The Walking Dead is finally ending after more than ten years as the most popular zombie program on television, yet the series is still alive. In actuality, AMC is still pouring a significant amount of money into offshoot endeavors. A post-apocalyptic New York City will be explored in Dead City as it follows the odd pair of Maggie (Lauren Cohan) and Negan (Jeffrey Dean Morgan)!
Given that Negan killed Maggie’s husband, they are not close friends, thus it seems odd that they would star in a spinoff together. Additionally, the simple fact that the spinoff exists implies that the two characters will live to see the main show’s series conclusion, which lessens the tension. We’re talking about the last episodes of one of the most watched TV programs in the world; nobody ought to be protected from plot spoilers like that.
Even Morgan has criticized AMC officials for the way they publicized the proposal. That wasn’t how we ought to have approached the situation, he told Entertainment Weekly. But this is the outcome that was decided. Who knows, though? We might not have been able to keep the secret. But I think we could have at least tried. I would have attempted to approach it differently, but it is beyond my scope of responsibility.
The Walking Dead: Dead City teaser from Jeffrey Dean Morgan
Morgan admits that despite playing a significant role on the show ever since his debut in the season 6 finale, he “couldn’t say no” to further Walking Dead escapades.
Unfortunately, Morgan wasn’t always eager to go on. “There’s no way,” I would have said if you had told me that I would be doing it a year ago. I’m going to terminate this and go,” he said, according to EW. The next experience is waiting for you to try something new.
We’re eager to see how Negan’s tale develops! The manner and reason for his alliance with Maggie, though, have us just as fascinated. Naturally, Maggie must take care of Hershel while Negan has a wife and a child on the way. What is so crucial that they must abandon their families?
What we currently understand about The Walking Dead: Dead City
Isle of the Dead, which is objectively a far better name for this offshoot, was eventually changed to Dead City. Dan McDermott, president of AMC, gives a pretty bleak image of what New York City would look like following the end of the world.
A large number of zombies!
On October 8 on AMC, The Walking Dead returns for its final eight episodes. Although a release date for the six-episode miniseries Dead City is not yet set, it will debut in 2019!
