Earlier this year, AMC announced a spinoff series from the popular drama "The Walking Dead," based on the comic books by Robert Kirkman. On Wednesday, October 30 Wetpaint Entertainment posted the story that Kirkman recently revealed when the spinoff series would begin in relation to the original show.
Now in it's fourth season, "The Walking Dead" has not revealed what caused the zombie apocalypse and executive producers have mentioned they have no interest in showing the cause. Kirkman told TV Guide that the new series could start "one minute before the outbreak" or "it can be the next to last minute" and the start of the show could really start whenever.
Kirkman also confirmed that the spinoff will not take place in Atlanta nor will it be filmed in Georgia like the original show. The location is almost like a character on the series, so it will be important to find someplace unique, possibly a warmer climate. It's unlikely that any characters from the original series would appear on the new show so it can start a whole new story in the zombie apocalypse.
"The Walking Dead" season four is currently airing on Sunday nights at 9 p.m. on AMC. There are four episodes left until the midseason finale in December, and the other eight episodes will begin airing in February. Although the spinoff series has a green light, the project is still in development.
