7 Perfect Locations for 'The Walking Dead' Companion Series To Take on the Zombie Apocalypse

AMC has officially announced that the companion series to The Walking Dead is set to begin filming in late 2014. The new series isn’t quite a spin-off of the mega-hit show about the zombie apocalypse. Rather, it’s a parallel drama that shows the chaos in other parts of the world. The Walking Dead creator Robert Kirkman commented: “There are many corners of The Walking Dead universe that remain unseen in the shadows. Being given the opportunity to shine a light into those corners and see what lurks out there is an absolute thrill.”

The current series is filmed in Atlanta and takes fans deep into the heart of the American south, where flesh-eating zombies tear apart what’s left of the human race. However, the show’s creators want to explore the gruesome post-apocalypse well beyond the reaches of Georgia with a brand-new cast and take on the world of The Walking Dead. Here are some of the places that would make incredible locations for the new series.

Bordering Bangladesh, India, China, Laos and Thailand, Myanmar is a unique location in southeast Asia. It’s also where the some of the earliest evidence of Homo Sapiens were discovered by science…and it could be the last place they ever walked.
