The zombies have officially swarmed into Manhattan.
Isle of the Dead–the Big Apple-based spinoff of The Walking Dead–this week wrapped production on its pilot episode, according to a report on comicbook.com.
The six-episode first season–starring Jeffrey Dean Morgan and Lauren Cohan as rivals Negan and Maggie–is set in a ruined, crumbling New York City “10 years-plus into the apocalypse,” according to executive producer Scott M. Gimple.
“It is chaotic,” Gimple added. “It has its own cultures–its own warring factions. It’s a madhouse and Maggie and Negan enter it and get swept up in it.”
Cohan said she can’t wait for fans to see the show. “I’d love to give you all kinds of spoilers, but we can’t be doing that,” she said. “But stuff has obviously happened for Maggie and Negan, for these two people in conflict. Suffice to say, it’s thrilling.”
The show–led by showrunner Eli Jorne–is set to premiere on AMC and AMC+ sometime next year. Loren Yaconelli directed the pilot episode from a script by Jorne.
