TWD Dead City Plot
In TWD Dead City, fans will see Lauren Cohan‘s character Maggie and Jeffrey Dean Morgan‘s character Negan battle the undead in Manhattan. The official synopsis for the series reads:
“Isle of the Dead envisions the popular Maggie and Negan characters travelling 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.”
Although AMC has changed the series’ name, it’s unlikely they’ve made many other substantial changes. As such, we can expect that the showrunner and creator of the series, Eli Jorné, will stay the same. Previously, he worked as a co-executive producer and writer for the mainline show. Cohan and Morgan will join Jorné as producers and Scott M. Gimple. Gimple is the Chief Content Officer for the Walking Dead universe. Currently, we know that AMC plans to release the first episode sometime in 2023.
When speaking about their time in the mainline show, Gimple had this to say about Cohan and Morgan:
“They kill the last eight episodes of The Walking Dead. Maggie and Negan’s story in the last eight episodes of The Walking Dead is incredible. And it set the bar for us to try to top it with .”

Gimple also gave some more details about TWD Dead City. He said:
“It’s a madhouse, and enter it and get swept up into the madhouse. There’s a lot of conflict. There’s a lot of action. There are zip lines, the walkers are insane. The rats in that city are insane. Eli Jorné is the showrunner, and they’re doing incredible work over there right now.”
Additionally, the president of AMC Studios, Dan McDermott, said that TWD Dead City:
“not only adds another compelling series to this collection, it extends our storytelling around two unforgettable characters fans have grown to love, hate or hate and then love in Maggie and Negan, brilliantly inhabited by Lauren and Jeffrey. It also lets us explore a corner of this universe located on the island of Manhattan, with an iconic skyline that takes on a very different meaning when viewed through the lens of a zombie apocalypse.”
Clearly, fans are in for a pretty crazy time with the show! Other actors appearing in the show are Gaius Charles, Željko Ivanek, and Mahina Napolean. It looks like the show will have quite a star-studded cast.
You can catch the first episode sometime in 2023, exclusively on AMC.
