It's a whole new world in "The Walking Dead" universe.

AMC released a teaser for the third entry in the zombie franchise, a spinoff that will focus on "the next generation."

The video features several young characters saying, “There have been things going on in 'The Walking Dead' universe since the very start of the story, all happening over all these years. In other places we haven’t seen. With people we haven’t seen. With the dead we haven’t seen. But we’ll see it all this spring.”



Alexa Mansour ("Unfriended: Dark Web"), Nicolas Cantu ("The Amazing World of Gumball"), and Hal Cumpston (Australian comedy "Bilched") have been cast as the leads of the 10-episode untitled drama.

The spinoff will center on two young female protagonists and "focus on the first generation to come-of-age in the apocalypse as we know it,” according to a network description.

“Some will become heroes. Some will become villains. In the end, all of them will be changed forever. Grown-up and cemented in their identities, both good and bad.”

Co-created by Scott M. Gimple, chief content officer of "The Walking Dead" universe, the spinoff will be run by Matt Negrete, who has been a writer and producer on flagship for the past five seasons.
