Isle of The Dead

Isle of The Dead, the new series that is launching from the TWD world, will star Negan (Jeffrey Dean Morgan) and Maggie (Lauren Cohan). The story picks up after the final eight episodes of The Walking Dead, which are scheduled to air beginning in October.

Isle of the Dead envisions the popular Maggie and Negan characters traveling into a post-apocalyptic Manhattan long ago cut off from the mainland. The crumbling city is filled with the dead and denizens who have made New York City their own world full of anarchy, danger, beauty, and terror.” AMC has revealed.

JDM and Lauren Cohan won’t be the only leads in the new series. They are being joined by newcomer Gaius Charles from Grey’s Anatomy, who will also be considered a lead.

The series begins production in Manhattan this summer and is being led by AMC’s Chief Content Offer for The Walking Dead Universe, Scott Gimple, with Eli Jorné who will serve as showrunner and series creator.

Alycia Debnam-Carey’s Walking Dead Future

Debnam-Carey confirmed her exit from Fear The Walking Dead in a statement that she shared on social media after the series’ episode “Anna,” which aired at the end of May. The episode concluded with her leaving on a solo mission to help survivors trapped in a radioactive fallout in Texas.

Her tweet read: 

To my dearest @feartwd family, tonight marks the end of an extraordinary and life changing journey of playing Alicia Clark.

Where to begin…
I will never be able to fully express the kind of journey I have had working on @feartwd for so long. It has gifted me so much.

It has been the most extraordinary training ground as an actor where I’ve been given the chance to grow and learn. I’ve had the honour of working with so many inspiring and talented people. It provided new opportunities, such as directing and it has bonded me to such incredible fans that have supported me along the way.

It has been exciting, challenging, fun, hard and inspiring.

I was 21 when we began this crazy journey but now at 28, after 7 years and 100 episodes, I decided it was time for me to move on as an actor and as a person. As is the nature of our jobs I needed to seek out new challenges, new opportunities and carve out a new chapter for myself. I have been so lucky to be a part of something so awesome for so long but I hope you can understand and respect my choice to further expand and grow. I wouldn’t be here without you all and I am so grateful.

I had a lot of conversations over the years with our showrunners @goldbergian and @andrewchambliss and I think we found a fitting way to conclude Alicia’s story. It is beautiful, hopeful and elusive.

To the crews and casts from Los Angeles to Vancouver, Mexico to Texas, I am thankful for everything you’ve taught me. I love you all so much and I am so lucky to have had you all by my side. To the cast going forward, I’m so excited for what you will create next! And to my ride or dies who have been there with me every step of the way (you know who you are) I will be forever grateful to you.

It is bittersweet, but it is time.

Thank you for everything.

My love to you all. 

Will we see Alycia Debnam-Carey again in a Walking Dead Spinoff?

Nothing is known for sure (or nothing has been made public at least), but we wouldn’t be surprised at all if the Twitter exchange between Jeffrey Dean Morgan and her has something more to it!

The Walking Dead Spinoffs

If you were worried about not having enough TWD in your life after this fall. Never fear. There is quite a bit more Walking Dead coming your way.

It’s also been confirmed that Norman Reedus (best known as Daryl from TWD) will also have his own spin-off series. While that series was originally slated to involve Melissa McBride (Carol), that is no longer the case. The show will film in Europe and will premiere in 2023.

And launching this August will be a new anthology spin-off, Tales of The Walking Dead. This series will feature Terry Crews, Olivia Munn, and Samantha Morton (best known as Alpha from TWD).
