Lauren Cohan and Jeffrey Dean Morgan will be picking up their weapons for a new series titled Isle of the Dead, which will consist of six episodes for the first season. It's set to premiere in 2023.

Scott Gimple, writer and producer, said of the acting duo:

"Lauren and Jeffrey have always been fantastic collaborators and now, we bring that collaboration to the next level with a series that will take these characters to their limits with the world — and each other."

"All of us are thrilled to take you on an all-new, all different TWD epic for the ages."

They will be traveling to Manhattan, which was cut off from the mainland. As usual, the city will be filled with friends, enemies, and the dead.

"I'm thrilled to partner with Dan McDermott and the team at AMC on the next chapter in The Walking Dead Universe," said Lauren Cohan.

"Maggie is very close to my heart and I'm excited to continue her journey against the iconic backdrop of New York City, alongside my friend and collaborator, Jeffrey Dean Morgan. Eli Jorné has created something incredibly special and I cannot wait for the fans to see what we have in store for Maggie and Negan."

Jeffrey Dean Morgan commented:

"I'm delighted that Negan and Maggie's journey continues. It's been such a ride walking in Negan's shoes, I'm beyond excited to continue his journey in New York City with Lauren."

"Walkers in an urban setting has always been such a cool image, but 5th Avenue, Empire State Building, Statue of Liberty? The greatest city in the world??"

"The backdrop is amazing, but it's the story that Eli Jorné cooked up that is even better. Buckle up folks, Isle of the Dead is going to reinvent the TWD Universe. Huge thank you to Dan McDermott, Scott Gimple and AMC for having us back for more… we simply can't wait."

One thing is for sure: I can't wait!
