Dead Walks: The Next Generation?
AMC has commissioned the third edition of the Walking Dead universe, the cable network on Monday announced.
Like Fear the Walking Dead, an unnamed show is not described as a spinaf from the original series, but a separate story that will, according to AMC, have two young protagonists and focus on the first generation of the old age Some will become heroes. Some will become wicked. In the end, everyone will change forever. Adults and locked in their identities, both good and bad. "
The new series will consist of 10 episodes and will be filmed in Virginia this summer for the premier date of 2020. (Since the original movie shows in Atlanta and Fear the Walking Dead movies in Austin, we probably should not expect to crossover soon), Walker Dead writer Matt Negrete will serve as a showrunner, and co-founder of the project with Scott Gimple, the main content officer in The Walking Dead.
"We are thrilled that the dead will continue to walk into a new post-apocalyptic world, a corner where stories and characters will be depicted, unlike those that The Walking Dead has dramatized so far, and this will surely cause one of the most passionate fans television station, "said David Madden, president of AMC Networks and AMC Studios." Scott was an invaluable leader for the universe, as he took over the role of the chief of content, with a clear and innovative vision for the franchise. we have Matta, who has been a key part of The Walking Dead for over five years and has written many unforgettable TWD episodes, at the helm of this original series. "
"After five years of unbelievable ninth season of The Walking Dead and approaching the expected new season Fear the Walking Dead on June 2, this is an exciting moment for the franchise Dead, which continues to grow in a highly competitive environment, said Sarah Barnett, president amusement network groups for AMC Networks. "We are grateful for working with some of the best creatives in business to expand this space into new and exciting ways for our fans."
"Showing the audience with the invisible pocket of the Universe walking dead, immersed in a new mythology, is a great way to celebrate the" Decade of Dead "on television and over fifteen years of brilliant comedian Robert Kirkmann," Gimple said. "Matt Negrete is one of the best writers-producers in the long history of TWD. I am thrilled to be working next to him to tell stories as opposed to what we saw before, making our first step into an even bigger world."
"I'm a bit excited to be part of this new show in The Walking Dead Universe," Negrete said. "Writing and producing for the original series was the job of my whole life, and I'm honored to be working with Scott and all the fine dead in AMC at this new capacity. I can not wait for franchise fans to see what we boiled! "
The Space of Walking Dead was not particularly happy with his youthful characters outside the Grimes family – Henry's recent deceased and "too cold teenagers," as Matt Fowler called them, are described as a weak point for many of the 9th season while younger female characters like Enid (RIP) and Oceanside crew remained underdeveloped over several seasons. Will the next generation of dead survivors survive the narrative traps of those who came before them? We'll find it next year.
Walking Dead has completed its ninth season last week and AMC is currently developing three Walking Dead movies that will focus on Rick Grimes' adventures after his departure from the show. Danai Gurira also allegedly emerges from the show after the 10th season, but may appear in Rick Grimes films. The 5th season of Fear the Walking Dead will debut in June – refresh your memory of where it stood with our finishing season 4.
