“The Walking Dead: World Beyond” will get a new debut date later this year after AMC announced the spinoff series would no longer premiere on April 12 as initially expected.
The news was announced via “The Walking Dead” Twitter while adding that the show would now debut “later this year” but no specific date confirmed.
The Walking Dead: World Beyond is moving its premiere date from Sunday April 12th to later this year.

While AMC didn’t state out right that “The Walking Dead: World Beyond” was pushed back due to the ongoing coronavirus pandemic, that was certainly the cause because the show has already wrapped production on its first season.
The problem is “Fear the Walking Dead” was in the middle of production for season 6 when the show went on hiatus due to the coronavirus outbreak. The current pandemic will also likely delay the start date for filming “The Walking Dead” season 11, which was expected to begin production in May with both series filming in Georgia.
Now with both the flagship “Walking Dead” show and “Fear the Walking Dead” facing possible delays, it appears AMC is holding onto “The Walking Dead: World Beyond” just in case the network is forced to work with a lot of open airtime without their most popular series ready to debut.
“The Walking Dead: World Beyond” is a two-season limited series that will follow a group of teenagers that grew up after the zombie apocalypse had already started and the show is expected to tie back — at least loosely — to “The Walking Dead” and “Fear the Walking Dead” with a group that has been seen on both series previously featuring the three circles symbol painted on their vehicles.
A new debut date for “The Walking Dead: World Beyond” will be announced later this year.
