AMC Network executives have reportedly hinted that the company is developing a second “The Walking Dead” spin-off.
The company has “hired creative people that have pitched story outlines. We feel very good about the development of that series” said AMC Networks COO Ed Carroll during a conference call with investors Thursday.
Executives declined to offer specific details about the new series, what would be the third on the air at present. A new series has been expected since former flagship showrunner Scott Gimple switched to a new job to oversee the creative future of the franchise.
The talk comes as the flagship series’ ratings have been waning and major cast members have exited the series, though some are expected to return for several feature-quality standalone films currently planned.
