AMC has revealed that “Dead City” will premiere on June 18 at 10 pm ET on AMC and AMC+. Subsequent episodes of the latest spinoff series will air Sundays at 9 pm ET.
“Dead City” is centered on Negan (Jeffrey Dean Morgan) and Maggie (Lauren Cohan), two characters who have long been at odds with one another. In the main show’s most shocking moment, Negan of course brutally murdered Maggie’s husband Glenn, but the two have surprisingly been able to work together in the wake of Negan becoming one of the good guys.
Up next, they’re traveling to New York City together…
“Walking Dead: Dead City sees Maggie and Negan traveling into a post-apocalyptic Manhattan long ago cut off from the mainland. The crumbling city is filled with the dead and denizens who have made New York City their own world full of anarchy, danger, beauty, and terror.”
The six-episode spinoff series is set two years after the main show’s finale. Eli Jorné (“The Walking Dead”) has been set as the showrunner for “The Walking Dead: Dead City.”
“Eli has created a chaotic, beautiful, grimy madhouse of the dead for Negan, Maggie, and fans of the show eager to discover an unseen and insane world of the TWD Universe,” franchise architect Scott Gimple said in a recent statement. “Lauren and Jeffrey have always been fantastic collaborators and now, we bring that collaboration to the next level with a series that will take these characters to their limits with the world — and each other. All of us are thrilled to take you on an all new, all different TWD epic for the ages.”
