We have our first in-depth look at the upcoming The Walking Dead spin-off series that is yet to have a name, but is beginning to build excitement. From the Walking Dead panel at San Diego Comic-Con this summer, and the teaser that was released shortly after, we know that this series will follow a group we have never met before that has been surviving the zombie apocalypse in a community that has not faced as many trials as the groups we have followed up to now. This group has a bunch of teens that have grown up in this post-apocalyptic world, but fairly sheltered. They are looking to strike out and see what the world around them is truly like. For those of us who have been watching the last nine years, we know that’s probably not a great idea, and they do not sound ready for what is in store.
The series will star Annet Mahendru (The Americans) as Huck, Aliyah Royale (The Red Line) as Iris, Alexa Mansour (Unfriended: Dark Web) as Hope, Nicolas Cantu (Lego Star Wars: The Freemaker Adventures) as Elton, and Hal Cumpston (Bilched) as Silas.
I know some people are rolling their eyes at the idea of a new spin-off, but I’m excited to see a different part of the country, and how it looks out there. I’m willing to give it a shot, and these photos released today at New York Comic Con by AMC have me even more excited. Stay tuned for more info from the show’s panel this Saturday. Check the photos out below, and let us know what you think.
