The Walking Dead: World Beyond is just a few weeks away from premiering on AMC. This is the second spin off series from The Walking Dead universe. The netwrok released new key art for the show and a new promo video. Check out the companion art and video below. The first image was released last week. The second image and video were released today.
TWD: World Beyond is set ten years into the Apocalypse. Which puts the show almost in line with the current TWD season. The story centers on the children who grew up in the apocalypse. The group lives in a well protected community in Nebraska, that is also a part of the mysterious group, CMR or the helicopter people. All we know about the CMR is that they control three communities. No one gets in, and no one gets out. Looks like that latter part is wrong. Here’s a press release from AMC.
The Walking Dead: World Beyond expands the universe of The Walking Dead, delving into a new mythology and story that follows the first generation raised in a surviving civilization of the post-apocalyptic world. Two sisters along with two friends leave a place of safety and comfort to brave dangers, known and unknown, living and undead on an important quest. Pursued by those who wish to protect them and those who wish to harm them, a tale of growing up and transformation unfurls across dangerous terrain, challenging everything they know about the world, themselves and each other. Some will become heroes. Some will become villains. But all of them will find the truths they seek.
Co-created by Scott M. Gimple and showrunner Matt Negrete, The Walking Dead: World Beyond stars Aliyah Royale, Alexa Mansour, Annet Mahendru, Nicolas Cantu, Hal Cumpston, Nico Tortorella and Julia Ormond. Produced and distributed by AMC Studios, the series is executive produced by Gimple, Negrete, Robert Kirkman, Gale Anne Hurd, David Alpert and Brian Bockrath.
