Ahead of “The Walking Dead” universe’s big panel at New York City Comic Con Saturday, AMC dropped six first-look images from the franchise’s upcoming third series on Thursday.
Starring Alexa Mansour and Aliyah Royale, the currently untitled spinoff is set to premiere in Spring 2020 and “will feature two young female protagonists [Mansour’s Hope and Royale’s Iris] and focus on the first generation to come-of-age in the apocalypse as we know it,” according to AMC.
“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,” the cable channel’s description reads.
Along with Mansour and Royale the series stars Nico Tortorella, Annet Mahendru, Nicolas Cantu and Hal Cumpston.
Jordan Vogt-Roberts will direct the series, which is co-created by Scott Gimple, chief content officer of AMC’s “Walking Dead” universe, and franchise veteran Matt Negrete, who will serve as showrunner.
“The new show is really on its own separate path. It’s a different feel and different tone,” David Madden, president of programming, AMC entertainment networks, told TheWrap. “It won’t look anything like the other two shows.” He added that the still-untitled series may not even have “Walking Dead” in its name.
The spinoff series is produced and distributed by AMC Studios.
