AMC Networks today announced that new episodic anthology series Tales of the Walking Dead will premiere Sunday, August 14 at 9pm ET/8c on AMC and AMC+, with the first two episodes streaming that same night on AMC+.
Subsequent episodes of the latest series within the expanding The Walking Dead Universe will stream one week early, beginning Sunday, August 21.
Tales of the Walking Dead consists of six original one-hour standalone episodes focused on both new and established characters within the walker apocalypse.
Each episode has its own distinct tone and point of view – but the stakes are high in each story, pushing new, indelible characters with relentless, life-threatening choices and situations.
We get to see the apocalypse through different eyes, discovering more worlds, mythos, and mysteries of the Walking Dead.
Tales of the Walking Dead stars Olivia Munn (The Newsroom, X-Men: Apocalypse, Six), Samantha Morton (The Walking Dead, Harlots), Terry Crews (Brooklyn Nine-Nine), Parker Posey (Lost in Space), and Anthony Edwards (Inventing Anna, WeCrashed).
The cast also includes Poppy Liu (Dead Ringers), Jillian Bell (Rough Night), Loan Chabanol (Fading Gigolo), Embeth Davidtz (Old, Ray Donovan), Jessie T. Usher (Shaft, The Boys), Daniella Pineda (Cowboy Bebop), and Danny Ramirez (Top Gun: Maverick).
Haifaa al-Mansour (Good Lord Bird, Motherland), Deborah Kampmeier (Star Trek: Picard) and Ron Underwood (Fear the Walking Dead, Big Shot) will each direct one episode with series producer Michael Satrazemis (The Walking Dead, Fear the Walking Dead) set to direct three episodes.
Produced by AMC Studios, Tales of the Walking Dead is executive produced by Scott M. Gimple, chief content officer of the Walking Dead Universe and showrunner Channing Powell.
