The upcoming anthology series will consist of six original, standalone stories that focus on either new or established characters within The Walking Dead universe.
Channing Powell, who has written for The Walking Dead and its first spin-off Fear the Walking Dead, will serve as showrunner on Tales of the Walking Dead, which is expected to release this summer on AMC and AMC+. Haifaa al-Mansour (Good Lord Bird), Deborah Kampmeier (Star Trek: Picard), and Tara Nicole Weyr (The Wilds) will each direct one episode with series producer Michael Satrazemis (The Walking Dead, Fear the Walking Dead) set to helm three episodes.
“Olivia, Danny, Loan, Embeth, and Jessie are the latest massive talents that will bring new worlds of TWD to life with big, daring, different, emotional, shocking, scary, and crazy stories. We’re excited for them to come walk with us,” said executive producer Scott Gimple in a statement on the casting.
