New AMC Zombie Series, Disney+ News and More

As if we don't have enough zombie shows, AMC is going for the saturation of TV with zombies, as they've ordered a third Walking Dead series.

This series will focus on two young women and the first generation to come-of-age in the zombie apocalypse. There will be heroes, villains, and what not.

Of course they tease potential cross-overs with the other series, but as we've seen, it will probably be teased forever before it actually happens.


Hawkeye Series in Development

I've said it before and I'm sure you know this already, but Disney is working on a limited series based on the Hawkeye character, with Jeremy Renner attached. They're also looking to pass the Hawkeye torch on to the character who took it over in the comics, Kate Bishop. She's also part of the Young Avengers initiative.  Which makes sense, as they set up new and younger characters for potentially new Marvel movies down the road.

Hawkeye will be on their streaming service, Disney+.


Speaking of...

Disney+ is slated to premiere in the U.S. on November 12, 2019 and will cost $6.99 per month or optionally, for $69.99 per year.

Right now they're saying it will be an ad-free service, supported by subscription income. Of course, every single service I've ever seen say that is now ad-supplemented.

Disney+ will be on many platforms... the web (at, game consoles, smart TVs and connected streaming devices, including Roku and PlayStation 4.

Disney+ will be the exclusive SVOD home for new releases from Walt Disney Studios, Pixar, Lucasfilm and Marvel plus a lineup of original series and films. They'll also have all the Star Wars films, 250 hours of Nat Geo content and a slew of Disney Channel shows.
