AMC revealed a new trailer during 'The Walking Dead' Season 11' that previewed the upcoming shows from the franchise. With eight episodes left in the original flagship show, the way forward for the cabler is by spawning a string of spinoffs slated to premiere on the network and the streamer AMC+. The upcoming list of shows includes — 'Dead City', an untitled series on Norman Reedus' Daryl Dixon, and the Rick and Michonne series reuniting Rick Grimes (Andrew Lincoln) and Michonne (Danai Gurira).

The preview also teased the new 'Fear the Walking Dead' that returns with Season 8 next year. Coming back to the new shows, 'Dead City', previously called 'Isle of the Dead' sees Maggie and Negan traveling to Manhattan post the apocalypse that's cut off from the mainland. The city will have its own threats from the Walkers and other parties who have made the city their own. Reedus's Daryl gets his own show where he wakes up on a European continent and tries to put together what happened.

Did AMC's latest preview of the new spinoffs spoil the ending of 'The Walking Dead' Season 11?

In a way, it did. With the show's main characters getting their spinoffs, there's every reason to believe that these heroes will make it to the other side. While Negan and Maggie surviving caused quite the furor when 'Dead City' was announced, Daryl's fate is explained as well with his own show coming up. While Michonne was last seen in Season 10, Gurira's character is all set for a comeback.

Here's what Comicbook had to say about the new Rick and Michonne series, "Taking place in a location never before seen in TWDU, "This series presents an epic love story of two characters changed by a changing world. Kept apart by distance. By an unstoppable power. By the ghosts of who they were. Rick and Michonne are thrown into another world, built on a war against the dead... And ultimately, a war against the living. Can they find each other and who they were in a place and situation unlike any they've ever known before? Are they enemies? Lovers? Victims? Victors? Without each other, are they even alive — or will they find that they, too, are the Walking Dead?"

During the network's summit, AMC Networks chief Dan McDermott told EW about what to expect. He said the world of the dead will "satisfy the core audience and bring in new audiences" and also focus on keeping the long-running franchise from feeling "overly familiar" to viewers.

For those who are keen to watch the final few episodes of 'The Walking Dead', the official synopsis reads, "In the upcoming final episodes of The Walking Dead, threats lurk around every corner, dead and alive, as each group continues to get caught in uncontrollable situations. The looming pressure is cresting towards a day of reckoning for all. Will the sum of their individual journeys cumulate into one, or divide them forever."
