New 'Feminist' Spin-Off Series Confirmed By The Walking Dead Writers

New 'Feminist' spin-off series confirmed by The Walking Dead writers.

The chief explained: “With its focus on the next generation of survivors led by two young female protagonists, we think this third series is a perfect gateway to advance the narrative of this universe in ways that are multi-generational, fresh and unexpected.”

Considering The Walking Dead has displayed female powerhouses like Danai Gurira’s 'Michonne,' Lauren Cohan’s 'Maggie,' and Samantha Morton’s 'Alpha,' it’s reasonable the writing team knows how to handle the badass ladies.

The site’s description says 'production is seeking people of all ethnicities, ages, genders, and types to play various characters throughout the series; particularly looking for actors with a background in movement or dance, with open availability and a flexible time schedule.'

While there have been criticisms that The Walking Dead isn’t as good as it used to be, there’s still an unwavering fanbase out there that’s craving to see more walkers climb out of the grave.

It’s intriguing to take the note of the show’s course of events. Honing in on the first generation of humanity brought into the world after the undead outbreak, it prods we’ll be going much further into the future of the franchise.

On The Walking Dead, Season 9 had few time skips and presented an older version of 'Judith Grimes.' If AMC is biasing on the next generation of humans, the show could likewise have a dystopian Young Adult vibe in accordance with a popular franchise like The Hunger Games and The Maze Runner.
