On paper, the upcoming “The Strolling Lifeless: Lifeless Metropolis” would seem like the weakest of the three spin-offs developing. While each Maggie (Lauren Cohan) and Negan (Jeffrey Dean Morgan) are fascinating characters, a complete sequence centered on their contentious relationship shouldn’t be essentially the most engrossing thought.

To fight this, AMC has given them a fantastic backdrop – a post-apocalyptic New York Metropolis way back minimize off from the mainland and a spot the place they not solely need to take care of the undead, however the remnants of civilization amidst the crumbling metropolis blocks.

Showing at AMC’s 2023 Winter TCA presentation, Cohan says she’s an enormous fan of the brand new surroundings and finds the setting an “disagreeable wake-up name” with new terrain that’s “simply unwelcoming” she tells Slashfilm. It additionally explores the notions of forgiveness and getting on with life.

Showrunner Eli Jomé provides that this can be a world we’ve by no means seen within the “Strolling Lifeless” universe earlier than, and in consequence, it takes affect from some fairly totally different sources than the now-finished mothership sequence:

“‘The Strolling Lifeless’ began with a fusion of basic stuff like John Ford, after which, , Romero, and fuse these collectively. These are extra, I’d say, up to date horror references, however a little bit additional down the road, like John Carpenter’s ‘Escape from New York’ and [Walter Hill’s] ‘The Warriors.’”

Like the opposite new spin-offs on the way in which, this can encompass simply six episodes, and it’s not but clear if it is going to proceed on past one season.

Shot final Fall, the sequence is on monitor for a June 2023 launch and would be the first of the brand new spin-offs to hit the display screen. The Daryl Dixon-centric second arrives within the Fall with the Rick & Michonne-led third hitting early 2024.
