Deadline reports that the untitled Walking Dead companion series has been given a two-season order from AMC.

The first season is said to be a total of six episodes, much like the first season of The Walking Dead, and will air in late summer, leading into the sixth season of The Walking Dead.

The companion series takes place in LA, which gives us another look at the global zombie epidemic and focuses on new characters. The series will star Cliff Curtis, Kim Dickens, Frank Dillane and Alycia Debnam Carey as Robert Kirkman, Gale Anne Hurd, Greg Nicotero and David Alpert will serve as executive producers.
