The Walking Dead: Dead City spin-off gets a new teaser trailer ahead of June premiere

A new teaser trailer has been released for the Walking Dead spin-off The Walking Dead: Dead City, coming to AMC in June

The Walking Dead wrapped up its run after 11 seasons, but there are multiple spin-offs coming our way. There’s The Walking Dead: Daryl DixonThe Walking Dead: Rick & Michonne, and The Walking Dead: Dead City – which will lead the pack with a June 18th premiere. Since The Walking Dead: Dead City will be airing on AMC in just over a month, a new teaser trailer for the show has arrived online today. You can watch it in the embed at the bottom of this article.

Eli Jorné, who has been a writer and co-executive producer on The Walking Dead for multiple seasons, serves as showrunner on The Walking Dead: Dead City, which centers on Maggie and Negan, the characters that have been played by Lauren Cohan and Jeffrey Dean Morgan since season 2 and 6 (respectively) of The Walking Dead. This show will see Maggie and Negan traveling into a post-apocalyptic Manhattan long ago cut off from the mainland. The crumbling city is filled with the dead and denizens who have made New York City their own world full of anarchy, danger, beauty, and terror. The new promo seems to explain why Maggie has Negan join her on this journey, and why they need to go to Manhattan in the first place.

Speaking with Entertainment Weekly, Cohan revealed that The Walking Dead: Dead City will pick up “a few years” after the conclusion of The Walking Dead.

Joining Cohan and Morgan in the cast are Mahina Napoleon (NCIS: Hawai’i), Zeljko Ivanek (Madam Secretary), and Jonathan Higginbotham (Shining Vale). Details on their characters are being kept under wraps, but we do know that Gaius Charles (Fright Night Lightsis playing Izaak, who is “confident, ruthless, and unyielding in the pursuit of what he believes is justice, with the force of his will and his menace. Izaak enjoys his work and intersperses humor with the terror he incites. This is a family man, devoted to building a safe world for his wife and daughters. His journey unearths a loss he is haunted by. He has patience and resilience and walks rather than runs from his mistakes.”

Undead Walking suggests that Karina Ortiz (Orange Is the New Black) and Caleb Reese Paul (The Other Two) may be in the cast as well, but their involvement hasn’t been officially announced at this point.

Cohan, Morgan, and Jorné are executive producing The Walking Dead: Dead City with Scott M. Gimple, the Chief Content Officer of the Walking Dead Universe.

I watched The Walking Dead in its entirety, and will be following the stories of its characters in these spin-offs as well. I’m looking forward to seeing what’s going to happen on The Walking Dead: Dead City.
