‘The Walking Dead’ Spinoffs Continue March Into 2021

This problem-plagued year of 2020 may be winding down, but The Walking Dead universe is going (and growing) strong as the New Year approaches.

Both spinoffs–Fear The Walking Dead and The Walking DeadWorld Beyond–had key announcements this week regarding their futures, as reported by comicbook.com.

To start, AMC dropped a teaser trailer for World Beyond that gives fans a sneak peek into what to expect from Season 2 of the limited series that will debut sometime next year. No exact date for the premiere of the second half of this 20-episode series has been set at this time so, as they say, stay tuned. And, in the meantime, enjoy the trailer on this page.

As fans will recall, Season 1 ended with Hope (Alexa Mansour) being taken to a research facility, Silas (Hal Cumpston) being arrested and Iris (Aliyah Royale) and Felix (Nico Tortorella) reuniting with Will (Jelani Alladin).

World Beyond showrunner Matthew Negrete said the Season 2 stories will be even more character-driven. “I think for the characters,” he said, “it’s about them learning about themselves. I think there’s a lot more for us to discover about these characters. I think the scope’s going to be a lot bigger, and they’re going to be wrestling with the fate of much bigger things in Season 2.”

As for Fear The Walking Dead, here’s good news for the followers of that series: Chief content officer Scott Gimple this week said scripts are being written for Season 7. And, the nine-episode second half of the show’s sixth season is on schedule to air sometime in 2021.

Gimple said everyone is hard at work polishing up Season 6 while also moving ahead to the following season. “We’ve been working for weeks now, if not months,” he said. “We’re cranking away at Fear The Walking Dead. We have the rest of Season 6 to finish up while we are working on Season 7.”

And, there’s no end in sight for the spinoff, according to showrunners Andrew Chambliss and Ian Goldberg. “We have not had any specific conversations about when the show would end,” Chambliss said. “We’re just going to keep telling stories and do it for as long as AMC says to keep doing it.”
