AMC has revealed the first teaser for The Walking Dead's newest spin-off series, and it looks like the kids will not be all right in this new series. The teaser, below, features the new show's young stars — Alexa Mansour, Aliyah Royale, Nicolas Cantu, and Hal Cumpston — along with The Americans' Annet Mahendru describing what the mysterious new series will be about. Together, the cast teases:
"What if you grew up in a world of safety and you decided to leave? To discover the truth of who you are and what the world really is. You know, growing up. There have been things going on in The Walking Dead universe since the very start of the story, all happening over all these years — in other places we haven't seen, with people we haven't seen, with the dead we haven't seen. But we'll see it all this spring."
Leaving the nest might be a normal phase of adolescence and all, but perhaps those living in the zombie apocalypse should consider finding a different way to deal with their angst — just a thought.
In other news, the teaser also features some concept art of all those new places and (decaying) faces. In one glimpse, a character appears to come across the zombie-filled wreckage of a plane crash; in another, the undead have been twisted together by a series of ropes, and mother nature is slowly creeping over them with vibrant flora to make this graveyard pretty again.
Perhaps the most interesting shot is of four characters, who are facing away but clearly wielding some gnarly weaponry (including a massive wrench!). They're giving off some Guardians of the Galaxy-style squad vibes here, no? Of course, that doesn't mean all four of these characters will be good — co-creator Scott Gimple previously teased that as the show's new characters wander away from their cozy homestead, some of them might become villains.
The Walking Dead's new spin-off series will arrive on AMC in the spring of 2020.
