The Walking Dead: Dead City will mark the fourth spinoff of The Walking Dead. This series will see Lauren Cohan and Jeffrey Dean Morgan reprise their roles of Maggie and Negan, respectively, on a new mission that will take them to Manhattan. With the conclusion of The Walking Dead in November 2022, fans are eager for new TWDU content. The excellent news, Dead City will debut in 2023.

Dead City will jump ahead a few years from the flagship’s one-year time jump in the series finale episode “Rest in Peace.” The main series gave a glimpse into the lives of the survivors one year after the altercation with the Commonwealth that put Governor Milton (Laila Robins) in prison.

The unlikely pairing of Maggie and Negan had fans curious if Maggie would finally forgive Negan for the brutal killing of her husband, Glenn (Steven Yeun). But an emotional conversation in TWD finale confirmed that although Maggie is grateful to Negan for protecting her son, she will never forgive him for Glenn.

The Walking Dead: Dead City release date

AMC has announced that Dead City will premiere on AMC and AMC+ in April 2023. This is exciting as fans don’t have a long wait until new TWDU content releases.

UPDATE: 01/10/2023 AMC has announced Dead City will release in June 2023.

The official synopsis for Dead City reads:

"Years have passed since we last saw Maggie and Negan and they must now form a tenuous alliance in order to accomplish a dangerous mission. Maggie and Negan journey to the island of Manhattan, which, having been isolated since the beginning of the walker apocalypse, has developed its own unique threats.While in the city, Maggie and Negan encounter native New Yorkers, evade a marshal with a troubled past, and hunt down a notorious killer. But as the pair moves deeper into the gritty depths of the walker-infested city, it becomes apparent that the traumas of their tumultuous past may prove just as great a threat as the dangers of the present."

Cast members joining Cohan and Morgan include Karina Oritz, Michael Anthony, Randy Gonzalez, Gaius Charles, Mahina Napoleon, David Chen, Saint Marino, Caleb Reese Paul, Matthew R. Staley, Charlie Solis, Jesse Reid, John Wu, Jonathan Higginbotham, Alex Borlo, Alex Huynh, Trey Santiago-Hudson, Eleanor Reissa, Željko Ivanek, Aixa Kendrick and Hedley Harlan.

It is an exciting time within The Walking Dead universe, with the release of several spinoffs in 2023. In the meantime, Netflix has recently released season 11 of The Walking Dead to its catalog, allowing fans to watch the entire Walking Dead series in one location.
