Newsarama reported today that AMC is planning a Walking Dead spinoff show. The show will feature all new characters and be set in the same universe as The Walking Dead. Producers cite "a love of money" and "what the fuck are we gonna do with Breaking Bad ending" as reasons for creating the spinoff. It is rumored (via a rumor we are starting now) that the plot may revolve around a new group of zombie apocalypse survivors and how they build a drug empire in a universe with little to no blood flow.
Walking Dead executive producers Gale Ann Hurd and David Alpert will join Walking Dead creator Robert Kirkman in producing the new show, which means fans can look forward to the same high level of inconsistent writing and revolving door of showrunners that they've come to begrudgingly accept from the main series.
To find out more, we traveled to Kirkman's royal party barge on the Kentucky river, which Kirkman recently purchased (the river, not the barge) using Walking Dead money as part of his quest to eventually control enough land to create his own independent country, Kirklandia.
"This will be the same AMC's Walking Dead that fans know and love," said Kirkman as he unhinged his jaw and swallowed a Wendy's Son of Baconator (the official national bacon cheeseburger of Kirklandia) in one bite. "All of the action will take place in the first two and last two episodes of the seasons while the episodes in between will tread water at an excruciatingly slow pace, normally competent characters will behave like morons for no reason whenever it's convenient for the plot, and all of the female characters on the show will be written as troublemaking shrews."
Kirkman, dressed in a only some loose-fitting shorts and being fanned and being fed french fries by several comely slave girls, then clapped his hands twice, at which point several colorfully dressed armed guards arrived and tossed us into the water.
Our spy cameras recorded Kirkman's next meeting, which you may find interesting:
The show, which has just been greenlit for development, has a planned start date of 2015.
