Creator Robert Kirkman revealed more details about “The Walking Dead” companion series today at SXSW in Austin, Texas. Last week, AMC announced that the yet-to-be-named spin-off has received a two-season order. The show’s first season will consist of six one-hour episodes and premiere on AMC in late summer. The show’s second season will air in 2016.
EW has the quotes from Kirkman from the Austin festival in which he talks more about the show’s timeline.
