AMC has announced The Walking Dead: World Beyond, a new series in the zombie universe that spun-off onto TV from the comics, with a first-look teaser trailer showing us a brief glimpse of what's to come. The Walking Dead: World Beyond will join The Walking Dead and Fear The Walking Dead as the third show in the expanding world they have built up, giving us new characters to watch and, hopefully, root for.

The series was teased earlier this year, but now we've got actual footage of the characters we'll be spending time with when the show comes to AMC in Spring 2020. It shows the zombie fighting you'd expect from a Walking Dead series, but also suggests that elements of society have been properly rebuilt, too--but there's also a faint whiff of fascism to the characters who appear towards the end of the trailer below.

The new series will star Aliyah Royale as Iris, Annet Mahendru as Huck, Alexa Mansour as Hope, Nicolas Cantu as Elton, and Hal Cumpston as Silas. According to The Hollywood Reporter, it will follow younger characters who have grown up during the time of the zombies, but have been protected from them--they are aware of walkers, but have not had to interact with them prior to the events the series will depict. According to chief content officer Scott M. Gimple's Instagram, the first episode will be called "Brave."

It does not look like it will necessarily connect directly to the original series, beyond being set during the same post-zombie world. Movies spinning off from the original series are still in the works. It's been a big year for the franchise, with comic author Robert Kirkman ending his series earlier this year after 193 issues. Back in December, Telltale's The Walking Dead wrapped up following the collapse of the developer. The television series The Walking Dead has just aired the midseason finale of its tenth season.
