The AMC channel officially launched the second spin-off of the Walking Dead, which became known in late February, and made public the first details about the upcoming show.
The action of the series will unfold in the “unprecedented part of the Universe“ Walking ”, and in the center of the plot there will be two young girls. The story tells about the first generation of people who grew up after the zombie apocalypse.
The showmanner for the nameless spin-off is Matt Negrete, who has been writing scripts for the main series since season four. He was one of the authors of the episode where Rick Grimes last appeared by Andrew Lincoln.
At the moment, it is not known whether the upcoming show will be directly related to the franchise TV movies announced. It is also unclear whether the characters already familiar to the audience will appear in him, although the contracts of the main stars of “Walking”, like Norman Reedus and Melissa McBride, allow them to participate in any television project of the series.
In the first season of the spin-off will be ten episodes. Filming is scheduled to begin in Virginia in the summer of 2019.
As AMC cable network executives noted, the launch of another series in addition to “Fear the Walking Dead” will allow the channel to broadcast new episodes for almost the entire year with minor interruptions.
In the meantime, the Walking Dead ratings continue to fall. The main franchise show loses viewers three times faster than other “long-running” TV shows – the figures for the ninth season were lower than in 2010.
