There’s a new Walking Dead spinoff coming to AMC in 2020, and here’s the first promo for it.
AMC has released the first teaser promo for a new The Walking Dead spinoff which promises to introduce viewers to “new characters, new zombies” and a “new world.”
There’s no actual footage, but we do meet several of the main cast members and get a glimpse of some very interesting concept art, which seemingly confirms that the series will introduce sci-fi elements to the franchise. Specific plot details remain under wraps, but we do know that it’ll focus on the first generation to grow up in the midst of the zombie apocalypse.
That most curious part is the sci-fi element. Will the third spin-off series reveal the origin of the zombie virus? Robert Kirkman originally sold the idea to Image Comics with the lie that the virus came from aliens and that aliens would play a big role in the series. That of course never happened. At least in the comic book series.
The still-untitled show will star Alexa Mansour, Nicolas Cantu, Hal Cumpston, Aliyah Royale and Annet Mahendru. We found out at SDCC last week that Kong: Skull Island director Jordan Vogt-Roberts will helm the pilot.
