The main Walking Dead show may have ended, but that doesn’t mean AMC isn’t going to keep milking Robert Kirkman’s world of the undead.
The spinoff The Walking Dead: Dead City is set to release in June, and we have a new trailer featuring returning characters Negan (Jeffrey Dean Morgan) and Maggie (Lauren Cohan). Check this out:
The official synopsis reads:
Reunited and it feels so good… Negan (Jeffery Dean Morgan) and Maggie (Lauren Cohan) are back together and are headed to (what is left of) New York City. Can they put their differences aside and learn to trust one another?
Admittedly, a lot of fans are confused at the concept of the Negan/Maggie team-up because it wasn’t really hinted at by the end of The Walking Dead, but the characters are still some of the most interesting to come out of the show, so I’m not really surprised that they would be paired up for some kind of buddy-cop dynamic in a post-apocalyptic zombie world.
Either way, I think some fans are just happy to come back to the world. With The Walking Dead having multiple spinoffs, it’s kind of amazing that the world can keep going so many places. Who knows, maybe Dead City manages to be the Better Call Saul of this franchise, but we’ll just have to wait and see until the premiere.
The Walking Dead: Dead City premieres on AMC and AMC+ on June 18.
