The city that never sleeps never stays dead when you watch The Walking Dead: Dead City online (which you can do even without cable). Yes, the latest TWDCU spinoff is here, and it forces two of the unlikeliest survivors of the series to be allies.

The Walking Dead: Dead City date, time and channel

The Walking Dead: Dead City episode 1 began streaming at 3 a.m. ET on AMC Plus on June 15.
Its AMC premiere is at 9 p.m. ET today (Sunday, June 18), and you can watch via Sling .

Maggie (Lauren Cohan) and Negan (Jeffrey Dean Morgan) form an alliance because her son Herschel's been kidnapped by The Croat (Željko Ivanek), a gang leader who's believed to be based out of the undead-infested Manhattan. And if you need to stop a gang boss, the former leader of the Saviors is a good person to have in your corner. If you can trust him, that is. 

At the very least, this shake up — we're not in Georgia anymore, Toto — should provide a fantastic visual shakeup. All sorts of walkers and dangerous humans hide in each corner, and it's not like our protagonists like each other, either. Remember, Negan murdered Maggie's husband Glenn.

Dead City also co-stars Friday Night Lights alum Gaius Charles.
