AMC is in the early stages of developing a “companion series” for its hit drama The Walking Dead, they announnced Monday morning.
Said Charlie Collier in the official press release, building on the success of the drama – “the most popular show on television for adults 18-49” was a “no-brainer.” After all, The Walking Dead season three out-performed The Big Bang Theory, Modern Family, The Voice, and Game of Thrones.
It appears that the new world being created isn’t necessarily tied to the comic book that The Walking Dead, is based on, though it would come from creator Robert Kirkman and the show’s executive producers Gale Anne Hurd and Dave alpert.
The announcement follows that of Breaking Bad spin-off Better Call Saul, and two other new drama series for 2014; Halt & Catch Fire and Turn.
Season four of The Walking Dead will return to AMC on October 13. The spin-off will launch in 2015 – check back for updates.
