Another day, another Walking Dead spin-off. Yes, an all-new spin-off is in the works for the zombie franchise at AMC. And here you were thinking that just because the flagship show was ending the entire franchise would fade away. FOOLS!!!!
The next spin-off will be titled Tales of the Walking Dead and will be individual crossover between characters all throughout the franchise at different points in the show’s timeline.
Should Tales move forward, it would join spinoffs Fear the Walking Dead (which returns for its sixth season Oct. 11) and two-season limited series The Walking Dead: World Beyond (bowing Oct. 4) as well as the Reedus-McBride entry, with the latter overseen by flagship showrunner Angela Kang. A trilogy of films built around former leading man Andrew Lincoln (Rick) are also in the works via Universal Pictures.
“It’s been 10 years ‘gone bye’; what lies ahead are two more to come and stories and stories to tell beyond that,” Gimple said, in a nod to the pilot. “What’s clear is that this show has been about the living, made by a passionate cast, team of writer-producers, producers and crew, bringing to life the vision put forth by Robert Kirkman in his brilliant comic — and supported by the best fans in the world. We have a lot of thrilling story left to tell on TWD, and then, this end will be a beginning of moreWalking Dead — brand new stories and characters, familiar faces and places, new voices and new mythologies. This will be a grand finale that will lead to new premieres. Evolution is upon us. The Walking Dead lives.”
So you can call them stiffs, empties, monsters, zombies, or walkers, but AMC will just continue to call them cash cows.
