The Walking Dead is such a big hit for AMC, it’s kind of surprising it’s taken so long for the channel to branch out with it. Sure they have merchandise, the original comic books, webisodes, and the Talking Dead. Now the network has finally announced it will be attempting a spinoff. A pilot episode has just been ordered for a Walking Dead companion series.
The problem is, they won’t announce what it’s about. Dave Erickson will be the executive producer and showrunner, as he co-created and co-wrote the pilot with Walking Dead creator Robert Kirkman. Kirkman, Gale Anne Hurd and David Alpert from The Walking Dead will also executive produce. And they say the show will give fans an opportunity to explore “what is going on in the zombie apocalypse in other parts of the world.” But that’s pretty much it.

Briefly: AMC has already released a few briefs teases from the set of The Walking Dead season 5 but now they’ve gone one step further. Almost like you’re visiting the set yourself, they’ve premiered a short scene from the new season. Emphasis on the “short,” in that it’s 30 seconds and feels like an assembly made very quickly by an editor to show the actors what they just shot. But still, it’s The Walking Dead and there are zombies a-plenty.

AMC was pretty light on specifics when they first announced plans for a The Walking Dead spinoff.

Hit the jump to read about what that might look like.

George A. Romero gave birth to the modern zombie with 1968’s Night of the Living Dead, and at present the most popular example of that horror subgenre is The Walking Dead. A Romero-directed episode of the AMC series, then, seems like a natural fit. But sorry, gore junkies, Romero just isn’t interested.
In a recent interview, Romero revealed that he’d actually been approached to work on the horror show, but declined because he didn’t think The Walking Dead focused enough on the zombies. Read his comments after the jump.
