During the [email protected] panel for Walking Dead: World Beyond, the Season 2 release date was revealed. Chief content officer Scott M. Gimple announced Walking Dead: World Beyond Season 2 will premiere on October 3 on AMC.
The new episodes of World Beyond will be sandwiched between The Walking Dead and Talking Dead. Additionally, episodes will be available early on AMC+. And in addition to the release date, the very first clip from Season 2 of World Beyond was revealed, which you can check out below.
“So much about this show is about seeing different corners of the world and the different people that inhabit it,” Gimple said during the panel. “This season, we’re going to see at least three, very distinct worlds that have all sorts of different characters, and they have their own issues with one another, and they also have their own place in the world. We sort of explain certain things that are going on that people might not have been aware of. It’s more discovery, really, of characters and worlds.”
Gimple went on to specify that the different characters and worlds don’t involve Rick Grimes–although we did recently get an update on the Walking Dead movies, which will revolve around him. The new group seen in the clip above is a different group than we’ve seen before, and they have a different relationship with the CRM than we’ve seen in prior episodes.
There are some new series regulars for Season 2 of World Beyond. This includes Jelani Alladin (FBI), Joe Holt (Scandal), Ted Sutherland (Fear Street Part 2 and 3), and Natalie Gold (Succession).
Season 2 will be the final season of World Beyond, but there’s still more Walking Dead coming. Fear the Walking Dead has Season 7 coming soon–and there was a new clip of that released during Comic-Con–and Season 11 of The Walking Dead is coming as well, and that will be the show’s final season.
