The Walking Dead Spin Off Series Gets Pilot Order From AMC

Yep, AMC have ordered a spin-off series pilot to its hugely successful The Walking Dead. Executive Producer Robert Kirkman told Entertainment Weekly:

“There are many corners of The Walking Dead universe that remain unseen in the shadows,” Kirkman said. “Being given the opportunity to shine a light into those corners and see what lurks out there is an absolute thrill. I know the fans are anxious to hear what Dave [Erickson] and I have been cooking up for this new universe of The Walking Dead, and I’m happy to be one step closer to sharing it with them.”

There were rumours the spin off would be an origin of the outbreak series leading up to the start of The Walking Dead series but I guess they realise what a boring shitbag Rick is so they are staying clear! Yeah, okay, I’ve got it in for Rick… Zombie nip him now! (I jest, I jest)
