AMC is Making Another "Walking Dead" Spinoff
AMC is developing a "Walking Dead" spinoff.
It’s official! AMC has confirmed the company is actively working on a new spin-off for their hit Georgia-filmed series “The Walking Dead”, making it the third show in the franchise alongside the previous spin-off “Fear The Walking Dead”.
AMC’s Chief Operating Officer Ed Carroll made the announcement during a quarterly earnings call with Wall Street analysts, where he states the following:
“We’re not at a stage where we’ll be announcing its plans to premiere. But we have hired creative people that have pitched story outlines. We feel very good about the development of that series. We’re not in a position to talk about partnerships in terms of other territories or ancillary windows, other than that there’s a healthy appetite for it and we’ve had a number of conversations with a lot of players in the space.”
The main show has lost their lead actors including Andrew Lincoln, Chandler Riggs, Lauren Cohan, and Danai Gureria. However, Lincoln is set to return to the franchise in a several “Walking Dead” movies and the show is moving forward with a season 10 and an upcoming crossover with “Fear The Walking Dead.”
“We are well aware that when a show has been around for nine years, you would expect viewership to be declining, but I think we’ve managed that and managed that well,” Carroll said. “When The Walking Dead is no longer part of the channel, I think that will have more of an impact on revenue than on, [income> because generally, expenses go up as the seasons continue and viewership declines. That’s just a general pattern with any show that’s been around as long as The Walking Dead has.”Related:
