Since AMC has pretty much nothing of real value anymore (and yes, I'm even lumping 85% of Better Call Saul into the mix)...better make another Walking Dead show...even tho their ratings are tanking.
AMC refuses to let The Walking Dead die. Ratings for the zombie show have been in a steady decline, and yet AMC has plans to make Walking Dead movies featuring Andrew Lincoln as Rick Grimes, as well as continue the Walking Dead spin-off Fear the Walking Dead. But even that’s not enough. There is now yet another Walking Dead spin-off in active development. What’s it about? AMC isn’t saying, but I’m going to take a wild guess and say it involves zombies.
When The Walking Dead returned with new episodes this month, it’s viewership was down 44%. That’s a huge drop, but the series is also the only real hit AMC has right now – so they refuse to give up. At this point, it seems not even a head-shot could put this show down. Rather than just hold fast with what they have already, AMC is going to test their luck with yet another spin-off.
During AMC’s quarterly earnings call (via Deadline), CEO Josh Sapan mentioned a second Walking Dead spin-off, and COO Ed Carroll added that this spin-off is in “active development.”
