Even without an official name for the series, going only by the name 'Cobalt' during production, the companion series to The Walking Dead has already been given a two season order. The series, which will star Kim Dickens, Cliff Curtis, Frank Dillane, and Alycia Debnam Carey, will be set in Los Angeles and focus on these new characters and storylines. The first season will consist of six episodes and premiere on AMC this summer. The second season will air in 2016.
Robert Kirkman, Gale Anne Hurd, Greg Nicotero and David Alpert from The Walking Dead will all serve as executive producers. Dave Erickson, who co-created and co-wrote the pilot with Kirkman, is an executive producer and showrunner.
