Tales of the Walking Dead is coming soon.

The Walking Dead has another spin-off coming to screens.

First put into development in 2020, AMC in the US has now officially given the green light to the anthology series Tales of the Walking Dead from franchise boss Scott Gimple and veteran writer Channing Powell.

The Wrap reports that Tales of the Walking Dead will feature both brand new characters as well as familiar faces from The Walking Dead, Fear and World Beyond when it premieres six episodes next summer.

The Walking Dead boss Scott M. Gimple announced: "This series, more than any other in the Walking Dead Universe, runs on new voices, perspectives, and ideas — bringing to life stories unlike any we’ve told before.

"I started as a fan of The Walking Dead and have ended up as a showrunner of what will hopefully be one of its most unique spin-offs," Powell went on to say.

"That's nuts and I'm so grateful to AMC and Scott for supporting me and my writers while we pushed, pulled and poked at the boundaries of this universe to bring you something new and unexpected, while hopefully still tending to what core audiences loved so much about the flagship show."

The very concept of Tales of the Walking Dead allows for it to go anywhere and for its stories to take place at any time, thus giving fans the potential for never-before-seen corners of the universe.

The Walking Dead's Jeffrey Dean Morgan has recently said he's "certainly not opposed" to doing a spin-off or prequel for Negan once the main show finishes too.
