Like any good zombie, The Walking Dead is having a very busy life after death. The show’s final episode might have aired last November, but the larger Walking Dead franchise is about to kick out a whole bunch of new spinoffs and sequels. The latest to hit the airwaves is The Walking Dead: Dead City, a continuation of the main series starring two of its most popular characters: Maggie (Lauren Cohan) and Negan (Jeffrey Dean Morgan). As the title and that Escape From New York-esque teaser art suggests, the show shifts our heroes to New York City for a new adventure.
Despite the change of location, the subject is much the same as before: Zombies, zombies, and more zombies, along with assorted other post-apocalyptic shenanigans. You can watch the first trailer for Dead City below.
