A new promo for the series has been released by AMC through the official Rotten Tomatoes Twitter page. The promo briefly highlights the new Walking Dead show's characters, as well as the challenges they will encounter on their journey, before concluding with the reveal of its name: The Walking Dead: World Beyond.
Fittingly, this announcement comes as The Walking Dead Season 10 airs its mid-season finale, titled, "The World Before." Based on the Image Comics series of the same name, The Walking Dead first premiered on AMC in 2010. World Beyond is its second spinoff, following Fear the Walking Dead, which debuted in 2015.
Set ten years after the beginning of The Walking Dead's zombie outbreak, World Beyond follows the next generation of survivors -- who never truly knew a life before the apocalypse and have grown up in a less immediately dangerous wasteland than the ones their elders had to traverse. Described as a "post-apocalyptic Stand By Me, the show finds its teenage protagonists leaving the safety of their homes to venture out into the unforgiving world around them.
The Walking Dead: World Beyond is created by Scott Gimple, Robert Kirkman and Matt Negrete. The series stars Aliyah Royale, Alexa Mansour, Annet Mahendru, Nicolas Cantu, Hal Cumpston and Nico Tortorella. It is scheduled to premiere on AMC in spring 2020.
