The New Walking Dead Spinoff Is Titled World Beyond!

-

AMC tonight revealed the title of the upcoming The Walking Dead spinoff in a new teaser for the series premiering in the spring of 2020. You can watch the teaser for The Walking Dead: World Beyond in the player below.

It was also announced that Emmy winner Julia Ormond (Gold Digger, Temple Grandin, Mad Men) has joined the cast of The Walking Dead: World Beyond. A series regular, Ormond will play Elizabeth, the charismatic leader of a large, sophisticated and formidable force. Co-created by Scott M. Gimple and showrunner Matt Negrete, The Walking Dead: World Beyond also stars Aliyah Royale, Alexa Mansour, Annet Mahendru, Nicolas Cantu, Hal Cumpston and Nico Tortorella.

“We are thrilled to have Julia join our merry band. I’m grateful for the talent, grace, intelligence, and humor she has brought to our set, our show and to this role. We — and the audience — are very lucky to have Julia helping bring this new world of the Walking Dead to life,” said Gimple.

“I’m so thrilled to be working with The Walking Dead team — I absolutely love how they write for women in particular; a lovely, talented cast and great to be back with AMC,” said Ormond.

Also joining the show’s series regulars in recurring guest roles this season are Natalie Gold (Succession, The Land of Steady Habits) as Lyla, a mysterious figure operating in the shadows on behalf of the cause she believes in; Al Calderon (Step Up: High Water) as Barca; Scott Adsit (Veep, 30 Rock) as Tony; and Ted Sutherland (Fear Street, Rise) as Percy.

The Walking Dead: World Beyond will focus on the first generation raised in the zombie apocalypse. 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 is executive produced by co-creators Gimple and showrunner Negrete, Robert Kirkman, Gale Anne Hurd, David Alpert and Brian Bockrath.

The series will be available on Amazon Prime Video across Asia-Pacific, the Middle East, Africa and Europe; AMC Networks International will air the series on AMC in Latin America, Spain and Portugal.
