Tales of the Walking Dead Release Date Set for August

The upcoming Walking Dead spinoff anthology series, Tales of the Walking Dead, has received a release date set for August.

The Walking Dead spinoff series, Tales of the Walking Dead, will release in August. The original Walking Dead series premiered in 2010 and centers on a revolving cast of characters as they attempt to survive in the years following a worldwide zombie outbreak. The horror series proved immensely successful and is finally set to conclude after 11 seasons. However, multiple The Walking Dead spin-off series are in production to keep the franchise alive.

One such series is the Tales of the Walking Dead, an anthology show that feature new faces to the franchise as well as established characters. Each hour-long episode will present individual stories of different characters within the zombie franchise and will present the tales in varying tones and styles. The series is designed to expand The Walking Dead universe through the introduction of new characters while expanding the back stories of well-known characters.

AMC recently announced that the Tales of the Walking Dead anthology series will release on August 14 on its cable television channel as well as its streaming service, AMC+. The first two episodes will stream on AMC+ the night of the premiere, with new episodes streaming a week earlier than the network release, as has been the case with the latest seasons of both The Walking Dead and Fear the Walking Dead. Although the show is not serialized, AMC promises that the upcoming series will feature quality storytelling full of high stakes horror and suspense through the point-of-view of varying characters.

Tales of the Walking Dead is shaping up to be a solid continuation to the expanding Walking Dead universe. A star-studded cast has been assembled for the series including Lost in Space’s Parker Posey, X-Men: Apocalypse’s Olivia Munn, Brooklyn Nine-Nine’s Terry Crews, and Top Gun: Maverick’s Danny Ramirez. Samantha Morton will also reprise Alpha for an episode, returning to play the villain prior to her days as leader of the walker skin-wearing Whisperers. The episode is expected to serve as prequel to the events of The Walking Dead’s Whisperer arc due to the fact that Alpha was killed in season 10.

The timing of Tales of the Walking Dead would allow for a lead-in to the conclusion of The Walking Dead season 11. The final season of the original show first premiered in the summer of 2021 and was broken up into three parts, with its final chapter set to air in the fall of 2022. The upcoming anthology series will whet the appetite until The Walking Dead’s highly-anticipated conclusion of the long-running horror series.
