The Walking Dead: even more spin-offs are being planned

The Walking Dead

The success of The Walking Dead’s spin-off series, Fear The Walking Dead, has clearly whetted the appetite for American network AMC. It’s now confirmed that it’s exploring other options for potential spin-off series.

The news was confirmed by Scott M Gimple, the outgoing showrunner of The Walking Dead, who’s about to take on a chief context officer role, overseeing the whole franchise.

He said that “there are different approaches to how we tell stories and how long we tell them for and the places we can do them. I’m hoping to do a variety of different projects that are probably more in line with what we see on TV but maybe in different rhythms and formats and things like that”.

“We’ll still continue to come out with great digital content but I’m excited about the kind of stuff we can do. But I really am talking about all sides of it and I know we’ll have more to talk about soon on that”.

No details of the spin-offs have been announced so far.
