Already as big and popular as it is with a new season already underway in just a month's time, "The Walking Dead" is going to get a whole lot bigger... Thanks to a special announcement by the network that a NEW SERIES/ SPINOFF is in the works and coming soon!
After wrapping up three successful seasons and set to start its 4th this October, AMC's "The Walking Dead" is now primed to become two shows come 2015, with a separate series spiraling off from the main show and charting its own course with its own brand of story and survivors facing the ramifications of the zombie apocalypse.
In the announcement and story from AMC, Walking Dead franchise creator and comic book writer Robert Kirkman had this 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."
With no additional information yet on what the spinoff is and how it will go, only time will tell for sure what's in store for fans... And whether Rick Grimes and his band of survivors will make an appearance. For more information, visit the source post at Bleeding Cool.
The Walking Dead returns on AMC this October 13.
