According to a TV-Line spokesperson, the cable series Walking Dead is getting a spin-off. AMC is calling it a "companion series". The new series will follow six characters that have survived the "Zombie Apocalypse". The potential characters will be Sean Cabrera, his teenage son Cody Cabrera, Nancy Tompkins and her teenage son and daughter Nick and Ashley Tompkins, and yet another Andrea. Andrea Chapman will be her name.
There have been talks of many Walking Dead spin-offs since the highly critically acclaimed original series debuted in October 2010, although none have received pilot episodes. AMC stated that this ordered pilot will start productioon in late 2014. There is no word on when it will premiere, or if it will keep up with the origin series in its October debuts. One can only hope that the two series will run concurrently when the latter does premiere
I am really looking forward to see where AMC takes this new spin-off series. Will you watch this Walking Dead spin-off when it premieres?
