AMC is working on a third entry to the universe of The Walking Dead.

The new series which is expected to debut in 2020 and will be centred on two young female protagonists.

Sarah Barnett, the president of the company’s entertainment networks released the following statement:

“We believe in the underlying vitality of the ‘Walking Dead” universe. ’Walking Dead’ itself continues to be the number-one show by some margin,” she adds. “This show just continues to be an incredible boon for us. It’s something another cable or streaming network would actually kill for.”

While the ratings for The Walking Dead have been declining over the seasons it still remains one of the most popular shows on TV attracting huge ad revenue for its network.
