AMC announced that The Walking Dead will be getting a spin-off series after the crazy success it has been in its past three seasons, according to THR. The new show will be helmed by comic book creator Robert Krikman and executive producers on the current show, Gale Anne Hurd and Dave Alpert.
The Walking Dead universe is a vast one with many untold story lines waiting in the shadows. The franchise has already produced over 100 comic book issues, three television seasons and video games and there’s still much more to tap into.
That doesn’t mean that what we’re going to get will be good. We’ve seen plenty of TV spin-offs either fail miserably or crash and burn before they even got started. We obviously wouldn’t want to see that from our favorite zombie killers. Here are some brilliant suggestions from yours truly.
