For decades, audiences all across the world have been completely obsessed with any and all things zombie-related, with movies and television shows expertly tackling the bloody horror brand. Fans of the chilling genre have been quite spoiled in recent years, as Hollywood has been on a roll, churning out one gory project after another.



When The Walking Dead made its spectacular debut in 2010, viewers went crazy for it, and the apocalyptic series kicked off a resurgence in popularity for zombie media. From highly-anticipated spin-offs of the juggernaut program like The Ones Who Live, to the late and great George A. Romero’s long-awaited Twilight of the Dead, zombie-lovers are in for a treat this year. Here are some upcoming zombie movies and TV shows to watch out for in 2024.

9 Lisa Frankenstein – February 9th

Read Our Review

A zany and delightfully offbeat retelling of the acclaimed Mary Shelley classic, the horror comedy Lisa Frankenstein will mark the directorial debut of Zelda Williams (daughter of the late comedian extraordinaire Robin Williams), and tells the story of teenage outcast Lisa Swallows (Kathryn Newton) as she inadvertently reanimates a Victorian corpse (Cole Sprouse) via a tanning machine in 1989. Together, the murderous duo fall in love and leave chaos in their wake as Lisa attempts to mold the zombie into her perfect man.

Breathing New Life Into the Horror Classic

Oscar-winning writer and producer Diablo Cody penned the screenplay for the uproarious adaptation, and Williams has promised curious minds that Lisa Frankenstein will be unlike any other zombie flick they have previously seen and sets itself apart from fellow reboots and remakes:

“I know Hollywood gets a bad rep for regurgitating sequels and remakes and reboots over and over and over… and yeah, it totally does that! But it’s also finally letting me make the most bonkers, wonderful zombie script I’ve ever read, and for that, I will be forever grateful!”

8 The Walking Dead: The Ones Who Live – February 24th

The world’s beloved zombie killing machine, Rick Grimes will make his spectacular return to the small screen in the post-apocalyptic series The Walking Dead: The Ones Who Live, which will follow the former sheriff as he fights to be reunited with lady love Michonne in a world ravaged by terrifying foes both alive and undead. Andrew Lincoln, Danai Gurira, and Pollyanna McIntosh are reprising their roles, and are joined by Lost alum Terry O’Quinn and Lucifer star Lesley-Ann Brandt.

The Buzzed-About Return of Rick & Michonne

Rick and Michonne’s endearing love story will continue on in the highly-anticipated program, after Lincoln departed The Walking Dead back in 2019 when his character was seemingly killed during a bridge explosion after sacrificing himself. Lincoln was excited to portray to his fearless character Rick after a multiple-year hiatus, stating during the show’s press tour:

“It was remarkably easy putting the cowboy boots back on. My knees hurt a bit more, but apart from that it was great to be the sheriff again.”

Gurira was also excited to see what fate had in store for the star-crossed lovers, revealing that the series will tackle the zombie genre a little differently:

“It’s an apocalyptic epic love narrative. The epic love story aspect is what distinguishes it from other iterations of this world. We didn’t get to explore it a ton on the (original series). When love is the driving force, when it is the propelling thing, when it is making the plot move, what does that look like?”

“I had a little two person moment with Michael as Beetlejuice. I’d been in the first movie in group scenes with Michael, but in this, I had an actual moment where the two of us just. And it was just so crazy and thrilling, really to just be face-to-face with Beetlejuice.”

1 Twilight of the Dead – TBA

George A. Romero's Final Zombie Movie Twilight of the Dead
Roundtable Entertainment 

After years of production woes, studio run-arounds, and the death of horror master George A. Romero, the late and revered director’s conclusion to his fan-favorite zombie franchise, Night of the Living Dead, is finally in the works. Twilight of the Dead has been in the works since the early 2010s, after Romero was dissatisfied with the way both Diary of the Dead and Survival of the Dead ended.

A Horror Sequel Worth the Wait

Romero began working on the script with co-writer Paolo Zelati and wanted to explore what happens to the group of survivors from Land of the Dead and showcase the total destruction of humanity. Sadly, Romero passed away in 2017 from lung cancer, and the project was never able to come to fruition, with the studio putting the sequel on the back burner.

In 2021, it was revealed that the film was back in development, with Romero’s wife Suzanne telling The Hollywood Reporter: “This is the film he wanted to make. And while someone else will carry the torch as the director, it is very much a George A. Romero film.”

Brad Anderson (The Machinist, The Call) has signed on to direct the horror flick, with production of the project beginning in the fall of 2023. No cast members or release date has been revealed, though Twilight of the Dead is going to: “delve into the dark nature of humanity from the perspective of the last humans on earth who are caught between factions of the undead.”
