The Walking Dead: World Beyond

The Walking Dead: World Beyond is an upcoming American post-apocalyptic horror drama limited series created by Scott M. Gimple and Matthew Negrete that is set to premiere on AMC on October 4, 2020. It is a spin-off series to The Walking Dead, which is based on the comic book series of the same name by Robert Kirkman, Tony Moore, and Charlie Adlard, and is the third television series within The Walking Dead franchise. The series will consist of two 10-episode seasons before concluding.
The series was announced July 2018 and was first given a ten-episode order in April 2019. Matthew Negrete, who has previously written for The Walking Dead, is the showrunner for the series.


The series, set in Nebraska ten years after the apocalypse, features two young female protagonists and focuses on "the first generation to come-of-age in the apocalypse as we know it. Some will become heroes. Some will become villains. In the end, all of them will be changed forever. Grown-up and cemented in their identities, both good and bad."
