When The Walking Dead’s Jesus told our main series survivors that their world was about to get a whole lot bigger, he probably didn’t anticipate the even-larger world of the franchise’s third series, which has finally been given an official title in the latest teaser.
Dubbed The Walking Dead: World Beyond, the youth-led show takes us to a new community with some very familiar helicopters, especially if you paid attention to Rick Grimes’ exit from the main series. While we await further word on what’s happening with his character on the film side, it looks like we are set to find out much more about the group he is being taken to through the eyes of several young survivors.
Announced alongside this new teaser is the casting of Emmy winner Julia Ormond, who took home the award for Outstanding Supporting Actress in a Limited Series/Movie for Temple Grandin, also receiving a nomination for her role in Mad Men a couple years later. It looks like she will be playing the leader of this mysterious community. Also joining the cast are Natalie Gold (Succession), Al Calderon (Step Up: High Water), Scott Adsit (Veep), and Ted Sutherland (Fear Street) in recurring guest roles.
The series 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 sounds like more of an adventure than a survival story. The end of the world was their beginning.
Previously announced stars for this spinoff include 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 are 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.
The Walking Dead: World Beyond will debut in spring 2020. Follow Dead Entertainment for all the latest on this series and The Walking Dead franchise as a whole.
