Walking Dead fans, this should make you happy!

Then again, it may not.  The creators of AMCs The Walking Dead have announced that they are developing a "companion series" ... otherwise known as a spin-off ... for Walking Dead.

AMC President Charlie Collier said;

Building on the success of the most popular show on television for adults 18-49 is literally a no-brainer,” “We look forward to working with Robert, Gale and Dave again as we develop an entirely new story and cast of characters. It’s a big world and we can’t wait to give fans another unforgettable view of the zombie apocalypse.”

Creator Robert Kirkman said he's looking forward to being able to write outside the confines of the original Walking Dead comic books.

What do you guys think? Is this a good idea or should they just leave well enough alone?
