What’s in a name? Apparently, quite a lot. AMC announced that its Manhattan-set Walking Dead spinoff would be called Isle of the Dead. Five months later, the show has gotten a new title. And it is…? Drumroll, please. The Walking Dead: Dead City, per Entertainment Weekly.
The next offshoot of the long-running zombie drama will follow all the way to New York. This will be between Lauren Cohan’s embattled Maggie and Jeffrey Dean Morgan’s Negan, the reformed villain who brutally murdered her husband before her eyes. Cut off from the mainland for ages, “the crumbling city,” the network teased, is filled with the dead and denizens who have made New York ity their own world full of anarchy, danger, beauty and terror.”
Eli Journé, a writer and executive producer for the Walking Dead TV series, has been chosen to be the showrunner for a new Walking Dead series. The new series will be overseen by Scott M. Gimple, who is also the Chief Content Officer for the entire Walking Dead franchise. The new series will premiere after the original Walking Dead TV series finishes its 11th season.
As Dead-heads know, AMC is also creating a Daryl-and-Carol show. Norman Reedus and Danai Gurira will star in it. There is also a limited series that will finish the story of Rick and Michonne.
What do you think about the new title for the book? Is it better, worse or just okay?
