During AMC’s Television Critics Association presentation, the network has announced that the upcoming Walking Dead companion series The Walking Dead: World Beyond has been designed to run for just two seasons, and will get underway on Sunday, April 12th 2020.
In addition to the premiere reveal, we also got an updated synopsis for World Beyond, which reads:
The Walking Dead: World Beyond expands the universe of The Walking Dead, delving into a new mythology and story that follows the first generation raised in a surviving civilization of the post-apocalyptic world. Two sisters along with two friends leave a place of safety and comfort to brave dangers, known and unknown, living and undead on an important quest. Pursued by those who wish to protect them and those who wish to harm them, a tale of growing up and transformation unfurls across dangerous terrain, challenging everything they know about the world, themselves and each other. Some will become heroes. Some will become villains. But all of them will find the truths they seek.
