The Walking Dead Companion Series Gets Pilot Order

Graphic Policy

WalkingDeadSeason3Poster-610x903Deadline has reported that The Walking Dead companion series has gotten a pilot green light. This is a good first step, but the series isn’t 100% guarantee since it isn’t a straight-to-series pickup, like the original The Walking Dead was. Calling the first episode a “pilot” is a good sign though.

Robert Kirkman, Gale Anne Hurd and David Alpert from The Walking Dead are also executive producers of the new show and it is being produced by AMC Studios. Dave Erickson, who co-created and co-wrote the pilot with Kirkman, will serve as an executive producer and showrunner. The show will go into production later this year.

The series will explore what’s going on in other parts of the world during the zombie apocalypse.

The fifth season of The Walking Dead returns to AMC on October 12.
