When the credits rolled at the end of season 11 of AMC's The Walking Dead we were left in no doubt that, while the run was officially over, there were plenty more stories yet to come. And that the best televisions around would feature the continuing adventures of some of the biggest characters.

Not wishing to spoil it too much if you've yet to see episode 24 of that "final" season, we're getting several sequel spinoffs featuring some true fan favourites - and the first is The Walking Dead: Dead City.

It reunites Negan (Jeffrey Dead Morgan) and his previously sworn enemy Maggie (Lauren Cohan) in a six-part mini-series that picks up their journey after the events of the main show.

The entire series has already aired in the US, but what about the UK? Can we expect to see it soon? Here's what we know about The Walking Dead: Dead City, the trailer, and possible UK plans.

What is The Walking Dead: Dead City?

There have been a few Walking Dead spinoff shows over the years, with the ongoing Fear the Walking Dead being the most famous. However, The Walking Dead: Dead City is the first sequel to the main show to appear on screens. There are at least two others on their way too, including The Walking Dead: Daryl Dixon.

Back to Dead City though, it continues the story of Negan and Maggie - two former rivals (after all, killing one's husband is bound to cause some animosity) who join forces to rescue Maggie's son, Hershel. It is set amongst the crumbling cityscapes in Manhatten and, as the title suggests, features plenty of peril from zombies and bandits alike.

It's a six-part series and features a completely new plot. The Walking Dead itself was loosely based on the comic books by Robert Kirkman, Tony Moore, and Charlie Adlard.

When did The Walking Dead: Dead City start?

The Walking Dead: Dead City has already aired in the US - starting on AMC+ on 15 June 2023, and then on the main AMC channel on 18 June.

There are currently no dates for a UK or European airing.

When will the The Walking Dead: Dead City be available in the UK and where?

Although we still don't have any confirmed UK details on The Walking Dead: Dead City, you can at least watch the premiere episode.

AMC put the first part of the six-episode series on the official The Walking Dead YouTube channel. You can watch it for free below.

As for the rest of the series, we still don't yet know when The Walking Dead: Dead City will be on UK TVs, or from whom. However, considering Disney+ signed the entirety of The Walking Dead, including exclusive UK rights to the final season, it's surely in the picture for the spinoff.

We just don't expect an announcement anytime soon. A Disney+ spokesperson previously told inews that it doesn't "have any information to share on this title".

One way that fans in the UK can watch the entire first season is to buy the Blu-ray, as it's been released in box set form in the US and is available to import on sites like Amazon.

Catch the entire first season of Dead City on Blu-ray. The box set is apparently not region locked, so is said to work in UK Blu-ray decks and games consoles.

The Walking Dead: Dead City trailer

While we await more details on where to stream The Walking Dead: Dead City outside the States, here's a tasty trailer to whet your appetite even more.

What are the other The Walking Dead spin-off shows yet to come?

There are at least two other six-part sequels featuring other characters who survived The Walking Dead.

One is The Walking Dead: Daryl Dixon, starring Norman Reedus as the lone wolf character that made him famous, which has now started to air in the States.

The other is The Walking Dead: Rick & Michonne.

Will there be a The Walking Dead: Dead City season 2?

Even though Dead City was originally intended to be a one-off mini-series, there's a strong indication that we'll actually get a second season.

Speaking during the San Diego Comic Con in July 2023, the president of AMC, Dan McDermott, said, "We can't wait to bring Dead City fans back to the epicenter of Manhattan for more zip-lining action with Maggie and Negan."
