Teaser trailer for The Walking Dead: Dead City

A new teaser trailer for The Walking Dead: Dead City reveals scenes of Maggie and Negan in New York City after the events of the main show's finale.

A new teaser trailer has been released for Maggie and Negan's upcoming The Walking Dead spinoff, titled The Walking Dead: Dead City. The new series will follow Maggie and Negan as they explore a post-apocalyptic New York City following the events of The Walking Dead series finale. While details about the series remain sparse, Dead City is set to introduce original characters to the zombie franchise, including Pearlie Armstrong (Gaius Charles, Grey's Anatomy), Amaia (Karina Ortiz, Orange Is the New Black), and "The Croat" (Zeljko Ivanek, Madam Secretary). The series also promises to continue exploring Maggie and Negan's tense relationship because of Negan's past sins.

The Walking Dead YouTube channel recently released a teaser trailer for The Walking Dead: Dead City spinoff, showcasing 20 seconds of the upcoming series. While viewers can catch a glimpse of characters like Pearlie, the Croat, and someone wielding a set of antlers as a weapon, the plot of the series remains wrapped in mystery.



While the trailer doesn't reveal anything specific about the plot of Dead City, the images it presents coupled with what little has been revealed about the series give a few hints as to what audiences can expect. The Dead City trailer indicates that Maggie (Lauren Cohan, photo) and Negan will come across a group of survivors in the Big Apple who are using the apocalypse as a form of entertainment. A sign reading "Dawn Lincoln Center come kill with us" can be seen in one of the shots, as well as a scene of a man in a wrestling ring fighting a Walker. With Dead City set a few years after The Walking Dead, it's possible the show will use New York to portray a world that has become so used to the undead, they now use them as a form of high-octane, dangerous fun.

The trailer also gives viewers a closer look at the dangers Maggie and Negan will have to face in the city, especially in the form of creepy-looking Walkers. Zombies shown in the trailer seem to behave in much the same way as any other, but one whose head appears to be sticking out of a fleshy barrier may be a dangerous variant. The trailer also shows a mysterious man in a biker-style helmet that Maggie and Negan are about to ambush, with a later shot revealing the figure to be the Croat. If the Croat turns out to be the show's human villain, then it could explain why Jeffrey Dean Morgan teased the return of old Negan in Dead City, embracing his past to deal with the Croat because of the threat he poses to both himself and Maggie.



The Walking Dead: Dead City teaser trailer shows viewers what Maggie and Negan (Jeffrey Dean Morgan, photo) will be dealing with in New York City, but there aren't any indications as to how or why the pair end up in the Big Apple. However, the series finale of The Walking Dead underscores how Maggie is unable to forgive Negan after what he did to Glenn, even though she acknowledges that he's earned his place among the core survivors. Negan then walks off, with no confirmation if he stayed in Alexandria with Annie or if he wandered off alone after his final conversation with Maggie. With Maggie teasing Dead City as her attempt to discover more of the world, it's possible her personal mission is what brings her and Negan together by chance. Perhaps The Walking Dead's upcoming spinoff can rectify the tension between the two while telling a compelling story.
