While it took a bit longer than anyone at the show or the network could've ever expected, AMC's upcoming two-season Walking Dead limited series spinoff The Walking Dead: World Beyond will finally be making its debut on Sunday, October 4, at 10 pm (preceded by the tenth season finale of the flagship series, and joined by the sixth season of Fear the Walking Dead a week later). Told from the perspective of a younger generation of survivors who grew up in a more structured, organized community and now find themselves venturing out into an unknown and deadly world, the series will offer viewers a unique perspective on greater "walker universe" (though they're called "empties" here) while also answering lingering questions from both The Walking Dead and Fear the Walking Dead.
Now here's your look at the newest teaser for AMC's The Walking Dead: World Beyond, as our heroes leave behind the lives they've known to sketch out a new beginning in an unknown world:
The Walking Dead: World Beyond delves into a new mythology and story that follows the first generation raised in a surviving civilization of the post-apocalyptic world. Two sisters along with two friends leave a place of safety and comfort to brave dangers, known and unknown, living and undead on an important quest. Pursued by those who wish to protect them and those who wish to harm them, a tale of growing up and transformation unfurls across dangerous terrain, challenging everything they know about the world, themselves and each other. Some will become heroes. Some will become villains. But all of them will find the truths they seek.
Season 1, Epsiode 1 "Brave": Iris welcomes an enigmatic ally to their community while Hope questions the visitor's motives. A message upends the sisters' worldview, forcing them to decide between the safety of their home and the uncertainty of the world beyond. Directed by Jordan Vogt-Roberts, and written by Scott M. Gimple and Matthew Negrete.
Season 1, Episode 2 "The Blaze of Glory": Hope and Iris disagree on the mission. Felix and Huck pursue the group as Felix confronts his past.
