The Walking Dead: World Beyond Premiere Postponed by AMC

The Walking Dead: World Beyond premiere postponed by AMC

AMC has announced that they are postponing the premiere of their new spinoff series The Walking Dead: World Beyond. Originally set to launch on Sunday, April 12, the first season had already finished filming, with only a few episodes remaining in post-production. Deadline infers the show was pushed to an indefinite date later this year due to the current COVID-19 fallout, which has resulted in post-production pipelines being delayed and crucial ad buys pulled. It also may not be the right climate to unveil a new apocalyptic-themed show. You can check out a new piece of key art below!

The Walking Dead: World Beyond will serve as the third show of the television franchise, following The Walking Dead and Fear the Walking Dead. According to AMC, the series expands the universe of The Walking Dead, delving into new mythology and story that follows the first generation raised in a surviving civilization of the post-apocalyptic world.

Two sisters along with two friends leave a place of safety and comfort to brave dangers, known and unknown, living and undead on an important quest.  Pursued by those who wish to protect them and those who wish to harm them, a tale of growing up and transformation unfurls across dangerous terrain, challenging everything they know about the world, themselves and each other. Some will become heroes, some will become villains. In the end, all of them will be changed forever.
