Bring on more Walking Dead

In fact, beyond the deal AMC is reportedly drawing up to make Norman Reedus the new star of the show, the network is also actively developing a plan to keep The Walking Dead on our screens for at least ten more years. AMC have already sold streaming rights for The Walking Dead to Netflix, and Fear the Walking Dead to Hulu. More on the potential Walking Dead movies and spin-offs below. As this endeavor will cost quite the pretty penny, AMC has been talking to several large media companies about partnering on the projects which are said to collectively cost several hundred million dollars.

As it enters its 9th season, The Walking Dead shows no signs of slowing down.

A few days ago, we reported on a Goldman Sachs Communacopia Conference where AMC Networks CEO Josh Sapan revealed plans to expand The Walking Dead universe throughout the next decade and beyond. The latter was one of the spearheaders behind turning AMC into an original programming juggernaut, and there's a very good chance he could be responsible for another network or streaming service's boost in popularity, if this Walking Dead scenario bears fruit.


These unnamed sources also say that a spin-off could also be set in other countries outside the United States. Scott Gimple, who was named Chief Content Officer for The Walking Dead franchise after serving as show-runner for the past four seasons of the flagship series, will be overseeing development of "different narrative possibilities".

The Walking Dead's ninth season is scheduled to begin October 7 on AMC. No details were given at the time, but it appears the network's general Walking Dead strategy has come out, and basically, it involves branching out however it can, wherever it can.

"Ownership of that content - call it "Walking Dead, ' 'Fear the Walking Dead" - allows us to determine the fate of that content, so we can navigate as we choose", Sapan said at the conference.
