AMC's Walking Dead universe is set to welcome a new series into its fold, with two-season limited series spinoff The Walking Dead: World Beyond set to start exploring the post-walker apocalypse landscape starting Sunday, April 12 (possibly also the date of TWD season 10 finale?).
Now we're getting two new teasers: in "Future", the series lets it CRM flag fly – but our heroes don't seem too interested in living under black helicopters. In the follow-up teaser "New World", we get a better (and much more musical) look at our cast – and between both teasers?
The strong sense that The Walking Dead: World Beyond won't be anything like what Walking Dead fans have seen before:
The third series in a franchise that includes global hit series The Walking Dead and original spinoff series Fear the Walking Dead will feature two young female protagonists and focus on the first generation to come-of-age in the apocalypse as we know it. Some will become heroes. Some will become villains. In the end, all of them will be changed forever. Grown-up and cemented in their identities, both good and bad.
The Walking Dead: World Beyond (co-created by TWD CCO Scott M. Gimple and showrunner Matt Negrete and set to be directed by Jordan Vogt-Roberts) stars Julia Ormond (Legends of the Fall), Alexa Mansour (Madame Secretary), Nicolas Cantu (The Good Place), Hal Cumpston (Bilched), Annet Mahendru (The Americans), Aliyah Royale (Major Crimes), Nico Tortorella (Younger), and Joe Holt (The Tick, Scandal).
Ormond's no-nonsense Elizabeth is a commander within the ranks of CRM who's willing to do whatever it takes to secure their society's future. Mansour's Hope is a good-natured rule breaker who lives for the moment: likable and funny on the outside, Hope keeps her sadness buried inside – for now.Cantu's Elton is small for his age in addition to being friendly and an old soul. He also has a black belt in karate. Cumpston's Silas is big for his age. He is a shy loner that scares some kids, but he hates the fact that he scares people.
Mahendru has been cast in the role of Huck, with Royale set as Iris – while Tortorella's Felix is an honorable man of his word who isn't afraid to fight for others' safety and acceptance. Holt's Leo is a solid family man and respected professor with a generous heart and unwavering optimism for the future. He'd risk his life to save the people he cares about.
