James, Dickens, Colman Domingo, Danay Garcia, Austin Amelio, Christine Evangelista, Karen David, Jenna Elfman, and RubΓ©n Blades star in the series.

Gimple, showrunners Andrew Chambliss and Ian Goldberg, Robert Kirkman, Gale Anne Hurd, Greg Nicotero, Michael Satrazemis, and David Alpert serve as executive producers. AMC Studios is in charge of production.

The decision to cancel the show comes after the mothership show completed its eleventh and final season in 2022, with the series finale airing in November.
