With Fear the Walking Dead set to bring back fan favourite Madison Clark (Kim Dickens) in its upcoming eighth season, and a separate series surrounding Melissa McBride’s Carol Peletier and Norman Reedus‘s Daryl Dixon in development, the franchise still has plenty planned.
And if that’s not enough, it’s just been announced that another spin-off is gearing up to start filming very, very soon.
Titled Tales of the Walking Dead, the six-part anthology outing will be shot in Buford, Georgia – and according to the Gainesville Times, it’ll start doing so on Tuesday, January 18. The publication also reports that production will kick off in Hall County, where a location at 5711 Holiday Road has been made to look like a Mini Mart convenience store and a 2 Panchos Mexican restaurant.
Stalwart Productions LLC has leased the site for approximately 53 days for a donation of $30,000, suggests a location agreement.
Channing Powell, who worked as a writer-producer on both The Walking Dead and Fear the Walking Dead, will serve as showrunner.
“The Walking Dead is a show that made television history and attracted an army of passionate and highly engaged fans,” said Dan McDermott, president of original programming for AMC Networks and AMC Studios.
“We see so much potential for a wide range of rich and compelling storytelling in this world, and the episodic anthology format of Tales of the Walking Dead will give us the flexibility to entertain existing fans and also offer an entry point for new viewers, especially on streaming platforms.
“We have seen the appeal of this format in television classics like The Twilight Zone and, more recently, Black Mirror, and are excited to engage with fans in this new way, against the backdrop of this very unique and engrossing world.”
Tales of the Walking Dead is expected to premiere on AMC in the US sometime in the summer.
