AMC remains committed to its The Walking Dead spinoff.
The basic cable network used its time in front of fans Friday at Comic-Con in San Diego to renew The Walking Dead spin-off Dead City starring Lauren Cohan and Jeffrey Dean Morgan, as well as the upcoming N. Orman Reedus leads the Darryl Dixon series.
“The new chapter of The Walking Dead universe continues to thrive, with the fantastic first season of Dead City and fan-favorite character Daryl Dixon’s highly anticipated new journey coming in September,” said AMC Entertainment President Dan McDermott. “We can’t wait to bring City of the Dead fans back to downtown Manhattan for more zipline action with Maggie and Negan. And, ahead of its debut, we’re excited to double down on Darryl as we bring the end of the world to France, turning Notre Dame, the Pont du Gard and other iconic locations into post-apocalyptic landscapes we’ve seen before.”
Darryl Dick Daryl Dixon was originally slated to star Reedus and fan favorite Melissa McBride (Carroll), but didn’t premiere on AMC until September Meanwhile, Dead City , which follows the adventures of Maggie and Negan, wrapped up its six-episode first season on Sunday.
Both shows are part of The Walking Dead extended series, which also includes the second half of the eighth and final season of the first spin-off,
Fear the Walking Dead (released in October 360) and
The Walking Dead: Those Who Live starring Andrew Lincoln (Rick) and Danai Gurira (Michonne Eun) to join hands again and confirm the release date next year. The latter series was originally conceived as three feature films, but has since been turned into a six-episode “limited” series, of which there may or may not be more than one season, according to sources. The franchise created by Robert Kirkman also has a season of The Walking Dead , an anthology series that will still be open for additional episodes if franchise creative director Scott M. Gimple writes more stories for the show. The youthful series The Walking Dead: World Beyond has completed two seasons.
