The Walking Dead: A Complete List of Every Movie, Spinoff, and Every Detail We Know
For a moment it appeared as if the flagship The Walking Dead series would continue indefinitely. AMC probably wanted it, because it’s one of the network’s biggest hits. However, after 11 seasons, the lack of new adaptation material from Robert Kirkman’s original comic book series and some casting turnover finally spelled the end.
Despite the fact that The Walking Dead The TV series is coming out, AMC’s The Walking Dead the franchise is going nowhere. Looks like it’s some kind of…walker coming back to life, maybe? Before ending his television tour, The Walking Dead inspired the creation of two spin-offs from which AMC seems content to continue with many more new shows.
With so many Walking Dead spinoffs on the horizon, it can be hard to keep track of them all. So save us the trouble! Here is a list of all the television and film projects set up in The Walking Dead universes that have already been released or will soon be released.
Fear the living dead
Fear the living dead is the very first Walking Dead and has lasted long enough for a TV show thanks to its immense popularity. The number of episodes of Fear the living dead quickly approximates that of its parent series, which premiered on August 23, 2015 and focused on a different perspective on the zombie apocalypse.
Since its debut, the series has undergone numerous narrative and production changes. Morgan Jones (Lennie James), an original Walking Dead character, joined the cast in the fourth season and served as one of the show’s main characters. Fear The Walking Dead is now in its seventh season, with at least one more to go. Madison Clark (Kim Dickens) also returns to the series.
The Walking Dead: World Beyond
The Walking Dead: World Beyond was a unique experience for the series. While the main series and Fear go on indefinitely, World Beyond had a closing point in mind of 20 episodes spread over two seasons. In the Civic Republic, four young people from the Omaha Campus Colony go on an adventure to discover the father of one of their own in the Civic Republic.
The characters of the series did not have a great influence on The Walking Dead as a whole, but the series introduced some of the lore. The Civic Republic Army (CRM) will recur, as will the enigmatic post-credits scene that suggests where the zombie outbreak began.
Tales from The Walking Dead
The Walking Deadthe long-awaited spin-off, Tales of the Living Dead, will premiere in the summer of 2022. One of the first announced spinoffs of the post-TWD era is an anthology series. As the name suggests, this program will feature stand-alone stories set inside The Walking Dead universes that include both new and returning characters.
AMC has revealed the cast of “Tales of the Walking Dead,” and it includes several familiar names and faces. Terrence Crews, Anthony Edwards, Parker Posey, Poppy Liu, Jillian Bell, Olivia Munn, Danny Ramirez, Loan Chabanol, Embeth Davidtz, Jessie T. Usher and Gage Munroe.
We also know of a former TWD character who will appear in Tales. Alpha, the leader of the Whisperers (Samantha Morton), is set to return in the series finale.
Untitled Daryl and Carol Spinoff
Following The Walking DeadWith the departure of lead hero Rick Grimes (Andrew Lincoln) midway through his ninth season, there was a substantial on-screen leadership gap. Daryl Dixon (Norman Reedus) and Carol Peletier (Melissa McBride), both survivors of season 1, have sunk into the void.
Although still a group effort, Daryl and Carol are now the closest thing The Walking Dead the franchise needs to have main characters, and AMC won’t allow a small thing like a series finale to get in the way of more of them.
The future of Daryl and Carol’s untitled spin-off remains uncertain. The series is set to premiere in 2023, with TWD chief content officer Scott Gimple, executive producer and head writer Angela Kang leading the series.
Isle of the Dead (Maggie and Negan Spinoff)
AMC’s announcement of the Isle of the Dead was a bit surprising. Not only will the series be set in post-apocalyptic Manhattan, which Kirkman’s comic book never attempted to render, but it will feature two characters who have every reason to despise each other. That’s right: Maggie Rhee (Lauren Cohan) and Negan (Jeffrey Dean Morgan).
The premiere of The Walking Dead: Isle of the Dead, which will have six episodes, will arrive in 2023. The showrunner will be Eli Jorne. AMC’s description of the project says, “Isle of the Dead imagines the popular characters of Maggie and Negan traveling to a post-apocalyptic Manhattan long cut off from the mainland. The ruined city is filled with the dead and the inhabitants who have made New York their own world full of anarchy, danger, beauty and terror.
Untitled Rick Grimes Film Series
Since the departure of Andrew Lincoln’s character The Walking Dead on November 4, 2018, the untitled Rick Grimes films are in production. However, since then there has been a relative lack of news on the project (initially announced as one movie and later clarified as multiple).
According to reports, the first movie was originally supposed to start filming in early 2021, but that didn’t happen for unknown reasons. In July 2021, Walking Dead Producer Greg Nicotero said he had read “a number of draft scripts over the past few months” and that the team “really made sure to get it right”.
Lincoln will undoubtedly return as Rick Grimes. Jadis, who was last seen flying in a helicopter with Grimes, is also set to return.
