"The Walking Dead" comics creator Robert Kirkman and executive producers of the hit show will work on a companion series. New storylines and characters will be introduced to the zombocalypse world viewers have given big ratings to, AMC announced Monday.
"Building on the success of the most popular show on television for adults 18–49 is literally a no-brainer,” said Charlie Collier, AMC’s president and general manager.
The announcement comes fresh on the heels of AMC announcing a Breaking Bad prequel, Better Call Saul.
Unsurprisingly, some poked fun at the new show on Twitter.
The show has a target air date of 2015. Season four of The Walking Dead returns to AMC on Oct. 13.
