AMC's "The Walking Dead" spin off to be a prequel?
AMC announced a few months back that they were in the early stages of developing a spin off series to "The Walking Dead", now we are hearing that the new series "will be a prequel of sorts, one that would chronicle the early days of the epidemic and the effort to contain it."
Creator Robert Kirkman previously told IGN that the new series would be set in a different location and would feature completely different people. "It
definitely won’t be set in Georgia… It’s important to us that this show
exists on its own. The spin-off has to be a show worthy of existing, or
else we've all sold out."
