The world of The Walking Dead is about to get a whole lot scarier with the upcoming spinoff series Dead City.

Moving the franchise to the iconic city of New York, according to recent reports, the show promises to introduce new and terrifying zombies, which are bound to leave viewers feeling utterly nauseous.

One of the most compelling aspects of the new series is the return to a cityscape setting. According to showrunners Scott M. Gimple and Eli Jorne in a recent interview with Collider, making the city its own character was an exciting new challenge for them.

Jorne revealed that viewers can expect to see walkers throughout the show in ways they have never experienced before. From the city's verticality to how the characters interact with the walkers, Dead City promises to deliver a fresh perspective on the post-apocalyptic world.

But it's not just the setting that will be a game-changer for the franchise. The series is set two years after the finale of The Walking Dead, giving the show's creators a chance to showcase new and improved zombies. Which, according to Gimple, are even more disgusting and terrifying than before.

Gimple, the executive producer for TWD, teased that viewers will be introduced to a horrific walker that might just make you physically ill.

'It is one of the most awesome, disgusting, terrifying walkers that I've seen in the history of the show'. Gimple explained, 'There are a number of horrific walkers, but there is a mind-bendingly horrific walker coming up that I wasn't on set for, and I'm glad I wasn't [...] It quite possibly will make you throw up. I would just have something handy nearby as you watch it'.

The Walking Dead has always been known for its gut-wrenching special effects, but Dead City may just take things to a whole new level. And if Gimple's comments are anything to go by, viewers may want to keep a bucket handy just in case.

With the return of Maggie (Lauren Cohan) and Negan (Jeffrey Dean Morgan) in the series, who make their way to the city that never sleeps, Dead City promises to be a thrilling and exciting addition to The Walking Dead universe.

This six-episode spinoff is set to debut on AMC this summer. And even if things are likely to get quite gruesome, we can't wait to see what new horrors await them in the Big Apple.
