Major news for fans of The Walking Dead and Fear The Walking Dead.
TOOFAB reports the greenlight is bright for AMC, which as approved a NEW Walking Dead series!
Here's what's known so far.

  • the series will begin with 2 female protanists, the 1st generation, who come-of-age in the apocalypse.
  • it will be co-created by The Walking Dead chief content officer Scott M. Gimple and Matt Negrete (writer and producer of the The Walking Dead for the past 5 seasons). Negrete will be the showrunner of the series.
  • production will begin the summer in Virginia.
  • 10 episodes have been ordered.
  • the NEW Walking Dead series will debut on AMC in 2020

Scott M. Gimple says, "Showing audiences an unseen pocket of The Walking Dead Universe steeped in a new mythology is a very cool way to celebrate a ‘Decade of the Dead’ on TV and over fifteen years of Robert Kirkman's brilliant comic."

Gimple also noted, "Matt Negrete is one of the best writer-producers in TWD's long history — I'm thrilled to be working beside him to tell stories unlike we've seen before, taking our first step into an even larger world."

Wonder what they're considering calling the series?
