Get ready for more zombies.
AMC announced Monday that it is developing a “companion series” (read: spin-off) for “The Walking Dead,” with a target on-air date of 2015.
Robert Kirkman (who created the comic book series “The Walking Dead” is based on) will executive produce the new series, along with Gale Anne Hurd and David Alpert.
“Building on the success of the most popular show on television for adults 18-49 is literally a no-brainer,” said 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.”
