Plus the official title for the third spin-off is The Walking Dead: The Ones Who Live.

Zombie spin-offs The Walking Dead: Dead City and The Walking Dead: Daryl Dixon have both been renewed for second seasons, the latter ahead of its premiere.

All three titles will screen in Australia on Stan.

The Walking Dead: The Ones Who Live with The Walking Dead: Daryl Dixon, on September 11, same day as the U.S.

The Walking Dead: Dead City’s six-episode first season follows the popular characters Maggie (Lauren Cohan) and Negan (Jeffrey Dean Morgan), traveling into a post-apocalyptic Manhattan, long ago cut off from the mainland. The crumbling city is filled with the dead and denizens who have made New York City their own world full of anarchy, danger, beauty, and terror.

In The Walking Dead: Daryl Dixon, Daryl (Norman Reedus) washes ashore in France and struggles to piece together how he got there and why. The series tracks his journey across a broken but resilient France as he hopes to find a way back home. As he makes the journey, though, the connections he forms along the way complicate his ultimate plan.

  1. Dead City has (somewhat remarkably!) renewed my interest in the Walking Dead franchise. It has been really good. After I’ve been so close to abandoning the whole thing a few times… Fear The Walking Dead being one of the worst TV shows on screen atm… Dead City has remained focused, thrilling and tight. I love the fact that it’s only 6 episodes… no 16 episode-a-season quotas filled with meaningless characters and meandering plots, this has stripped that right back to focus on Maggie and Negan’s plight and no one else. TWD was at its best when the action was tense, the characters in focus were ones we cared about, and the goals were achievable and believable… all of which is what this show has done really well so far. It’s not perfect of course, it still suffers from the odd character-plot contrivance… and underdeveloped side characters, however that no longer matters because they aren’t the main focus. We came here for Negan and Maggie, and that’s what they’ve given us in spades.

    1. I agree with you about Fear. I think both TWD and FTWD made a difficult decision to continue filming during COVID. It didn’t pay off particularly well for either show with character focussed storylines that didn’t contribute much to the canon of TWD story. But I do think TWD was given a good send off. I’m hoping that FTWD will do this well too.

      1. The first half of the final season of FTWD has been atrocious. Now Morgan is gone (thank the good lord!!), I hope we can get some sort of satisfying resolution because me being pleased with the way it goes out seems incredibly unlikely. I also agree with you that TWD had an ok final run and a fitting finale… even despite the spinoff shows being revealed already meant the stakes for a few key characters just wasn’t there, Rosita’s death hit me hard.
