AMC's The Walking Dead Universe Will Expand With New Movies And Shows

Walking Dead Season 9

The Walking Dead will never die. At the moment, AMC already licenses out the streaming rights for The Walking Dead to Netflix and Fear the Walking Dead to Hulu. It's no surprise that there are further TV spin-offs planned, but the prospect of a series of Walking Dead movies is quite interesting.

As it enters its 9th season, The Walking Dead shows no signs of slowing down.

According to Bloomberg, AMC is now meeting with media companies for a potential partnership that could bring original Walking Dead movies and spinoff series to streaming services and/or other networks. A new report claims that AMC is working on plans to expand the zombie thriller franchise with new TV movies that could turn into shows, with at least one of them taking place outside the United States.

Producer Scott Gimple is reportedly overseeing development on these new storylines, but it isn't clear when or if any of them will move forward. AMC knows a good thing when they see one, and they're prepared to keep The Walking Dead alive and kicking for as long as possible.

SpaceX to announce private moon flight passenger
Twenty-four men flew to the moon from 1968 through 1972, and half of them made it to the lunar surface. Musk and SpaceX engineers built a small submarine and shipped it to Thailand to help with the rescue.

AMC's hope is to produce several movies that could then branch out into their own series, according to Bloomberg.

During an investor conference earlier this week (as shared on Twitter), AMC's chief executive officer Josh Sapan said the network had plans to continue The Walking Dead franchise "over the next decade-plus", though he didn't offer any specifics. So while there is definitely some Walking Dead fatigue among the fanbase, one that hasn't fully embraced Fear as much as its parent series, overall the property is still going strong. AMC wants Walking Dead to be their Star Wars or Star Trek - a property that will seemingly never end.

With Andrew Lincoln and Lauren Cohan both leaving The Walking Dead during the upcoming ninth season of the long-running series, you would be forgiven for assuming that The Walking Dead is in the stages of winding down, but AMC has big plans for the future of the series.
