In case you’re dying – no pun intended – to see more of the post-apocalyptic AMC’s hit serie The Walking Dead, you’re in luck. Series creator and producer Robert Kirkman as well as fellow producers David Alpert and Gale Anne Hurd will be developing a brand new parallel story that will happen in the same universe as the original series.
The project is still in development so there’s not much info yet but the network hopes to launch the series in 2015. AMC president Charlie Collier gave the following statement.
“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.”
Kirkman definitely seems to be excited about the whole idea, here’s what he had to say.
“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. 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.”
I absolutely can’t wait to see this spin-off of one of my all-time favorite series though, how about you?
