The Walking Dead: World Beyond finally has its name. It comes with a new teaser trailer that adds cast and skews to the YA crowd. We’ve got the details!

Per a report from Deadline, the young adult Walking Dead sequel spin-off has finally got a name: The Walking Dead: World Beyond. A couple the recent Walking Dead episode titles have included ‘world’ in them, including last night’s “The World Before.” I’m not sure if there’s a connection besides some hinting mixed with universe building.

The title was part of a teaser trailer that featured Juliette Binoche as someone who is obviously large and in charge. After the early soundtrack that was all about that bouncy, YA life, Juliette Binoche’s Elizabeth departs a helicopter with a death squad that executes a small horde of walkers simultaneously. It looks like she might be in charge of preventing groups from trying to build hordes, which likely always end up growing out of control.

Also set to join the cast are Natalie Gold, who I missed in season two of Succession. She’ll play a recurring character along with Al Calderon (Step Up: High Water), Scott Adsit (30 Rock), and Ted Sutherland (Rise). They join previously announced cast members Nicolas Cantu (The Amazing World of Gumball), Aliyah Royale (The Red Line), Hal Cumpston (Bilched), and Alexa Mansour (The Resident).

This new teaser follows the New York Comic Con trailer from early October that introduced the core cast and their mission: to make life count. They’re going to do this by leaving the safety of their post-apocalyptic Utopian community in order to experience the wild before it gets repopulated. Set ten years after the apocalypse, The Walking Dead: World Beyond is set to premiere in March of 2020. It was created by Scott Gimple and series writer/producer Matt Negrete.
