The New Episodic Anthology Series “Tales of the Living Dead” will be the first Sunday, August 14 at 9 p.m. ET / 8 a.m. on AMC and AMC+, with the first two episodes airing the same night on AMC+. The following episodes will air a week earlier, starting Sunday August 21.
“Tales of the Walking Dead” will allow for standalone storytelling, which should give the series a very different vibe to the established “Walking Dead” formula that carried over from the main series to the other spinoffs we’ve seen so far. .

“Each hour-long episode is set in the world of ‘The Walking Dead’ and will feature new and existing characters.”
Channing Powell (“The Walking Dead”) will serve as the spin-off’s showrunner.
“This series, more than any other in the Walking Dead Universe, works on new voices, perspectives and ideas – bringing stories to life like we’ve never told before,” said franchise architect Scott Gimple. “I’m thrilled to be Channing’s consigliere, helping in any way I can to bring these new visions to life for the best fans in television. I started out as a fan of ‘The Walking Dead‘ and ended up as showrunner of what will hopefully be one of its most unique spin-offs. I’m so grateful to AMC and Scott for supporting me and my writers as we pushed and pulled and pushed the boundaries of this universe to bring you something new and unexpected, while we hopefully continue- the, to what the main audience loved so much about the flagship. To display.”
