"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. We — and the audience — are very lucky to have Julia helping bring this new world of the Walking Dead to life,” said co-creator Scott M. Gimple.

“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.

The Walking Dead: World Beyond could feature even more crossovers

Scott M. Gimple also explains how the new show and TWD timelines won't exactly match up.

The third scripted series in the Walking Dead franchise will be unleashed when The Walking Dead: World Beyond debuts in April on AMC. Trailers and teasers have already revealed a link to the other two TWD shows with footage of the three-ring helicopter group known as CRM, but could there be other crossovers in the works?

In part two of our sit-down with Walking Dead chief content officer Scott M. Gimple, we asked the co-creator (along with Matthew Negrete) of the new series if World Beyond’s timeline matches up with the mothership show, why it takes place in Nebraska, if each of the rings in the CRM will appear on each of the TWD shows, and what other crossovers may be in the works. (Also read part one of our chat about the upcoming Rick Grimes movie, and check back later this week for intel on TWD, Fear the Walking Dead and other new content in the works.)

ENTERTAINMENT WEEKLY: Now that we’ve talked about The Walking Dead movie, let’s move over to World Beyond. Does this show line up, time-wise, with where we are now on The Walking Dead?

SCOTT M. GIMPLE: Technically, it’s a little behind. But not much. Not enough for people to notice.

So it’s not completely simultaneous? It’s just a little bit back?
It’s very, very close to being simultaneous, but a little bit back, yes. Not in any way that anyone will possibly notice.

We saw the three ring CRM group that we’ve already encountered on TWD and Fear the Walking Dead very prominently in the last World Beyond teaser. What can you say about how this show relates to some of the things we’ve already seen and connecting some of these threads you all have laid out?

We’re going to be discovering this very big aspect to the world that we haven’t yet seen. We’ve seen glimpses of it on the shows with the helicopters and with the soldier that we saw, Isabelle on Fear. The movie does obviously touch upon some of that mythology as well as Rick being in one of those helicopters. In some ways, World Beyond, it’s a big story and yet it’s sort of Rosencrantz and Guildenstern to Rick’s Hamlet, meaning the show and the movie touch upon some of the same things, but they’re not really that deeply related.

We’ll learn more though about that group, that civilization, the nature of some other civilizations of the world through World Beyond, and that will give some of the background for the world that Rick finds himself in. But the story of World Beyond doesn’t really intersect with the movies other than they share knowledge and interaction with some of these bigger things going on in the world.

We see the three rings, assuming three different communities. You now have three Walking Dead shows. Is there a world where we see each of these communities on one of these shows?

Oh, lordy.


I’m just doing math, Scott. I’m doing simple math.

No, I’m actually loving it. I will say that though this mythology appeared on The Walking Dead and on Fear the Walking Dead, those two shows aren’t going to be as involved with this. We don’t want to change all of The Walking Dead to having to do with this. It’ll wax and wane, it’ll occasionally touch upon it, but really there’s going to be brand new mythologies on each of these shows and even outside of these shows. This is not the new mythology for The Walking Dead. This is a new mythology for The Walking Dead universe. The new show is tied into it quite a bit, the movie is as well, but it isn’t going to be a driving force throughout all the shows on the universe.

We really want to strike some differentiation, and even the movie and the new show are so vastly different and deal with some vast different aspects. They do kind of show these cool different aspects of this new mythology, but they aren’t tied in it directly. The Walking Dead has such amazing stuff coming up, we don’t want this to be the only story that all of these different shows and movies are telling.

Is there going to be any other crossover element to World Beyond other than the CRM?

Yeah, absolutely. I mean, they do share a universe. Though it is really cool to see how this different corner of the universe operates and the lives that they have been living all this time, it will be these little places that cross. We’ve been talking about aspects of next season of World Beyond. There might even be a big aspect of crossover with one of the shows. That’s the other part of it is we have these plans, but we’ve got to execute them. That’s sort of next season. We’re still finishing up this season.

