However, just because the main show is ending, that doesn't mean fans won't get to see their favourite characters again - far from it, as the series has spawned a wide range of spin-offs, with a number set to arrive next year.

One of these is subtitled Dead City, and will focus on two compelling characters, Maggie and Negan, as they explore an apocalyptic Manhattan. But when can fans expect to see the series, what's the plot and who else is set to star in it?

What is The Walking Dead: Dead City about?

Little is currently known about the plot of The Walking Dead: Dead City, but we do know it sees the once villainous Negan and Maggie as they navigate the decimated streets of Manhattan. It has long been cut off from the mainland, and the crumbling city is filled with the dead, who have made New York City "their own world full of anarchy, danger, beauty, and terror".

We're sure there will still be some tension between the central two, after Negan killed killed Maggie's husband Glenn back in season 7 of the main show.

The series was first announced back in March under the title The Walking Dead: Isle of the Dead, before the name was updated in August.
