Better Call Saul, and now the network has announced that it is in development on a "companion series" to its hit zombie show The Walking Dead, which AMC Studios is producing alongside Robert Kirkman, Gale Anne Hurd and David Alpert.
"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," said comic book creator Kirkman. "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."
The Walking Dead spin-off is planned for 2015, while TWD itself is set to return to AMC on October 13th.
