The Walking Dead: Dead City promo confirms a June premiere

A new promo for the spin-off The Walking Dead: Dead City, starring Lauren Cohan and Jeffrey Dean Morgan, confirms a June premiere

While the very short teaser trailer (embedded above) for the upcoming spin-off The Walking Dead: Dead City simply says the show is “coming soon”, we’ve known for a while now that the show is expected to premiere sometime in June 2023. Now a new, also very short promo for The Walking Dead: Dead City has arrived online – you can check it out at the bottom of this article – and it confirms that this is expected to be a June premiere. We just need AMC to announce a specific date.

Eli Jorné, who has been a writer and co-executive producer on The Walking Dead for multiple seasons, serves as showrunner on The Walking Dead: Dead City, which centers on Maggie and Negan, the characters that have been played by Lauren Cohan and Jeffrey Dean Morgan since season 2 and 6 (respectively) of The Walking Dead. This show will see Maggie and Negan traveling into a post-apocalyptic Manhattan long ago cut off from the mainland. The crumbling city is filled with the dead and denizens who have made New York City their own world full of anarchy, danger, beauty, and terror. The new promo seems to explain why Maggie has Negan join her on this journey, and why they need to go to Manhattan in the first place.

Speaking with Entertainment Weekly, Cohan revealed that The Walking Dead: Dead City will pick up “a few years” after the conclusion of The Walking Dead.

Joining Cohan and Morgan in the cast are Mahina Napoleon (NCIS: Hawai’i), Zeljko Ivanek (Madam Secretary), and Jonathan Higginbotham (Shining Vale). Details on their characters are being kept under wraps, but we do know that Gaius Charles (Fright Night Lightsis playing Izaak, who is “confident, ruthless, and unyielding in the pursuit of what he believes is justice, with the force of his will and his menace. Izaak enjoys his work and intersperses humor with the terror he incites. This is a family man, devoted to building a safe world for his wife and daughters. His journey unearths a loss he is haunted by. He has patience and resilience and walks rather than runs from his mistakes.”

Undead Walking suggests that Karina Ortiz (Orange Is the New Black) and Caleb Reese Paul (The Other Two) may be in the cast as well, but their involvement hasn’t been officially announced at this point.

Cohan, Morgan, and Jorné are executive producing The Walking Dead: Dead City with Scott M. Gimple, the Chief Content Officer of the Walking Dead Universe.

Other Walking Dead spin-offs in the works include The Walking Dead: Daryl Dixon and The Walking Dead: Rick & Michonne.
