The flagship series of The Walking Dead franchise is set to end its run later this year with its eleventh season. The series has spawned multiple spin-offs and even some films that remain in some stage of development. Yet, it seems things are moving on yet another series set within the world of The Walking Dead.

Lauren Cohan and Jeffrey Dean Morgan are set to reprise their roles as Maggie Rhee and Negan in an all-new spin-off. The series will be titled Isle of The Dead and feature their characters making their way to what’s left of Manhattan, cut off from the mainland and filled with deadly Walkers. The first season will run for only six episodes, a departure from the other series high episode counts.

Isle of The Dead joins multiple other spin-off projects such as Fear The Walking Dead, Walking Dead: World Beyond, currently untitled Daryl and Carol spin-off, a series of Rick Grimes films, and an upcoming anthology series set within the universe titled Tales of The Walking Dead. No further casting has been announced just yet, but we can probably expect Kien Michael Spiller, who plays Maggie’s son, Hershel Rhee, to return alongside Cohan and Morgan.

The series will be produced by Scott M. Gimple and Eli Jorné, who will also serve as showrunners on the series. The series is currently set to release sometime in 2023 on AMC as well as AMC+. This is the latest spin-off but most likely will not be the last as an era of television comes to an end with The Walking Dead.
