The first trailer for the third series in The Walking Dead‘s universe teases what life looks like after the zombie outbreak.
Debuting at New York Comic Con, the full trailer for the still-untitled third The Walking Dead series has made its way online. Picking up 10 years after the apocalypse, the trailer focuses on the primary cast that has already been announced. While the two prior shows in the franchise have shown the fear and dread of living in a world with zombies, that reality is all these kids have known. However, they also live in a location that is largely protected and allows them to live semi-normal lives. This young ensemble has not experienced life beyond this safe haven though, which inspires them to see what else the world has to offer.
“The third installment of the franchise will feature two young female protagonists and focus on the first generation to come-of-age in the apocalypse as we know it,” an official synopsis released by AMC reads. “Some will become heroes. Some will become villains. In the end, all of them will be changed forever. Grown-up and cemented in their identities, both good and bad. Produced and distributed by AMC Studios, the series will premiere on AMC in spring 2020.”
The series is created by Scott Gimple, Robert Kirkman and Matt Negrete, who will serve as the upcoming spinoff’s showrunner for its ten-episode first season. The pilot the episode will be directed by Jordan Vogt-Roberts (You’re the Worst, Kong: Skull Island). The still-untitled spinoff series stars Aliyah Royale, Alexa Mansour, Annet Mahendru, Nicolas Cantu, Hal Cumpston and Nico Tortorella. It will begin production on its first season this summer in Virginia and will premiere on AMC in spring 2020.
