Tales of the Walking Dead is an episodic anthology series, which means it features standalone stories that are set within The Walking Dead world that don’t necessarily have a direct tie to the main series or any of its other spinoffs. The episodes introduce several new and exciting characters with stories to tell in new and often dynamic ways.
Other unique elements of Tales of the Walking Dead include the fact that each episode is set in different areas of the United States and spans various times during the apocalypse, one episode as far as 30 years after the outbreak. The series is a standalone as well, meaning viewers can watch this series without ever seeing one episode of The Walking Dead or its other spinoffs.
The final episode of season 1 of Tales of TWD will air on September 18, 2022, and this has fans wondering if this series will be picked up for another season.
Tales of the Walking Dead season 2
There have been no announcements about the second season of Tales of the Walking Dead. Showrunner Channing Powell has commented in several interviews that there were about 25 stories created for the series, so there is still plenty of material to carry on for more seasons. They even wrote an entire episode as a musical. Now that might sound silly to some, but for others, this is another excellent way to expand the universe and keep things from getting stale.
For those who haven’t liked Tales of TWD, the first problem is to stop comparing it to the flagship series. This series was never intended to compete with or take the place of The Walking Dead. Viewership of the main series has dropped because many feel the story has gotten repetitive and boring, enter in the spinoffs to cater to a wide variety of fans.
And, if you think that the Rick and Michonne series will be one big happy reunion with all the characters meeting up at Alexandria, think again. Rick and Michonne aren’t the same people who left the communities. These two will be battle-worn because who knows what they have been through during this time.
Sadly, The Walking Dead is ending, and none of the spinoff series will ever measure up to the series that started it all. So, open your minds to the newness of the spinoffs and take them for what they are, new chapters in The Walking Dead universe, and give them a chance.
