It may not have a name yet, but it’s got two seasons already on order…the companion series to The Walking Dead, which AMC ordered a pilot for last September, has already been picked up for two seasons – an initial 6-episode season which would likely lead into the mothership’s sixth season, and a second season of an indeterminate number of episodes to air in 2016.
The companion show will be set in Los Angeles and have all new characters. It stars Cliff Curtis, Kim Dickens, Frank Dillane and Alycia Debnam Carey. Co-creator/co-writer (with Robert Kirkman) Dave Erickson will executive produce and act as showrunner. The Walking Dead production gang of Kirkman, Gale Anne Hurd, Greg Nicotero and David Alpert will also executive produce.
