Even the zombie apocalypse is making way for the coronavirus, as AMC has delayed the premiere of The Walking Dead: World Beyond. Deadline reports that the limited series, a spinoff of the main Walking Dead franchise, will not release on April 12th as planned and instead will arrive later this year.

The delay in the premiere is due to the post-production process, according to the outlet. Filming had wrapped on the series, but the final few episodes were still in post-production and the closure of companies due to the coronavirus forced the delay. AMC has shut down production on The Walking Dead and Fear the Walking Dead during the pandemic, following suit with just about every other show and film.

The spin-off series stars Alexa Mansour, Nicolas Cantu, Hal Cumpston, Julia Ormond, Aliyah Royale and Annet Mahendru and is described as follows:

Some will become heroes. Some will become villains. In the end, all of them will be changed forever. Grown-up and cemented in their identities, good & bad.

Two sisters along with two friends leave a place of safety and comfort to brave dangers, known and unknown, living and undead on an important quest. Pursued by those who wish to protect them and those who wish to harm them, a tale of growing up and transformation unfurls across dangerous terrain, challenging everything they know about the world, themselves and each other.
