Watch out, Los Angeles. A zombie apocalypse is coming for you.

The Walking Dead” spinoff will be taking over L.A., Variety has confirmed.

The pilot, which will be shot in early 2015, will be set on the West Coast, though it has not been confirmed where the new series will be filmed, as TV Line first reported. The series that is a monster hit for AMC is currently filmed in Atlanta.

“Almost from the beginning of ‘The Walking Dead,’ fans have been curious about what is going on in the zombie apocalypse in other parts of the world,” said Charlie Collier, AMC president in September when the network confirmed the pilot order.

“Walking Dead” creator Robert Kirkman, Gale Anne Hurd and David Alpert will serve as executive producers along with showrunner David Erickson.

“After 10 years of writing the comicbook 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,” Kirkman said in September. “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 declined to comment.

    Left LA back in May after 25 years. Had a better job there, but I don’t miss the nuts, fruits and flakes, illegal aliens, cars with deep bass speakers, traffic and stinky air

  2. I got a feeling that it will claim that the setting in Los Agneles Location but thank to tax program that it will be tape in the Georgia or Canada location.

    • I still remember that the CA Gov. Brown make all kind of promise that his new tax program will be able to keep the film/tv job in Hollywood,Ca and no longer going to other state to tape film/tv show. I will be surprised that show will be tape in Hollywood California. Look at happened to ABC Mistresses,the third season will be tape in Canada because they was promise all kind of tax break.

      The zombie cast will all be rich actors and illegals
