Stay tuned for more updates on The Walking Dead: Dead City and the thrilling adventures of Maggie and Negan.
We’re definitely set up to go beyond [the first season]. The TV landscape is a little different and a little more trepidatious than it used to be. But we’re really hoping the show does well and can lead to a second and third and fourth or fifth season. We feel like we’ve just cracked open the egg — now we should make an omelet.

The Walking Dead: Dead City Sets the Stage for a Thrilling Manhattan Adventure
The upcoming series, The Walking Dead: Dead City, is already paving the way for an exciting and expansive storyline featuring Maggie and Negan at the forefront. Negan’s intriguing connection to The Croat, a former subordinate during his leadership of the Saviors, adds layers of potential narratives beyond Hershel’s kidnapping. Additionally, the bustling streets of New York City introduce a host of new survivors, including Perlie Armstrong portrayed by Gaius Charles, who might embark on their own captivating journeys in future seasons.
Interestingly, the production of additional seasons for The Walking Dead: Dead City might commence earlier than expected. Although AMC has yet to officially confirm Season 2, Mahina Napoleon, a newcomer to the show, hinted at the possibility of its arrival back in April. However, the ongoing writers’ strike could potentially affect the production of Season 2.
Should The Walking Dead: Dead City reach its desired milestone of Season 5, as hoped by Lauren Cohan, it could set a positive precedent for other spinoffs within The Walking Dead universe. Series such as The Walking Dead: Daryl Dixon and The Walking Dead: Rick & Michonne have the potential to extend beyond their initial seasons, laying the foundation for the next captivating chapter. With a wealth of unexplored stories awaiting Maggie and Negan in the vibrant backdrop of the Big Apple, The Walking Dead: Dead City is poised for many more thrilling seasons to come.
