It’s all still in the early stages but it appears AMC is developing a The Walking Dead companion series. The new series will be executive produced by Robert Kirkman, Gale Anne Hurd and David Alpert and AMC’s aiming for a 2015 premiere of the new zombie show.
“Building on the success of the most popular show on television for adults 18-49 is literally a no-brainer,” stated Charlie Collier, AMC’s president and general manager. “We look forward to working with Robert, Gale and Dave again as we develop an entirely new story and cast of characters. It’s a big world and we can’t wait to give fans another unforgettable view of the zombie apocalypse.”
“After 10 years of writing the comic book series and being so close to the debut of our fourth, and in my opinion, best season of the TV series, I couldn’t be more thrilled about getting the chance to create a new corner of The Walking Dead universe,” added Kirkman. “The opportunity to make a show that isn’t tethered by the events of the comic book, and is truly a blank page, has set my creativity racing.”
The Walking Dead will kick off season four on October 13, 2013.
