With how widely popular The Walking Dead has become, a spin-off is the next logical conclusion for AMC. TV Line (via IGN) is reporting that the spin-off may indeed be a sequel.
“In a recent interview with IGN, series creator Robert Kirkman — who is shepherding the spin-off along with fellow Walking Dead EPs Gale Anne Hurd and David Alpert — confirmed that the new series will be set in a ‘different location’ and feature ‘completely different people,’ adding. ‘It definitely won’t be set in Georgia… It’s important to us that this show exists on its own. The spin-off has to be a show worthy of existing, or else we’ve all sold out’.”
The buzz is that the series will be about the early days of the epidemic. As both an avid reader of the comic and watcher of the series, I don’t need an explanation as to how the world fell apart. The series is about what the living do next. There doesn’t have to be a why or how the dead continue to walk. The quest for what we do next is the lure to both the book and the TV show.
The spin-off is set for 2015 which means all this could change. Nothing is ever set in stone. What do you think Maniacs? Sound off below!
