‘The Walking Dead: Dead City’s Villain is the Biggest Threat Yet
Jeffrey Dean Morgan, who stars in the new series, previously shared with FilmSweep, “I appreciate the serene, intimate moments they share, where they come close to finding common ground, but something always prevents it. Being a spectator to these scenes is intriguing.” Discussing his experience of observing the audience’s reaction to the premiere, he added, “Experiencing it [at the premiere] with an audience was vastly different than watching it in isolation. The moments you’re unsure will land, do indeed resonate, and it’s apparent the audience acknowledges them.”
The six-part series also features Lauren Cohan, Gaius Charles, and Željko Ivanek. The creators and writers are Eli Jorne, with direction by Kevin Dowling, Gandja Monteiro, and Loren Yaconelli. New episodes of ‘The Walking Dead: Dead City’ will debut on AMC+ on Thursdays and premiere on AMC at 9 p.m. Sundays.
