“The Walking Dead: Dead City” – Negan and Maggie Spinoff Series Gets a New Title

AMC is expanding upon the universe of “The Walking Dead” with several new projects, one of them being a spinoff series centered on Negan (Jeffrey Dean Morgan) and Maggie (Lauren Cohan), two characters from the main series. That series had originally been titled “Isle of the Dead,” but AMC has announced a brand new title for the upcoming spinoff this week.

The Negan/Maggie series is now titled “The Walking Dead: Dead City.”

Walking Dead: Dead City sees Maggie and Negan traveling into a post-apocalyptic Manhattan long ago cut off from the mainland. The crumbling city is filled with the dead and denizens who have made New York City their own world full of anarchy, danger, beauty, and terror.”

Expect the six-episode series sometime next year.

Eli Jorné (“The Walking Dead”) has been set as the showrunner.

“This is a very big day for the expanding universe we are building around The Walking Dead,” said Dan McDermott, president of entertainment and AMC Studios for AMC Networks. “It not only adds another compelling series to this collection, it extends our storytelling around two unforgettable characters fans have grown to love, hate or hate and then love in Maggie and Negan, brilliantly inhabited by Lauren and Jeffrey. It also lets us explore a corner of this universe located on the island of Manhattan, with an iconic skyline that takes on a very different meaning when viewed through the lens of a zombie apocalypse.”

“Eli has created a chaotic, beautiful, grimy madhouse of the dead for Negan, Maggie, and fans of the show eager to discover an unseen and insane world of the TWD Universe,” added franchise architect Scott Gimple. “Lauren and Jeffrey have always been fantastic collaborators and now, we bring that collaboration to the next level with a series that will take these characters to their limits with the world — and each other. All of us are thrilled to take you on an all new, all different TWD epic for the ages.”
