The Walking Dead universe is expanding again – with a third series set to premier in 2020 with 10 episodes.
AMC says the new series “will feature two young female protagonists and focus on the first generation to come-of-age in the apocalypse as we know it. Some will become heroes. Some will become villains. In the end, all of them will be changed forever. Grown-up and cemented in their identities, both good and bad.”
Scott M. Gimple (AMC Chief Content Officer) and Matt Negrete (Producer/Showrunner) will guide the series. Gimple noted, “Showing audiences an unseen pocket of The Walking Dead universe steeped in a new mythology is a very cool way to celebrate a ‘Decade of the Dead’ on TV and over 15 years of Robert Kirkman’s brilliant comic.”
No cast has been announced, nor has there been any indication that crossover characters will be part of the series – Maggie – hello?
