AMC Adds A ‘Walking Dead’ Spinoff To The Television Franchise
With Breaking Bad coming to an end, AMC is one step closer to just going all in and renaming itself TWD. The US cable network is planning yet another series that will be a “companion” to its hit The Walking Dead, to go along with its already high level of Walking Dead-related programming including The Talking Dead and a Web series.
The new spinoff series is set to debut in 2015, and according to series co-creator Robert Kirkman, will focus on a “new corner of the Walking Dead universe.”
You figure this new series has to be something the show’s producers felt was necessary to the story, right? Nah. AMC’s press release is pretty clear the whole thing is a cash-in “Building on the success of the most popular show on television for adults 18-49 is literally a no-brainer,” AMC President and General Manager Charlie Collier said.
The fourth season of The Walking Dead premieres October 13 on AMC.
