The Walking Dead Spin-Off (working title Cobalt) will be set somewhere in the Los Angeles area. It’s not said exactly where yet or how large that scope will be though…
Here is the cast talking about what’s to come in the second half of season 5.
Cliff Curtis has been cast as the male lead in the pilot for The Walking Dead companion series. The untitled Walking Dead spinoff, code name Cobalt, takes place during the same zombie apocalypse depicted on The Walking Dead but in a different location. It revolves around a divorced teacher (Curtis), a good man who tries to do right by everyone in his life, and a female guidance counselor. Curtis, managed by Joe Rice, joins Frank Dillane and Alycia Debnam Carey who were recently cast as the woman’s children.
Here are my thoughts on the mid-season finale.
Did you catch the after credits scene from episode 8?
The forthcoming Walking Dead companion series (it’s not a spin-off) has announced it’s first two leads: British actor Frank Dillane (he played Tom Riddle in Harry Potter and the Half Blood Prince) and Alicia Debnam Carey (Into the Storm).
The companion series pilot is being directed by Adam Davidson, and Dave Erickson (who is also developing the series with Robert and serving as Exec Producer) has been tapped as showrunner.
The companion series (why can’t it get a titel?) will start shooting in the near future!
