"The Walking Dead" is ready to finish off the rest of season four on AMC, and now fans are wondering about the status of the spin-off series. On Feb. 5, E! Online shared new comments made by Gale Anne Hurd about the spin-off. Work on the series is still on-going, but it is still very early on in the process. She teased the following:

It's still in the very early stages because we've been focusing so much on The Walking Dead 1.0. We just finished mixing the last episode of the season on Friday so that's been taking all of our focus, as it should.

Robert Kirkman did reveal more about the spin-off, and he made it clear that the new series is not a true spin-off, according to Wetpaint Entertainment. It is a 'companion series' to "The Walking Dead." Fans will not see any of the core characters from the original pop up on the new series. The new series will tackle the zombie outbreak in a different part of the world, and it will show how these characters survive the rise of the dead.

"The Walking Dead" has become extremely popular on AMC, so the network is trying to capitalize on its popularity and create a new series. The companion series will arrive on the network in 2015.

"The Walking Dead" will return to AMC on Feb. 9.
