The Spin-Off show will reportedly take place in Walker-Infested Manhattan, NY.

Another Walking Dead spin-off is going into production over at AMC. With a potential 2023 debut, Negan and Maggie will be in what we can only assume to be a Walker infested version of New York’s Manhattan.

The show title announced as, “Isle of the Dead” will launch its first season on AMC & it’s premium service, AMC+, with six episodes.

Stars Lauren Cohan and Jeffrey Dean Morgan will reprise their roles as Maggie and Negan. The teaser artwork for the show features the OG “Don’t open. Dead inside” with the New York skyline crumbling in the background. We first saw the DON’T-OPEN-DEAD-INSIDE in the premiere episode of The Walking Dead as Andrew Lincoln’s Rick character exits the hospital.


The stars have already started making official statements regarding the new spin-off series. “Maggie is very close to my heart and I’m excited to continue her journey against the iconic backdrop of New York City, alongside my friend and collaborator, Jeffrey Dean Morgan,” says Cohan.

Morgan adds: “I’m delighted that Negan and Maggie’s journey continues. It’s been such a ride walking in Negan’s shoes, I’m beyond excited to continue his journey in New York City with Lauren. Walkers in an urban setting has always been such a cool image, but 5th Avenue, Empire State Building, Statue of Liberty? The greatest city in the world? The backdrop is amazing, but it’s the story that Eli Jorné cooked up that is even better. Buckle up folks, Isle of the Dead is going to reinvent the TWD Universe.”

Eli Jorné is co-executive producer of The Walking Dead series. 

By the way, is it just me, or anyone getting serious, “THE LAST OF US” vibes from this?


Which is not going to be premiering in 2022 afterall. “It’s not going to air in 2022 — they are still shooting in Canada. I imagine you will see it in ’23,” HBO and HBO Max CCO Casey Bloys reported to Deadline in an interview. 

Looks like the year 2023 could be pretty catastrophic for the fictional version of New York City.
