Pulling off a spin-off doesn't always work out. With poor storylines and drawn-out characters, it can become a recipe for disaster.
'The Walking Dead' is no stranger to spin-offs, however, as they've just announced two more characters are getting their own six-episode arc. AMC's 'Isle of the Dead' will star Lauren Cohan and Jeffrey Dean Morgan in their roles of Maggie and Negan, and it will be set in Manhattan, following the two characters as they explore a post-apocalyptic New York City, according to The Hollywood Reporter. Longtime 'Walking Dead' writer Eli Jorné will serve as showrunner on the drama which is set to air in 2023, so it's sure to see some success.
Indeed, some spin-off series, from sitcoms to dramas, have over the decades succeeded tremendously. Curious to see which shows made the list? Have a look at the gallery.
