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.”
Everything coming to Amazon Prime Video in August 2019
“Summer may be coming to an end, but Prime Video is doing its best to keep the season of adventure going.
From gigantic journeys like Godzilla (2014) to smaller sagas like A Simple Favor, the streaming service is offering up a number of choice movies this August. Of course, they’re saving the most sought-after flicks for rent or purchase.
Throughout the month, Avengers: Endgame, The Souvenir, and Pokémon Detective Pikachu – two of which made our mid-year best of 2019 films list, and the third of which is freakin’ Pikachu in a hat – all become available through Prime Video. If you missed them in theaters or need to enjoy them just one more time, now’s your chance!”
The Walking Dead Movie Comic-Con Announcement

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