The sky may not even be the limit when it comes to The Walking Dead spin-off AMC is planning for 2015. (Zombies in space!) All producers have done so far is tell us what it won’t be like, so we’re left to dream up scenarios for this brand new zombie world.
Zap2it talked to some Walking Dead cast members to get their ideas on what the spin-off should cover. The consensus seems to be to get away from Georgia in the summer, which is already covered by the original show and the webisodes.
"I would want it to take place in New York,” Sonequa Martin-Green (Sasha) said, adding there’s “so much juice there."
Emily Kinney (Beth) said she'd like the spin-off to show how people are dealing with walkers in a completely different environment. "Like, totally cold environment or like snow and Arctic,” she said. “Or like in a different country, how are they dealing? I think that would be cool, just something totally opposite. How far has this reached? Is it just starting?" Good ideas, Em!
She'd also be happy to go back and see more of the start of the zombie apocalypse. What's the origin?
Andrew Lincoln (Rick) on the other hand, is stuck in the Farmer Rick head-zone he’ll occupy at the start of Season 4, which premieres this Sunday, October 13. When asked what he’d like the spin-off to be about, he answered, "Hamsters." Zombie hamsters? "Yeah."
Well … why not? Maybe make a kids’ show version of the apocalypse following zombie hamsters and other wildlife. They could have Norman Reedus’s Daryl Dixon crossover as The Big Bad the animals try to avoid since he’s so good with that crossbow.
Do you like the stars’ ideas? What are your hopes for the spin-off?
