him because is God...please consider this my friend :)
Watch out, the nurses have let ivan use the computer in the activities room this excercize hour. Ivan, take your pills and report to ward C.
I look forward to "The Walking Poop" spinoff series.
No doubt the spin off will be a fine series for me to poop on.
Let's get a big bowl of poopcorn and some soda poop and watch The Walking Poop.
I'll bring some poopsicles and poop tarts.
I can just imagine the trailer, something lurking in the dark, something moist and smelly. DONT. TRY. TO. RUN. FROM. THE.... WALKING POOP!
Look at all the adults on the internet commenting on poop. What a useless world we live in. (and MAP is gay)
You know what would go well with this? A large, tasty pu pu platter from my favorite Chinese chef, Hu Flung Pu.
"a large, tasty pu pu platrer" I nearly spat my coffee out while reading this hahahaha!
Wow, seven whole exclamation marks must mean you REALLY mean it. Too bad the long hair hippie can't speak for himself, huh? Needs a hero like you to ride to his defense? Geez, I mean jesus, if he needs YOU to defend him why should I worry standing in front of a clown like that? No exclamation point needed.
@annonymous coward – THANKS FOR THE COMPLIMENT! At least I have an a ss!
BY all means, do not make "fum" of Jesus.
@rick – are you really that big of a Jebus nutjob as to rag on The Walking Dead? We already have a Christian version of a zombie with Pat Robertson....so you should be familiar with the zombie concept as much as anyone....and you seemingly approve of that. That you are so blind to think yours is the only possible religion or way shows the reason why religions should be banished.
@gregingso actually Rick is not defending Jesus, because God don't need anyone to defend him, Rick is concern about the big spiritual mistake people are making writing bad things, all people is gonna give an account to Him "Jesus" in the judgement day...just be very careful when you write about God, he loves you and he don't wants you to die in your sins
gregingso...God bless man :)
Um............ok. *backing away slowly*
@ican – this is a message board on the subject of the walking dead. Not 7th Heaven, not Touched by an angel, not the Brady Bunch. Take your crazy Jesus talk elsewhere where we can easily ignore it. God is dead. Jesus was just a man.
