Isle of the Lifeless – Spring 2023
We would have laughed in your face should you requested us a yr in the past whether or not we thought Maggie (Lauren Cohan) and Negan (Jeffrey Dean Morgan) can be cordial.
Nevertheless, The Strolling Lifeless Season 11 has discovered the pair co-existing as they notice there’s a widespread enemy within the Commonwealth.
On a stunning notice, AMC pulled the set off on Isle of the Lifeless, a Manhattan-set spinoff that includes the pair in March 2022.
The sequence is “a post-apocalyptic Manhattan way back lower off from the mainland,» in keeping with the community.

Daryl Spinoff – Summer time 2023
The sequence was introduced concurrently the ultimate season announcement in 2020, but it surely was initially set to be a Carol (Melissa McBride) and Daryl (Norman Reedus) present.
There was a substantial amount of skepticism that the sequence would truly see the sunshine of day provided that Tales and Isle of the Lifeless have been ordered afterward and are already nearer to a premiere date than this one.
“Melissa McBride has given life to one of the vital fascinating, actual, human and fashionable characters in The Strolling Lifeless Universe,” the cabler mentioned in a press release.

That is about as a lot as we learn about this one.
