“The Walking Dead” creator Robert Kirkman has developed “5 Year,” a new project that has officially been picked up by Skybound Entertainment and eOne with plans to develop it as a series.
Kirkman, David Alpert, Bryan and Sean Furst will executive produce the series which will follow various regions of the Earth in the final five years before a fatal meteor is set to collide with the planet. Five seasons of the series are currently planned with an option for further seasons.
Skybound also has an ambitious plan to try and produce localised productions of the story for each market it’s being released in. Kirkman’s last foray into TV was the series adaptation of his comic “Outcast” which lasted only two seasons.
“The Walking Dead” returns with the back half of its ninth season on February 10th 2019.
