Lauren Cohan has big news on the ‘Walking Dead’ spin-off

Lauren Cohan has big news regarding her upcoming Walking Dead derivative series, ghost town. There are three different Walking Dead upcoming spinoffs and one will feature Maggie and Negan. This gives the cast of the original series a chance to continue their stories outside of the main series, with Daryl Dixon getting one and an upcoming Rick Grimes/Michonne series as well.

Here’s what Cohan had to say about his spinoff and what fans can expect.

Lauren Cohan surprises fans with Walking Dead: The Dead City news

The main The Walking Dead the series ended after 13 seasons and Fear the living dead ends with its next season. However, this will not mark the end of the franchise. There are three spin-off series coming and one of them will feature Maggie and Negan traveling to New York.

The spin-off is titled The Walking Dead: The Dead City and follows up on Maggie and Negan’s relationship after the original show ended. Fans will recall that Negan made his first appearance killing Maggie’s husband, Glenn, as she sat there pregnant with their child and watched. While Rick ended up letting Negan into their company after serving time behind bars, Maggie never forgave him. However, by the end of the series, she had accepted him, although she said she would never forgive him for what he had done.

Their story continues in ghost town. In the new series, a group of survivors kidnap Maggie and Glenn’s son, Herschel, and she asks Negan for help. This will bring the franchise to New York, allowing it to have a completely different look to the rest of the series, where Atlanta was the only real big city to show up and the rest were in the country. Along with the skyscrapers and plenty of places where walkers and evil humans can hide, it also seems like Maggie and Negan still aren’t on the same page.

However, this may just be the start. As the show was just announced as a single season, Lauren Cohan spoke with the New York Post and says there is a chance for many more. “We are definitely ready to go beyond [the first season]”, Cohan said. She also said that there is enough material here to carry up to five seasons. It’s just up to the fans to determine if it’s popular enough for more.

What comes for The Walking Dead?

In addition to Maggie and Negan heading to New York for something completely different, the sequels will also open up a lot of new material that the regular show never dealt with. The Daryl Dixon series follows him as he leaves the community to search for Michonne and Rick. However, Daryl ended up getting distracted and sent around the world. The Walking Dead: Daryl Dixon takes place in Paris, France. This is the first time the franchise has come out of the United States, except for a short stint in Mexico in To fear.

The other spin-off series has really excited fans. In it, Michonne and Rick Grimes will finally come together in what Danai Gurira called a “love story.” This series just finished filming and will see what happened to Rick after a CRM helicopter picked him up and took him away from the main series. The final post-credits showed Rick escaping, but being pushed back by the CRM. Michonne seems to come to the rescue.
