2nd Walking Dead TV Series Coming

In development

There may be no room left in hell, but AMC has more room for The Walking Dead. AMC has announced that in addition to expanding Robert Kirkman’s Walking Dead universe with video games, and a web series, they will add another TV series too! Here is the official statement from AMC. 

“AMC announced today that the network is in the initial stages of developing a companion series to its original drama series The Walking Dead, which premiered on AMC in October of 2010. The Walking Dead is currently the #1 show on television among adults 18-49. Robert Kirkman, Gale Anne Hurd and David Alpert are on board as executive producers, with AMC Studios set to produce. The companion series has a target on-air date of 2015.

“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.”

Do you think this is a good idea Maniacs? It isn’t until 2015, leaving Kirkman and AMC plenty of time to seed the current series for a spin off.  Sound off below!

The Walking Dead Season 4 begins on October 13th.

The novels were good companion pieces,and he has always talked about how many stories about the never-ending zombie movie he has rattling around.  A great way to move stories and set pieces about without the always there comparisons between mediums.  Gimme some mo'.

I would love for it to be an entirely different part of the country. No connection at all to the other.

Excellent news!

I've always wanted to know what goverment/military agencies that are left are doing. I would think somewhere there are people who have safety, shelter, labs, manpower etc. and how they are conducting their lives.

Too much of a good thing, maybe? I mean, they've had quite a few problems making the show with the entire graphic series to follow, as it is - now they're going to try and come up with new material?

Don't get me wrong, I think this could be very cool, but while I enjoy the show, I've certainly had many issues with it, too.

Let see some MEGA-Cities!!!

Not sure if this is good news...that's when you start getting too much stuff of the same on TV and one of these will suffer in the long run.

Will wait and see but, sceptic on this one.

I have to say, I'm with jedibanner on this one.  More is not always better, and there is definitely (especially in T.V.) such a thing as doing too much.

I'd be perfectly content for them to just focus on the current series, continue making it awesome, and ride that horse into the sunset for all it's worth.

Maybe a 10 episode story on what happened to Sophia after she disappeared since it took that long to find her.

 I suppose with like two or three CSIs, two or three NCISs and like a dozen Law and Order series, I suppose a second Walking Dead series wouldn't hurt.
