With the conclusion of The Walking Dead series behind us, fans are looking toward the future of The Walking Dead spinoffs. The flagship series ended its story in November 2022, and the first spinoff series, Fear the Walking Dead, will premiere its eighth and final season on May 14, 2023. By 2024 TWDU will consist of one main series and six spinoffs.

June 18, 2023, will see the debut of the first direct spinoff of the main series, The Walking Dead: Dead City. This series features two characters from the main series, Maggie (Lauren Cohan) and Negan (Jeffrey Dean Morgan), as they journey to the city of Manhattan. This series will look much different from the wooded settings seen in most TWD seasons as Maggie and Negan enter the apocalypse-ridden streets of NYC.

The next series scheduled to release in the fall of 2023 will see another fan favorite, Daryl Dixon (Norman Reedus), as he travels further away to France in The Walking Dead: Daryl Dixon. Daryl arrives in France without remembering how or why he is there but is determined to return home.

In 2024 the sixth spinoff series of The Walking Dead, Summit, will see the return of Rick (Andrew Lincoln) and Michonne (Danai Gurira) in what has been called an epic love story. The pair returned for a coda scene in the main series’s final episode, to the fans’ shock and surprise.

The Walking Dead spinoffs

All of the new spinoffs, including the Tales of the Walking Dead anthology series that premiered in the summer of 2022, start with a six-episode first season. The Walking Dead and Fear the Walking Dead did the same in their first seasons. TWD Chief Content Officer Scott M. Gimple has stated that this format could also change with the new series as it did with TWD and Fear TWD.
