Tales of The Walking Dead was an episodic anthology series that featured standalone stories and introduced new characters to the universe. Season 1 added many outstanding actors to the TWD Family, including Terry Crews, Olivia Munn, Parker Posey, Anthony Edwards, Jullian Bell, and Danny Ramirez.

This series gave great insight into how people reacted to the outbreak in different parts of the country. Tales of TWD was set in several different periods of the outbreak, including one episode that took place 30 years in the future. In the third episode, “Dee,” fans of The Walking Dead were treated to a new story in the life of Alpha (Samantha Morton) during a time when she was known as Dee. It was a fantastic addition to the storyline of a character viewers thought they knew everything about.

Will there be a Tales of the Walking Dead season 2?

In a recent interview with Collider, Chief Content Officer for TWD, Scott M. Gimple, was asked if Tales of TWD would return for a second season. He appeared hopeful to revisit this series after the current series that are in production are complete. It stated that since Tales of TWD featured standalone stories, there was no cliffhanger where things needed to be wrapped up.

Gimple would also share several other projects on the back burner as creates within TWDU gear up for the next phase.

"Oh, yeah. I hope we do. We’re focusing on these classic characters, this year. The thing with Tales, it didn’t end on this cliffhanger where you’ve gotta get back to that. It’s an anthology show. So, I’m hoping that we can get back to it, but it’s probably gonna be catch all as catch can, as far as within all the other shows. This year, though, is about focusing on these classic character shows, but also, we’re still wrapping up Fear the Walking Dead. And then, there are other projects that have been on the burner, as well. We’re getting the next phase ready."
