Set to begin filming in the Boston area in April 2024, The Walking Dead: Dead City follows the further adventures of favorites Maggie (played by Lauren Cohan) and Negan (played by Jeffrey Dean Morgan) as they navigate through post-apocalyptic Manhattan – a city overrun by the dead and survivors fighting to survive amidst chaos and danger.
