Well, that must have been some impressive pilot episodes that the top brass at AMC got to see of the new (Un-Titled) The Walking Dead companion show. All we know right now is that the show will be set in Los Angeles and focused on new characters and storylines (duh). The show’s first season will consist of six one-hour episodes and premiere on AMC in late summer. The show’s second season will air in 2016.

Robert Kirkman, Gale Anne Hurd, Greg Nicotero and David Alpert from “The Walking Dead” are executive producers of the new series, which, like the original, is being produced by AMC Studios. Dave Erickson (“Marco Polo,” “Sons of Anarchy”), who co-created and co-wrote the pilot with Kirkman, is an executive producer and showrunner. The series will star Cliff Curtis (“Missing,” “Gang Related”), Kim Dickens (Gone Girl, “Sons of Anarchy”), Frank Dillane (Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince) and Alycia Debnam Carey (Into the Storm).

So, what do you guys think of The Walking Dead having a companion show? Is it too much zombie apocalypse or do you desire more from the setting of The Walking Dead?
