A new TV series that will be a part of the “Walking Dead” universe is in the works after receiving a green light from AMC. The cable channel announced plans today for a new original drama co-created by Scott M. Gimple, chief content officer of The Walking Dead universe, and Matt Negrete, who has been a writer and producer on “The Walking Dead” for the past five seasons and will be the showrunner on the new series.
The new series marks the third installment in the “Walking Dead” franchise, following “The Walking Dead” and “Fear the Walking Dead.” The title of the new series has not been announced.
Produced and distributed by AMC Studios, the series will begin production on 10 episodes this summer in Virginia and is slated to premiere on AMC in 2020. The series will feature two young female protagonists and will focus on the first generation to come of age in the apocalypse as we know it.
