This is the third spin-off series in The Walking Dead universe. Fear the Walking Dead just completed the seventh season and will return for season eight. The Walking Dead: World Beyond was a two season limited series that ended last fall. The Carol and Daryl (Norman Reedus) spin off was in the works for March 2023. Recently, Melissa McBride exited the project after the filming location was moved to Europe. And finally, Isle of the Dead starring Jeffery Dean Morgan and Lauren Cohan was announced in March. And we’re still waiting to hear about the Rick Grimes (Andrew Lincoln) movies.
Tales of the Walking Dead consists of six original one-hour standalone episodes focused on both new and established characters within the walker apocalypse. Each episode has its own distinct tone and point of view — but the stakes are high in each story, pushing new, indelible characters with relentless, life-threatening choices and situations. We get to see the apocalypse through different eyes, discovering more worlds, mythos, and mysteries of the Walking Dead.
