AMC Developing ‘Walking Dead’ Companion Series

AMC announced today that it is developing a companion series to its hit show, “The Walking Dead.”

Proposed new series would come from “Walking Dead” comics creator Robert Kirkman and executive producers Gale Anne Hurd and Dave Alpert.

The companion series has a target on-air date of 2015.

In a release, Charlie Collier, AMC’s president and general manager said, “Building on the success of the most popular show on television for adults 18-49 is literally a no-brainer. We look forward to working with Robert, Gale and Dave again as we develop an entirely new story and cast of characters. It’s a big world and we can’t wait to give fans another unforgettable view of the zombie apocalypse.”

Kirkman added, “After 10 years of writing the comic book series and being so close to the debut of our fourth, and in my opinion, best season of the TV series, I couldn’t be more thrilled about getting the chance to create a new corner of The Walking Dead universe. The opportunity to make a show that isn’t tethered by the events of the comic book, and is truly a blank page, has set my creativity racing.”

AMC announced last week a spinoff show from its other big hit, “Breaking Bad,” which would actually be a prequel focused on Bob Odenkirk’s memorable character, Saul Goodman.

Season four of “Walking Dead” premieres on Oct. 13.
