Next Walking Dead spin-off for Amazon Prime

The third series from The Walking Dead universe is headed to Prime Video in Autumn 2020.

The as yet untitled series will feature two young female protagonists and focus on the first generation to come of-age in the apocalypse as we know it. Some will become heroes. Some will become villains. In the end, all of them will be changed forever. Grown-up and cemented in their identities, both good and bad.

It is co-created by Scott M. Gimple, with Matt Negrete on board as co-creator and showrunner. The series will star Aliyah Royale, Alexa Mansour, Annet Mahendru, Nicolas Cantu, Hal Cumpston and Nico Tortorella.

“TV audiences around the world have demonstrated their passion for The Walking Dead universe, and we are so excited to bring this next iteration to our Prime members,” said Brad Beale, Vice President of Worldwide Licensing for Amazon Prime Video.

“An exciting and heartfelt survival story that will have our viewers sitting on the edge of their seats, this next series from the world of The Walking Dead will make an excellent addition to the growing catalogue of global event series available to Amazon customers.”

  1. I haven’t watched TWD for a few years now have they explained how the virus started or have they just left that and just focused on Rick’s tenuous grip on power and the big bad villain who tend to be same as the last.

  2. I’m not even going to bother trying this or any other spinoff. I can imagine after 2 or 3 seasons the lead will be killed off and replaced by another WD character like Fear was.

  3. I guess the biggest question for all these spin-offs is how long would a living dead body last especially the vital bits like eyes and muscle tissue, they are biodegradable and would dissolve after a few months not years so even if the brain survived by some reaction to the virus the victim would be totally immobile and easy to dispose of by the living. After ten years the only reason the apocalypse would continue is if people procreated and the disease came with it, as with any contagion a better system of disease control would manage that as well.
