NEW YORK, NY, October 7, 2019 – AMC Studios announced today that it has successfully sold the third television series in the “The Walking Dead” universe around the world. Amazon Prime Video will carry the new series across Asia-Pacific, the Middle East, Africa, and Europe (excluding Spain and Portugal), while AMC Networks International will air it on AMC in Latin America, Spain and Portugal.
The highly-anticipated 10-episode series is currently in production in the U.S. state of Virginia and is set to premiere in 2020. The third series in the expanding universe of “The Walking Dead” is produced and distributed by AMC Studios and will air in North America on AMC.
“’The Walking Dead’ represents some of the most compelling and coveted IP in the world, so we are extremely thrilled to have lined up international distribution of the third television series in the expanding universe of ‘The Walking Dead’ with Amazon Prime Video and AMC Networks International,” said Valerie Cabrera, senior vice president of worldwide content distribution for AMC Studios. “A franchise and story that is rooted in our collective humanity, the appeal of ‘The Walking Dead’ crosses language and cultural barriers and we can’t wait to share this highly-anticipated series with fans around the globe next year.”
The third installment of the franchise will feature two young female protagonists and focus on the first generation to come-of-age in the apocalypse as we know it. Some will become heroes. Some will become villains. In the end, all of them will be changed forever. Grown-up and cemented in their identities, both good and bad.
The series made its panel debut at New York Comic Con this past Saturday, with participants including Co-Creators Scott M. Gimple and Showrunner Matt Negrete, along with cast members Aliyah Royale, Alexa Mansour, Annet Mahendru, Nicolas Cantu, Hal Cumpston and Nico Tortorella.