They do share a universe, so where there are opportunities, we want to take them. Even with that album cover [with Ryan Hurst’s Beta appearing on Fear the Walking Dead], it was so funny. I mean just by virtue of the fact that there was a scene with all these records in it, and we knew this shared aspect, we didn’t even want to make that big a deal of it. We just wanted it to exist in there so that people might, deep cut-wise, we were hoping one or two people might notice into the future. We didn’t want to make as big a deal about it. It’s just nice, even unto ourselves, between the shows to feel that it’s one world.

That said, unlike reality today, these worlds are so isolated from each other because of a lack of mass communications, mass transportation. In some ways, they are on little islands from each other, so when they can have those crosses, it’s kind of wonderful.

The new show takes place in Nebraska, is that right?

It does, though not exclusively there.

Why Nebraska?

That’s a great question. It was a different place that conceivably could have had their own things going on there. It wasn’t like West Virginia or Southern Georgia. We wanted to show a very different life. It’s not even like we’re honing up on aspects of Nebraskan life. It’s more just conceivably a different place where there would be no cross between them.

That leads in well to my next question. We’ve talked about the similarities between the shows and tie-ins and crossovers, but what makes this show different from the other two, besides just the location?

I mean there’s a lot of things that make it different. The first one is really the situation with which the characters have been living in, relatively, a first world situation. Relatively. Because it’s focusing on young people, even the “adults” in this are on the younger side, they’ve more or less grown up with this. There’s a certain everydayness of this to them, though they’ve been behind walls. It’s a very big deal for these characters to leave these walls. Even though they aren’t like, “Oh, what are these people?” They aren’t shocked upon seeing walkers, but it’s just they haven’t been interacting with them. They haven’t had to interact with them. It’s an incredible act of bravery for some of these people to potentially step out into the world.

You have three Walking Dead shows now, and the movies as well. How concerned are you in terms of saturating the market too much?

In my mind, it really was: There are always going to be zombie stories being told, so why don’t we tell them? If it’s not us, other people will. They always have. There is sort of a signature approach that we have that we do want to mix up as well. We want The Walking Dead to mean different things, and we’re going to continue to do that. I think we’ve reached a point where people enjoy a variety of different stories within the same universe. They understand that. As long as we make these stories different, stand out from one another, they can enjoy all those cool things about that universe, but just feature different characters, different journeys, different emotional pallets, different voices telling those stories.

My goal is to do more and to do more varied entertainment. Walkers versus people is just one aspect of the story, and there’s also a story of the apocalypse, and it’s a story of some people trying to put things back together, some people trying to pull them apart, and there’s just a universe of stories to be told in there. Our job is to make them as different from one another as possible so that that part of it doesn’t feel repetitious. Each show should scratch its own different itch.

Walking Dead Spinoff: AMC Sets End Date

Its premiere is still three months away, but we can already tell you that The Walking Dead: World Beyond will be the shortest Walking Dead series in history...speaking to reporters last week at the Television Critics Assoc. winter press tour, AMC president Sarah Barnett declared that the franchise’s third series would not imitate its predecessors “in substance or form,” before announcing, “World Beyond is a two-season closed-ended series that will tell a very specific and distinct story.”...

https://tvline.com/2020/01/21/walkin...g-two-seasons/

smart move by AMC...maybe they're starting to understand that WD fatigue has set in and people don't want more WD shows/movies/spinoffs...now if they would only set an end date for the flagship WD show...

Have to say this one looks like more of a chick flick on CW. Pretty lame.

I'm having trouble understanding who this show is really made for. The YA audience seems too young for The Walking Dead, while the zombie horror audience has already aged out of the 'tween melodrama stuff.

Perhaps the show-runners think they're going for something along the lines of The Vampire Diaries or The 100, but even those seem targeted at older teenagers and twentysomethings.
