“The Walking Dead” limited series spinoff “World Beyond” will finally debut in October while running back-to-back with “Fear the Walking Dead”…
Following a delay in debuting earlier this year, “The Walking Dead: World Beyond” will finally arrive on October 4 on AMC
The spinoff limited edition series that will run for two seasons was originally scheduled to drop in April but ultimately the show was delayed due to the coronavirus pandemic. While production on the first season had already wrapped, it appears the producers behind the series along with executives at AMC felt it was better saved until a later date due to “The Walking Dead” season 11 still delayed indefinitely.
So now “The Walking Dead: World Beyond” will debut on Sunday night, Oct. 4 at 10 p.m. ET on AMC following “The Walking Dead” season 10 finale that never actually aired earlier this year. The following week, “The Walking Dead: World Beyond” will follow “Fear the Walking Dead,” which will make its season 6 debut on Sunday night Oct. 11 at 9 p.m. ET.
Along with the announcement about the show’s debut, a new extended trailer for the series dropped during a special Comic Con @ Home panel that previewed whats to come from this latest series set in “The Walking Dead” universe.
“The Walking Dead: World Beyond” will run for 10 episodes in the first season with the primary focus on a group of kids who group up after the zombie apocalypse had already taken a grip on the globe. When two sisters realize that their father is in trouble beyond the safety of the walls that have protected them their entire lives, they gather a group of friends together to make a cross country journey in order to help him. Of course these kids have never known what it’s like to face the perils of the world beyond and they will face all new horrors and atrocities as they seek to survive.
The notorious group with the three rings decorating their helicopter will also play a major role in “The Walking Dead: World Beyond.” Savvy fans of the original show recognize this symbol as the group that rescued Rick Grimes from near death and flew him away from his friends and family living in the Alexander Safe Zone. Rick will get his own series of movies set in “The Walking Dead” universe where that same group will obviously have a massive impact.
For now, enjoy the new extended trailer for “The Walking Dead: World Beyond” ahead of the series’ debut on Sunday night, Oct. 4.
