A new ten-episode spinoff of The Walking Dead from AMC Studios has been licensed to Amazon Prime for AsiaPac, the Middle East, Africa and Europe.

The series is set to premiere on AMC in the U.S. in 2020. AMC Networks International will air the show on its AMC channel in Latin America, Spain and Portugal. Featuring two young female protagonists, it will focus on the first generation to come of age in the apocalypse.

The Walking Dead represents some of the most compelling and coveted IP in the world, so we are extremely thrilled to have lined up international distribution of the third television series in the expanding universe of The Walking Dead with Amazon Prime Video and AMC Networks International,” said Valerie Cabrera, senior VP of worldwide content distribution for AMC Studios. “A franchise and story that is rooted in our collective humanity, the appeal of The Walking Dead crosses language and cultural barriers and we can’t wait to share this highly-anticipated series with fans around the globe next year.”
