The Walking Dead: Dead City – Maggie and Negan form a deadly alliance in first trailer

The upcoming spinoff from The Walking Dead franchise, “Dead City,” starring Lauren Cohan and Jeffrey Dean Morgan, has released its first full trailer, which provides a thrilling glimpse into the post-apocalyptic world of the series. The trailer centers on the unlikely team-up of Cohan’s character Maggie and Morgan’s Negan, as they embark on a perilous mission to find Maggie’s kidnapped son, Hershel, in a derelict New York City.

The trailer starts with Maggie telling Negan about a raid that occurred a few weeks ago, leading to Hershel’s kidnapping. Negan, despite his past as a feared leader, is seen displaying a softer side, especially towards children, a trait that has been highlighted in earlier seasons of The Walking Dead. In one poignant moment, Negan asks Maggie how he fits into this rescue mission. “The man who’s got Hershel… you know ‘im,” Maggie ominously replies.

The intriguing dynamics between Maggie and Negan, coupled with the intense rescue mission, sets the stage for an action-packed and emotional series. The six-episode mini-series, set in a post-apocalyptic Manhattan, promises to delve into their complex relationship and the anarchy, danger, beauty, and terror that the city has become. The series is set to premiere on June 18, 2023
