The Walking Dead: World Beyond on track for fall premiere
Despite production being shut down on many Hollywood projects amidst global health concerns, AMC has confirmed that post-production on The Walking Dead: World Beyond is running smoothly and the series is still on track to make its fall premiere date, according to Deadline.
“We have made some adjustments, moved the Killing Eve premiere up a couple of weeks and, you’re probably aware, moved Walking Dead: World Beyond back into the fourth quarter,” COO Ed Carroll said. “We’re finishing post on that, that will be set to go.”
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.
The series will star Alexa Mansour as Hope, Nicolas Cantu as Elton, Hal Cumpston as Silas, Annet Mahendru as Huck, Aliyah Royale as Iris, Nico Tortorella as Felix and Joe Holt as Leo Bennett. It will also feature Emmy winner Julia Ormond (Temple Grandin) as Elizabeth, Natalie Gold as Lyla, Al Calderon as Barca, Scott Adsit as Tony, and Ted Sutherland as Percy.
The Walking Dead spinoff will have writer and producer Matt Negrete showrunning alongside chief content officer Scott M. Gimple. The series has been given a 10-episode order. The first spinoff, Fear the Walking Dead, is set to return for its sixth season sometime next year with The Walking Dead currently airing the second half of its tenth season.
