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

How AMC Plans To Keep The Walking Dead Franchise Busy For Another Decade

A new story at Bloomberg lays out AMC's ambitious, possibly insane, plan to continue The Walking Dead in some shape or form for the next 10 years, and possibly longer. Citing unnamed sources, the news organization reports that AMC is talking to "several large media companies about partnering on the projects" and that that it could cost "several hundred million dollars".

The Walking Dead will never die. In fact, beyond the deal AMC is reportedly drawing up to make Norman Reedus the new star of the show, the network is also actively developing a plan to keep The Walking Dead on our screens for at least ten more years. Those companies weren't specified, but perhaps it speaks to the both the Walking Dead brand and the AMC Networks brand that the team is shooting so high with their near-future goals.

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

Season 9 of the show kicks off on 7 October in the United States and 8 October on Fox here.

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.

Passengers bleed after crew forgets to maintain cabin pressure
All the passengers in flight were instructed to use the Emergency oxygen masks after the knowing that cabin pressure was lost. The crew has been taken off duty and Aircraft Accident Investigation Bureau (AAIB) has started an investigation, DGCA added.

While the ideas are still at an early stage and nothing is confirmed, there are apparently hopes to spin off several more variations on the show, including examples set in other countries to take advantage of the series' global following.

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. 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.

"We have a plan that goes well into the future", Sapan said on the September 12 conference call, according to Bloomberg News on Wednesday.

The Walking Dead will return to AMC on October 7, 2018.
