The Walking Dead spinoff, Tales of the Walking Dead, will premiere in two weeks. On August 14 at 8 p.m. ET, the first episode of this new series will air on AMC. Set as an anthology series, each episode will be a stand-alone story featuring new characters to The Walking Dead universe. This season will only feature one recurring character, Alpha (Samanta Morton), from the flagship series.

Anyone can watch this series, even if they have never viewed an episode of The Walking Dead or any of its other spinoffs. However, fans of the main series will be happy to learn that showrunner Channing Powell has stated that there could be several Easter eggs for fans sprinkled in this series.

Tales of the Walking Dead’s first season is comprised of six episodes, and each one will take place in a different part of the United States. This will be an exciting premise as it will be interesting to see how other areas have handled the outbreak.

This series has an outstanding cast, including Terry Crews, Olivia Munn, Jessie T. Usher, Danny Ramirez, Loan Chabanol, Embeth Davidtz, Gage Munroe, Lauren Glazier, Daniella Pineda, Anthony Edwards, Parker Posey, Poppy Liu, Jillian Bell, Rachael Markarian, Eric Tiede, Matt Medrano, Ari Loeb, Marvin LaVoilette, William J. Simmons, Nick Basta, Natalie Karp, Kevin J. Johnson Robert Tinsely and Sarah Graham.

Tales of the Walking Dead – set in the future

During an interview with Collider, Powell made a fascinating comment. The interviewer mentioned that several episodes appear to occur at the beginning of the outbreak and was curious to know if all of the stories occur at the onset. She stated that that isn’t the case; the episodes are filmed in very different time settings, even “35 years into the future.” Saying not to quote her on that or Scott (M. Gimple, COO) would kill her. So, please don’t tell her I quoted her.

But, this is a fascinating concept. To see what things could be like 30 years or so into the future of this apocalypse. The comic book gives us a look 20 years into the future, but that future isn’t a possibility because key players are dead.

We don’t know much about the individual episodes other than some of the pairings and little bits teased in the official trailer, so it is difficult to guess which episode could be a future one.

Don’t miss Tales of the Walking Dead on August 14 on AMC. On this same date, AMC+ will air the first two episodes of this series.
