The Walking Dead: Dead City Plot: What Will be the Plot of the Spinoff Series?
The official synopsis of The Walking Dead: Dead City reads:
"The crumbling city is filled with the dead and denizens who have made New York City their own world of anarchy, danger, beauty, and terror."
Maggie and Negan will be going to a trip to the post-apocalyptic New York where they would encounter natives as they look for a notorious killer and try to escape the tail of a marshal with a connection to their past but as they pass through the walker-infested city, the dangers of the past and the present coincide.
Given the history between Maggie and Negan, it is no surprise if the two would clash but they would have to put their trust on each other in order to survive mutated walker-monsters plus a killer on their tails so they need to have each others' back.
New York City presents a threat like no other with societies unknown to them, living on rooftops, while evading walkers. It is expected to run through the skyscrapers of Manhattan and the threats that come with the darkness from within.
Where to Watch The Walking Dead: Dead City?
The Walking Dead: Dead City will be arriving on the same channel as that of the original series, on AMC. While there is no streaming platform for it yet, all the 11 episodes of The Walking Dead are currently on Netflix and it is highly likely that the show will be turning up there as well, but possibly, that would be after all the episodes air on TV.
Is There a Trailer for The Walking Dead: Dead City?
On November 2022, a 21-second teaser has been released for The Walking Dead: Dead City which shows snaps of Maggie and Negan scouring through the streets of the post-apocalyptic New York City, the rotten skyscrapers of Manhattan, and scarier and uglier faces of the undead.
It is a real nightmare come to life and while it is but a short clip, it is enough to hype up the fans that are waiting for the release of The Walking Dead: Dead City.
To date, there is still no official trailer released for The Walking Dead: Dead City but it is expected to have one as soon as the post-production of the series calls it a wrap.
