The truth, since this was announced in May until yesterday’s update, many are still unconvinced ANOTHER spinoff / sequel / whatever is related to the walkers of The Walking Dead.
But the truth is that the franchise of AMC has taken on a life of its own from the comics of Robert Kirkman, and if things continue to occur around this – apart from the imminent conclusion of the main series – it is simply because there are many people who continue to consume them!
And we may or may not agree with it, but today’s news about Tales of the Walking Dead They couldn’t be better for fans of the comics, where it all began. What nerds we read!
But there are reasons, and we are going to share them with you.
More than an anthology … take up the One-Shot concept!
A detail that few know is that Scott M. Gimple, who will be the executive producer and almighty of the project along with Channing Powell (showrunner here, but co-producer and writer on the base series and Fear) is not only a writer for television projects, but also for comics like The Simpsons!
The fact that Gimple know the narrative of the comic and have experience in TWD gives us hope that beyond the fanfare of the press release by AMC, scribes can easily apply the concept One-Shot from the comics, that is, from where the concept of anthology is truly born, with stories focused on one or a few characters. This formula has been key in franchises such as Batman, Spider-Man And till X-Men, where there are so many characters, that the possibilities and business potential grow in an extraordinary way!
That leads us to …

Think of all that the 11 base series seasons, plus Fear the Walking Dead and World Beyond (the movies of Rick Grimes and the spinoff with Carol Peletier and Daryl Dixon they do not count, being something apart)… dozens of endearing characters and much loved by the public!
How would it be to see great characters again with the return of great actors like Andrea (Laurie Holden), Glenn Rhee (Steven Yeun), Hershel (Scott Wilson), Tyresse Williams (Chad L. Coleman), Sasha Williams (Sonequa Marin-Green), Abraham Ford (Michael Cudlitz) and up to Morgan Jones (Lennie James), despite the fact that the latter has had constant appearances and many adventures?
On the other hand, there is the gallery of villains that could even show their origins: we have Negan (Jeffrey Dean Morgan), Merle Dixon (Michael Rooker), Shane Walsh (Jon Bernthal), Phillip Blake “The governor” (David morrissey), Alpha (Samantha Morton) and even the cannibal leader Gareth (Andrew J. West).
Sure, it’s true that actors like Scott Wilson They couldn’t go back (he passed away in 2018), but the chances of seeing familiar faces are great!
¡What possibilities for MANY seasons, MANY episodes, even after the current projects are concluded!
What do you think? On Japan the term is used yomikiri in the manga as equivalent to “One-Shot”, and literally means “a whole without continuation”. It is clear to us that the concept is a good one and that, like it or not, it still has the potential to unleash even MORE spinoffs, like the adventures of Shane or the first years of Negan. Who knows? The limit will be set by viewers with their preference or disapproval (ask The Simpsons).
If the current pandemic does not leave us as undead ourselves, Tales of the Walking Dead will arrive in mid 2022, just in time to wipe away our tears after the end of The Walking Dead, in its 11th season.
