The Walking Dead: Dead City – Maggie & Negan
The Walking Dead: Dead City is the first direct spinoff of the main series. This series will see Jeffrey Dean Morgan and Lauren Cohan reprise their roles as Negan and Maggie. They will track a group to Manhattan who have abducted Maggie’s son Hershel (Logan Kim).
This series will be quite the departure from the wooded setting of the main series, with the urban backdrop of apocalyptic Manhattan and a horde of walkers over one million strong. The conflicts between Negan and Maggie will still be an issue, but there is an unknown reason Maggie needs Negan to secure the release of her son. Add to that, Negan is a wanted man. The marshall of a state called New Babylon is tasked with finding and capturing him.
AMC has made no official announcement, but newcomer Mahina Napoleon, who plays a character named Ginny, has stated that she is scheduled to return to New York later in 2023 to begin filming season 2 of Dead City. ‘
The Walking Dead: Dead City will have six episodes that will debut on AMC on June 18, 2023, at 10 p.m. ET. This will immediately follow the midseason 8 finale of Fear the Walking Dead.
