The Walking Dead has been going strong for almost a decade, and we’ll soon be getting more of it. AMC just announced it’s developing a spin-off series, which is set to feature two female protagonists.

The network’s official release states this female-driven show centers on “the first generation to come-of-age in the apocalypse as we know it.”

The Walking Dead writer and producer Matt Negrete will be in charge of running this project. He’s beyond excited to be a part of this show, set in the same universe as the original series.

“Writing and producing for the original series has been the job of a lifetime and I’m honored to be working with Scott [M. Gimple] and all the fine Dead folks at AMC in this new capacity. I can’t wait for the fans of the franchise to see what we’ve been cooking up!” said Negrete in an official statement.

Filming should start this summer in Virginia, but we’ll have to wait until next year to find out what this show is all about.
