Fresh off the release of the first photos from the upcoming third series set in The Walking Dead universe, New York Comic Con brought with it an official trailer as well, pulling back the curtain on what this new show is all about. The teaser reveals this series will take place nearly a decade after the start of the apocalypse, following several teenagers who set out from their relatively stable life in an unknown community to pursue a more hopeful future elsewhere.

The group of young protagonists all come from a yet-to-be-named settlement after having grown up there, which leads us to wonder if the comic book's Commonwealth location might tie into this story somehow or at some point, since that community is more of a bastion of those who are trying to restore life as it once was. Those details and more will have to wait for the time being, but this first trailer at least sets the tone and prepares us for what's to come in this new series.

The series has yet to be given a title, but it is set nearly a decade after the start of the apocalypse and will follow two young female protagonists who have come of age knowing only this outbreak. They will be joined by friends and other youths as they seek out to discover themselves and the world around them in what feels like more of an adventure than a survival story.

Starring in the new spinoff show is Alexa Mansour (Unfiltered: Dark Web) as Hope, Nicolas Cantu (The Good Place) as Elton, Hal Cumpston (Bilched) as Silas, Annet Mahendru as Huck, and Aliyah Royale as Iris. Also on board for the series is Nico Tortorella (Scream 4) and Joe Holt (The Punisher). The show is set to debut sometime this spring, but further details are not yet available at this time.
