Following Sunday's emotional series finale of The Walking Dead, AMC (via FearHQ.com) has shared a first look at some footage from its upcoming Maggie-Negan focused spin-off, Dead City.
It's far from a full teaser, but the brief promo does give us a glimpse of the sworn enemies turned uneasy allies as they make their way through the zombie-infested streets of New York.
In "Rest In Peace," Negan (Jeffrey Dean Morgan) finally apologized for brutally murdering Maggie's (Lauren Cohan) husband Glen all those years earlier. Though Maggie acknowledged that the former leader of the Saviours had changed and thanked him for saving her son, Herschel, she made it clear that she couldn't forgive him for what he took from her.
So, how and why do they wind up taking a trip to the Big Apple together? That hasn't been disclosed yet, but it is worth noting that Dead City takes place a few years after the events of the series finale.
"This spinoff is going to take place a couple of years after the Walking Dead finale, and here’s the problem with those couple of years – we don’t see what happens to these characters," Morgan tells Deadline. "Negan has an opportunity to fall into his old ways in these missing years."
"He is very much a creature of habit, and he knows how to survive. When he was with our group there was another way to survive, and he tried to adapt to those ways. I’m worried whatever happens in these two years away from our group, what he will become and who he will become. And so, when Maggie and he are together again, the chance that Negan isn’t who we see as when we leave him here on the show."
The official synopsis reads: "Dead City finds Maggie and Negan travelling into a post-apocalyptic Manhattan long ago cut off from the mainland. The crumbling city is filled with the dead and denizens who have made New York City their own world full of anarchy, danger, beauty, and terror."
