The slow and steady The Walking Dead has entertained fans for more than a decade. Currently, it is on its 11th and final season. Now, it’s ready for the fans for one final bite the dust moment. In short what we are saying is that much like the inescapable threat of zombies themselves, The Walking Dead franchise is not going anywhere. This popular long-running AMC series has no signs of stopping. Now, the series is approaching its end and the makers will be finally wrapping up the story. So ultimately we have a new spin-off that comes from the original series to look forward to. So, here’s everything we know so far about the new spin-off series Tales of The Walking Dead so far.
Tales of the Walking Dead Expected Release Date
The creator of the series at AMC hopes that the new spin-off will happen very soon. But the rumors on this project have been circulating around for years because AMC gave it a green light long ago. According to the media portal, the series is set to release in the summer of 2022 through AMC and AMC+. At the moment, the current and the final season of The Walking Dead began airing in August will release a total of 24 episodes in total. In short, everything is completely going to be robust.
What we also know that Tales of The Walking Dead is coming up with a total of six episodes, so it is quite possible to make this show quite bigger. The COO of AMC also told the media portal that this new series is actually meant to be a test for new and potential spin-offs. Fans can only expect to have content with a more experimental The Walking Dead experience.
Cast of Tales of the Walking Dead
If it’s about the cast members of Tales of the Walking Dead is a bit challenging for us. AMC has not actually revealed any of the characters for the show. One thing that the makers of the show have promised is that it will feature both new and old characters. It is no new surprise for us because the AMC makers always make sure to bring new surprises. As we know that the series is an anthology which means every episode will be set in a different setting and different characters. So with this, it will be very tough pointing towards any kind of fixed cast members at this stage is almost impossible.
But we still have space for some speculation on characters who are ready for a comeback. For example, we are expecting
- Rick Grimes (Andrew Lincoln)
- Michonne (Danai Gurira)
- Carol (Melissa McBride)
- Daryl (Normal Reedus)
Plot of Tales of the Walking Dead
The stark departure of this original series has been adapted from an episode anthology series. The spin-off show will be focused on new storylines. It will also feature both new and old characters. As far as the plot of the show is concerned the spin-off show will focus on new storylines and it will also feature both new and returning characters. Here’s what AMC Studios said:
“‘The Walking Dead’ is a show that made television history and attracted an army of passionate and highly engaged fans. We see so much potential for a wide range of rich and compelling storytelling in this world, and the episodic anthology format of ‘Tales of the Walking Dead’ will give us the flexibility to entertain existing fans and also offer an entry point for new viewers, especially on streaming platforms. We have seen the appeal of this format in television classics like ‘The Twilight Zone’ and, more recently, ‘Black Mirror,’ and are excited to engage with fans in this new way, against the backdrop of this very unique and engrossing world.”
The CCO for Walking Dead also reported that this new spin-off show will be best suited to provide new voices and perspectives to the show. On an official note, we still have not received any plot summaries or hints yet. The idea of the series is also very well received and led to yet more spin-offs of their own. In short, we can say that The Walking Dead is here to stay and that too in different spin-off forms. A lot of things can happen in this zombie apocalypse where so many characters are so colorful.
