'Walking Dead' Spinoff Gets Release Date, Two Season Order

Big news from AMC about The Walking Dead‘s spinoff series – it is going to premiere this summer and it has already received a two season order!

The series, which doesn’t yet have a title, will take place in Los Angeles and it will focus on new characters and storylines. The first season will have six one-hour episodes and premiere late summer. The second season will air in 2016.

“We take incredibly seriously the notion of building a satisfying companion series to the number one show on television. From the beginning of The Walking Dead on AMC, we’ve been asked questions about what was going on in other parts of the zombie apocalypse, and what it looked like as the world really did ‘turn.’ Through this new series, we’re going to find out,” said Charlie Collier, AMC president. “Robert Kirkman, Dave Erickson and their writing team, along with an incomparable set of producers, cast and crew have created something remarkable and clearly distinct. We respectfully follow the request of Monty Python as we bring out (the latest of) our Dead.”

ARE YOU EXCITED for the spinoff series of The Walking Dead?
