Amazon Prime Video has acquired the UK TV rights to the new The Walking Dead spin-off series.

The third series from the horror universe is co-created by Scott M. Gimple, with Matt Negrete on board as co-creator and showrunner. The series will star Aliyah Royale, Alexa Mansour, Annet Mahendru, Nicolas Cantu, Hal Cumpston and Nico Tortorella. “TV audiences around the world have demonstrated their passion for The Walking Dead universe, and we are so excited to bring this next iteration to our Prime members,” says Brad Beale, Vice President of Worldwide Licensing for Amazon Prime Video. “An exciting and heartfelt survival story that will have our viewers sitting on the edge of their seats, this next series from the world of The Walking Dead will make an excellent addition to the growing catalogue of global event series available to Amazon customers.” The new series will feature two young female protagonists and focus on the first generation to come of-age in the apocalypse as we know it. Some will become heroes. Some will become villains. In the end, all of them will be changed forever. Grown-up and cemented in their identities, both good and bad.

The new series from the world of The Walking Dead is produced by AMC Studios and will be available on Prime Video across Asia-Pacific, the Middle East, Africa, and Europe (excluding Spain and Portugal).

Here’s the teaser trailer:

First look: The Walking Dead’s new spin-off shifts focus to youth

6th October 2019

As The Walking Dead prepares to return for its 10th season, AMC is already looking to its latest spin-off, unveiling a new trailer and images at New York Comic-Con.

Te untitled seres will shift the focus of the apocalyptic universe to young people trying to survive the zombie epidemic, with a smaller scale that follows two women in the first generation of people working to stay alive.

The cast was confirmed earlier this summer and includes Aliyah Royale (Iris) and Annet Mahendru (Huck), Alexa Mansour (Hope), Nicolas Cantu (Elton), Hal Cumpston (Silas) and Nico Tortorella (Felix).

The Walking Dead writer and producer Matt Negrete serves as showrunner, with franchise head Scott Gimple credited as co-creator. At the helm is Kong: Skull Island’s Jordan Vogt-Roberts.

Now, we have our first look at what’s in store, with the trailer revealing a group of youngsters braving the wider, dangerous world. The images give us familiar glimpses of a wasteland, including dilapidated trains and coaches, which will be set 10 years after the initial zombie outbreak – a similar place in the TWD timeline to the tenth season of the original parent show.

The trailer and images arrive as AMC also renews The Walking Dead for Season 11. The long-running programme, and its other spin-off, Fear the Walking Dead, will also be joined by an upcoming trilogy of films following Rick Grimes. This new spin-off is expected to debut in 2020.

Teaser drops for The Walking Dead’s other spin-off series

1st August 2019

The Walking Dead shows no signs of slowing down the expansion of its wider universe, with AMC unveiling the second – yes, second – spin-off series from the zombie smash hit.

The show is smaller in scale than The Walking Dead and Fear the Walking Dead. It will follow two women in the first generation of people trying to survive the undead apocalypse.

What if you grew up in a world of safety? And you decided to leave?

That’s the decision made by the show’s cast of characters, which includes Aliyah Royale (Iris) and Annet Mahendru (Huck), Alexa Mansour (Hope), Nicolas Cantu (Elton) and Hal Cumpston (Silas).

The Walking Dead writer and producer Matt Negrete serves as showrunner, with franchise head Scott Gimple credited as co-creator. At the helm is Kong: Skull Island’s Jordan Vogt-Roberts.

The series is expected to premiere in spring 2020, with no word yet on when – or, more importantly where – it will air in the UK. Here’s the teaser trailer:
