‘The Walking Dead: World Beyond’ Gets Premiere Date, Trailer

Horror fans have been waiting with bated breath for the continuing saga that is The Walking Dead to branch out even more with its latest spinoff.

Well, at last weekend’s Comic-Con@Home event, AMC broke the news that The Walking  Dead: World Beyond will finally debut Oct. 4, as reported by collider.com. A trailer for the new limited series can be viewed below.

In related news, it also was announced that World Beyond will premiere on AMC at 10 p.m. (ET) that night, immediately following the long-delayed Season 10 finale of the mothership of the franchise, The Walking Dead, at 9 p.m. That episode is tantalizingly entitled “A Certain Doom”. And, to round out things, AMC added that the season debut of the “middle” show of the franchise–Fear The Walking Dead–will air Oct. 11.

The entire The Walking Dead franchise was affected by the continuing COVID-19 pandemic, with World Beyond being bumped back from its original debut date of Apr. 12 of this year, as reported here in Horror News Network. The new series had wrapped filming at that point, but post-production on a few episodes was hindered by the virus crisis.

As reported, World Beyond–which was first announced way back in July 2018–follows the first generation “raised in a surviving civilization of the post-apocalyptic world.” In the series, two sisters and their two friends leave a safe haven to “brave dangers, living and undead, on an important quest. Some will become heroes. Some will become villains. But all of them will find the truths they seek.”

The series–slated for two 10-episode seasons–stars Alexa Mansour, Aliyah Royale, Annet Mahendru, Nico Tortorella, Nicolas Cantu, Hal Cumpston and Julia Ormond.
