The Walking Dead: Dead City is not coming to AMC in Spring 2023

The Walking Dead: Dead City will not be arriving when fans initially thought after all. 

The exciting new era for the TWD Universe has been a little delayed. After the conclusion of The Walking Dead in November of last year, AMC plans to launch multiple new spinoff shows to continue the story in some unexpected ways, particularly by focusing on a couple of the main show’s core characters.

Those new spinoffs (along with veteran offshoot Fear The Walking Dead) were all planned for airing during 2023, with vague release windows in mind for The Walking Dead: Dead City and Fear season 8. However, a recent announcement from AMC has revealed that neither one will be coming as soon as we thought.

Dead City was originally set to debut in April, but the cable service has delayed it until summer instead. It was initially expected to be the first TWD Universe series of the year, but that is no longer the case either. Here’s when we can expect it.

The Walking Dead: Dead City release date updates

The Walking Dead: Dead City will premiere on both AMC and AMC+ in June 2023. The cable service announced the date change, along with the fact that its debut will be preceded by Fear The Walking Dead season 8 (which will air its first six episodes ahead of Dead City‘s debut).

A more specific release window will likely be announced in the coming weeks, but given the TWD Universe’s penchant for the channel’s Sunday night timeslot at 9:00 p.m., it’s highly likely that the Maggie and Negan-led spinoff will bow there as well.

So, while we wait for more announcements and confirmations from AMC, we can once again narrow down Dead City‘s release date to one of four Sundays. As Fear‘s final season will run from May 14 into June, the most likely possibility would be June 25, as that would be the week after the veteran spinoff concludes the first part of its season. Now, that’s just a prediction and it’s best to wait for AMC’s official date announcement before getting too excited.

We will say this, though: We can’t wait to catch up with Maggie and Negan in The Walking Dead: Dead City this summer.
