A new ‘Walking Dead’ series debuting with 10 episodes in 2020

Even more zombies.

“A new spin-off series based in The Walking Dead universe is coming to AMC in 2020.

Hot on the trail of the ninth season of The Walking Dead, AMC announced that a second spin-off will start production this summer and premiere sometime in 2020, IGN reported Monday. The new zombie show got a 10-episode order for its first season with Walking Dead writer Matt Negrete heading it up as a co-creator.

We don’t know a whole lot about the new Walking Dead show, but AMC did provide a short description that gives us a hint of what it will look like, saying the series will “feature two young female protagonists and focus on the first generation to come-of-age in the apocalypse as we know it. Some will become heroes. Some will become villains. In the end, all of them will be changed forever. Grown-up and cemented in their identities, both good and bad.”

While The Walking Dead kicked off right at the beginning of the apocalypse, it looks like this spin-off will start down the line from when zombies first started eating people in the U.S., long enough for its protagonists to have been teens or younger when it began.

Right now, it’s not clear who the protagonists are or if they’ll be connected to anyone in the main series or the other spin-off, Fear the Walking Dead. We do know that filming will be happening in Virginia, which is where the main series takes place now.

The Walking Dead has given us a glimpse at what youths in the zombie apocalypse look like throughout the series, although these kids and teens have never really been the focus.”

More than 30m people have watched Netflix’s Murder Mystery; why?

Published

The critics might have hated it, but this Jennifer Aniston and Adam Sandler-starring Agatha Christie pastiche broke the record for Netflix’s biggest opening weekend

Despite the critics (mostly) hating it, we now know that 30.9m Netflix account-holders watched Murder Mystery in its first three days of release. To put that in context: if two people watched the movie on each account, and you imagine them all paying the average $9 price of a cinema ticket, it would give the film an opening weekend of $556m, the third-largest ever. That is by no means a perfect formula, but nevertheless highlights a staggering performance for an Agatha Christie parody that stars Jennifer Aniston and Adam Sandler. How did that happen?

‘Claws’ is the juiciest summer drama you aren’t watching

Published

on

“Claws is one of three excellent shows returning in the next week, in which the leading women are on a quest to empower themselves. Unlike HBO’s award-winning Big Little Lies or FX’s acclaimed Pose, however, this one will air relatively inconspicuously.

It’s a shame, because TNT’s boisterous crime drama retains the kooky vibe it’s hoisted itself on for the past two years.

Everything about Claws is unapologetically loud, from the storylines to the costumes to the dialogue to, obviously, the on-brand nails. It doesn’t hold back from its unconventional premise: Five manicurists run a salon in the trashy city of Palmetto, Florida, that’s actually a front to launder money for the local drug lord………………….”
