The Walkers will have more tales to tell this long, hot summer.
Tales of the Walking Dead–the six-part anthology spinoff series of AMC’s flagship The Walking Dead–now has its debut date–Aug. 14–and several revealing images were unveiled this week. Check out the photos–courtesy of collider.com–on this page.
The series–led by showrunner Channing Powell and executive producer Scott M. Gimple–will contain “six original, standalone stories focused on both new and established characters within the Walker apocalypse,” according to the logline.
The previously announced cast members include Terry Crews, Parker Posey, Poppy Liu, Anthony Edwards, Jillian Bell, Daniella Pineda, Olivia Munn, Danny Ramirez, Loan Chabanol, Embeth Davidtz, Jessie T. Usher and Gage Munroe.
Series producer Michael Satrazemis will direct three episodes, with Haifaa al-Mansour, Deborah Kampmeier and Tara Nicole Weyr helming one show each.
Gimple said the series will feature “shocking and scary stories” with different themes. “Some weeks, about horror,” he said. “Some weeks, black comedy. Different time periods in the apocalypse.”
