AMC has impressed fans of The Walking Dead with its new series, despite concerns that they wouldn't live up to the hype after the flagship series ended. Both The Walking Dead: Dead City and the Daryl Dixon series have broken viewership records on AMC+. The Walking Dead universe already has several spinoffs, and AMC has announced more to come.
One of the main concerns for fans was how the series would handle the inclusion of long-time enemies Maggie and Negan. However, the series managed to incorporate their storyline effectively. In the first season, Maggie's son Hershel is kidnapped by a former member of Negan's Saviors, The Croat. The key to Hershel's rescue is for Maggie to betray Negan and exchange him for her son.
The series has been renewed for a second season, but what will it be about? The season finale set up several storylines that will be the focus of the upcoming season. Maggie has been able to save her son, but their relationship is strained when he confronts her about her obsession with Negan. Meanwhile, it is revealed that The Dama is the one in charge, not The Croat. She is intrigued by Negan's leadership skills and wants him to help her take over and run Manhattan.
Another storyline to follow is Ginny's return to The Bricks, Maggie's new home. However, it is unlikely she will remain there, as she has a complicated relationship with Negan. Perlie Armstrong, who was tasked with apprehending Negan, lies and says he is dead. The leader of New Babylon is interested in the information Perlie discovered about The Croat's methane production in Manhattan. What will she do when she finds out Negan is alive?
While there has been no official announcement regarding filming for the second season of The Walking Dead: Dead City, the storyline has been set up to be exciting. Fans can expect more intense drama and character development as the series continues.
