Since AMC’s The Walking Dead is currently the highest rated drama series on all of television in the coveted 18-49 demo, it was only a matter of time before AMC expanded the brand. The network announced plans for a Walking Dead spin-off last year, and officially ordered a pilot for the potential series earlier this month. With the wheels in motion to finally move forward on this new corner of the Walking Dead universe, character descriptions for the pilot episode have landed online that give us a few hints as to what we may expect from the Walking Dead companion series. We previously heard that the new show might be a prequel of sorts, focusing on the early efforts to combat the zombie infection in its infancy, and these character descriptions appear to corroborate that information.
Hit the jump to read the Walking Dead spin-off character descriptions, which seem to have a heavy focus on family.
