If you’re an AMC+ subscriber, you’ll be able to watch each episode a week in advance compared to the regular AMC schedule, which seems to now be a trend with all things The Walking Dead on AMC+. Very tempting if you ask me!
What Is the Series About?
This new anthology series will focus on many characters from the world of The Walking Dead, both new and old.
The first episode follows Terry Crews as Joe and Olivia Munn as Evie. This one will be slightly different than what we’re used to, with both actors’ general sense of humor and how Terry Crews’ roles usually tend to be comedic.
We’re also told that at least some episodes will give us a distant glimpse into the future, which sounds fascinating.
In celebration of the premiere, Terry Crews is taking over Instagram on Sunday.

Each episode in this series will run an hour and feature a different story in The Walking Dead’s universe.
In addition to this spinoff, we also have more that we’re looking forward to, including the Daryl spinoff in France, Maggie and Negan’s Isle of the Dead, and the Rick and Michonne spinoff.
The Rick and Michonne spinoff was announced at a Comic-Con panel. You can watch a video of the announcement and learn more details here. Danai Guirira and Andrew Lincoln said they are heavily involved in this spinoff, which gives us a lot of hope about the quality and what to expect.
Lincoln told the crowd: “I personally can’t wait to get my cowboy boots back on.”
Gurira told the group: “We…got together and have been cooking something up… We owe you the conclusion of this story!”
