"The Walking Dead: World Beyond" on AMC

Since we are getting more and more news of the third spinoff, I started its own thread instead of clustering the other thread with an additional show. I can get the title changed once they announce it.


Third Walking Dead series casts its first three leads


The series will focus on two female protagonists in the first generation to come of age in the zombie apocalypse.

The third series from the world of The Walking Dead has found its first three main actors.

Alexa Mansour (Unfriended: Dark Web), Nicolas Cantu (The Amazing World of Gumball), and Hal Cumpston (from Australian comedy Bilched) will star in the new show, which will join The Walking Dead and Fear the Walking Dead on AMC in 2020, EW has learned.

The first 10 episodes of this zombie drama, still without an officially released title, “will feature two young female protagonists and focus on the first generation to come-of-age in the apocalypse as we know it,” according to a network description. “Some will become heroes. Some will become villains. In the end, all of them will be changed forever. Grown-up and cemented in their identities, both good and bad.”

According to Variety, Mansour will play “a good-natured rule breaker who lives for today. She is likable and funny on the outside but sad on the inside.” The trade also describes Cantu’s character as a “friendly” “old soul” with a black belt in karate, and reports Cumpston’s character as “a shy loner who hates the fact that he scares kids.”

The Walking Dead writer/producer Matt Negrete, who created the new show with chief content officer Scott M. Gimple, will serve as showrunner. Filming will commence this summer in Virginia.

As we await for intel, we know that Fear the Walking Dead (currently airing its fifth season) and The Walking Dead (heading into its 10th season) will both have panels at this year’s San Diego Comic-Con in Hall H. The former assembles on the main stage at noon PST on Friday, July 19 with the latter to follow at 1 p.m. PST.

AMC is also developing a number of Walking Dead movies that feature the return of Andrew Lincoln’s Rick Grimes.

‘The Walking Dead’ Third Series: Nico Tortorella To Star In New Spinoff On AMC


EXCLUSIVE: Nico Tortorella (Younger) has been tapped for a lead role in the upcoming third series in The Walking Dead franchise on AMC.


Nico’s character, Felix, is described as an honorable man of his word who isn’t afraid to fight for others’ safety and acceptance.


The untitled third series will focus on the first generation to come of age in the apocalypse as we know it. Some will become heroes. Some will become villains. In the end, all of them will be changed forever.


The casting won’t interfere with Tortorella’s series regular role on Darren Star’s hit TV Land comedy series Younger, which was recently renewed for a seventh season with Tortorella set to continue as Josh.


On the new Walking Dead series, which has started production in and around Richmond, VA, Tortorella joins previously cast Annet Mahendru (Huck) and Aliyah Royale (Iris) join Alexa Mansour (Hope), Nicolas Cantu (Elton) and Hal Cumpston (Silas


Produced and distributed by AMC Studios, the series will premiere on AMC in spring 2020. Jordan Vogt-Roberts will direct the series co-created by Scott Gimple and The Walking Dead veteran writer and producer Matt Negrete, who will serve as the series’ showrunner.


Tortorella starred as Lyle Menendez in the Lifetime telefilm Menendez: Blood Brothers. Their TV series credits also include The Following and The Beautiful Life.

Tortorella, a staunch LGBTQIA+ advocate who identifies as non-binary, is also an author who released a poetry book, all of it is you, last year. A second book, a memoir titled Space Between, will be released on September 17. Tortorella is repped by Gersh and Management 360.

Julia Ormond has joined the cast of the third series in “The Walking Dead” franchise, entitled “The Walking Dead: World Beyond.”

Ormond will play Elizabeth a “charismatic leader of a large, sophisticated and formidable force,” AMC announced Sunday.

“We are thrilled to have Julia join our merry band. I’m grateful for the talent, grace, intelligence, and humor she has brought to our set, our show and to this role.

“The Walking Dead: World Beyond” centers on the first generation raised in the zombie apocalypse. Some will become heroes, some will become villains, but in the end, all of them will be changed forever. Grown-up and cemented in their identities, both good and bad.

Produced and distributed by AMC Studios, the series is executive produced by co-creators Gimple and showrunner Matt Negrete, Robert Kirkman, Gale Anne Hurd, David Alpert and Brian Bockrath. “The Walking Dead: World Beyond” also stars Aliyah Royale as Iris, Alexa Mansour as Hope, Annet Mahendru as Huck, Nicolas Cantu as Elton, Hal Cumpston as Silas and Nico Tortorella as Felix.

Also joining the show’s series regulars in recurring guest roles this season are Natalie Gold (“Succession”) as Lyla, a mysterious figure operating in the shadows on behalf of the cause she believes in; Al Calderon (“Step Up: High Water”) as Barca; Scott Adsit (“Veep,” “30 Rock”) as Tony; and Ted Sutherland (“Fear Street,” “Rise”) as Percy.

Walking Dead Junior would have been more appropriate.

this looks awful...WD: 90210...why call it 'World Beyond' when it looks exactly the same as the other WD shows- new group of survivors, new big bad villains, same rinse and repeat storylines...how about setting one of these new shows overseas to show how they are dealing with the apocalypse?

Zombies with teen angst.....I'll get right on that....not....

Episode topics include:

- Should you feel bad your parents were eaten by zombies, or happy you finally can have the keys to the Porsche?
- Is it appropriate to wear white after the apocalypse?
- Do we still have to divide up between the Jocks, the Cheerleaders, the Stoners, the Nerds and the Outcasts?
- Does my homemade armor make my butt look big?
- Does having a bad hair day excuse you from saving your friends?
- Do we just get to kill zombies or are mimes included?
- How long until the anonymous guy with the knit hat gets bitten?
- Are we required to walk in slow motion while an Imagine Dragons song plays?

Amusingly, Daybreak on Netflix actually answered most of these questions.

As someone who stopped watching TWD after the big time jump and is on the fence with FTWD, I'm cautiously intrigued about the next spinoff. I like the idea of jumping even further in the future when some semblance of civilization has been established (effectively spoiling the general arcs of the existing TWD series). I watch enough CW series that it would be disingenuous of me to complain about the show's "youth movement." And like most CW shows, this could either be enjoyable and entertaining enough to keep me interested or a complete disaster.

Why do you think " further into the future" .. ?
The Trailer in Post 5 mentions "10 years after " the start of the outbreak ... that seems to me to be about where TWD is now with their recent jump, with Judith being around 8-9 yrs old or so ....

I saw that (10 years after the outbreak). I'm a little fuzzy on the timeline math so that's why I put "further," even if only by one year. I didn't realize that, according to the TWD wiki, she's 10 as of season 10.
