It took a long time, but now the time has come: with “Tales Of The Walking Dead”, the latest spin-off of the zombie universe is also available here. However, it cannot be streamed on Disney+ or on Amazon Prime Video, but on Magenta TV.

Local fans of “The Walking Dead” series have been quite spoiled so far regarding their German release. Both the main series (first on the FOX Channel, then on Disney+) and its two spin-offs “Fear The Walking Dead” and “The Walking Dead: World Beyond” (on Amazon Prime Video) always appeared one day after their US premiere, albeit with partly different providers.

In the case of the latest “Tales Of The Walking Dead” offshoot, half a year has passed since the US premiere of the first episode and we haven’t seen it in Germany. But now the wait is finally over, even if the franchise is now further divided in terms of German streaming home(s). “Tales Of The Walking Dead” can be accessed exclusively through the Telekom streaming service Magenta TV from today, February 19, 2023. All six episodes are available at once.

This is Tales Of The Walking Dead

The third “Walking Dead” spin-off takes a somewhat unusual path. So “Tales Of The Walking Dead” is one Anthology series in which each episode tells a standalone story from the zombie world, each with different characters. This way we are offered different perspectives on the apocalypse, partly with familiar characters, but mainly with new ones.

In addition to a reunion with eventual Whisperer leader Alpha (Samantha Morton), the six episodes of Season 1 will feature such stars as Anthony Edwards (“Emergency Room”), Terry Crews (“The Expendables”), Jessie T. Usher (“The Expendables”). Boys’) and Olivia Munn (‘X-Men: Apocalypse’) made their ‘Walking Dead’ debut. A similar mix of returning and new characters should be used in possible subsequent seasons, but a second season has not yet been confirmed.

Much more “Walking Dead”

Incidentally, “Tales Of The Walking Dead” is far from the end of the zombie flagpole. Although the parent series has now ended after eleven seasons and we can expect the conclusion of “Fear The Walking Dead” soon with season 8, the universe, like its hordes of the undead, continues to grow inexorably.

In 2023, we can see the new offshoots “The Walking Dead: Dead City,” in which Negan (Jeffrey Dean Morgan) and Maggie (Lauren Cohan) head to New York together, and “The Walking Dead: Daryl Dixon,” in which it takes the eponymous fan favorite (Norman Reedus) to France. And in 2024, the mini-series “The Walking Dead: Rick & Michonne” should finally clarify what exactly happened to former “Walking Dead” figurehead Rick Grimes (Andrew Lincoln). However, there are no German dates, let alone providers, for the three series yet.
