Watch The Walking Dead: Dead City preview
Thirteen years after The Walking Dead exploded onto our screens, exposing us all sorts of undead entertainment, we're getting a fourth spin-off in the form of Dead City.
This time round, we're following the odd couple of Maggie (Lauren Cohan) and Negan (Jeffrey Dean Morgan) as they head to the isolated island of Manhattan to search for Maggie's son, Hershel.
We can't imagine it'll be smooth sailing. Maggie, quite understandably, certainly hasn't forgiven Negan for killing her husband Glenn in the main series. However, both characters will need to grin and bear it to stay alive.
Expect swathes of zombies like you've never seen before, all set to a backdrop of the Statue of Liberty, the Empire State Building, and many other abandoned icons of New York and New Jersey. Fresh faces will also be turning up, but we're yet to see if they'll be friend of foe.
Dead City is just one of three upcoming The Walking Dead spin-offs planned for release in 2023 and 2024, so it's clear the harrowing zombie slaying won't be letting up any time soon.
Airing weekly on AMC, it's super simple to watch The Walking Dead: Dead City. Just follow our guide below on how to watch Dead City in the US and around the world. Plus, we've included a quick guide on how to use a VPN to watch your usual coverage if you're outside your home country.
How to watch The Walking Dead: Dead City in the US without cable
The Walking Dead fans can watch Dead City first on AMC+. Episodes air three days ahead (Thursdays) of the AMC network broadcasts, so it's a great to way to avoid spoilers and get your undead fix quick.

The Walking Dead: Dead City is also airing on AMC in the U.S. on Sunday nights, which means most people with cable TV should be able to get access already.
However, if you've cut the cord, you'll need an Over The Top (OTT) streaming provider to get access.
Our pick of the bunch is Sling TV. The base packages include tons of networks including Disney, ESPN, Cartoon Network, Comedy Central and more, including, AMC.
You can also add AMC+ to Sling if you like too with the AMC+ package, which will set you back $7.99 a month. That's on top of either Sling Blue, Sling Orange or Sling Blue + Orange which start at $40. You can try your first month for $15 and you can cancel any time if you decide you don't want it.
Finally, if all you want to watch is The Walking Dead: Dead City, the AMC Plus channel is available as an add-on for Amazon Prime, Apple TV, Roku, and more.
