TV networks are always looking for the next big show, and whenever they find that show, the goal then becomes milking that content for all it's worth, usually through spinoffs. One of the biggest shows on TV, seven years into its still open-ended run, The Walking Dead has already been splintered off into the almost completely disconnected Fear the Walking Dead, but you know there are more offshoot ideas swirling in the heads of AMC's programming execs.

There are only so many ways to spin a winning angle in this post-apocalyptic universe, and here are seven Walking Dead spinoff concepts that the world never, ever needs to witness in full, either on television or in the comics or any other format. Note that we acknowledge the ridiculousness of it all, and this isn't going to be the most serious-minded thing you read today. Now let's start things off by shutting down another prequel idea.

Before The Walking Dead

Did you ever wonder what life was like for Rick and Lori Grimes before the walker outbreak completely destroyed the world? When they were still in love and raising young Carl to be a brave, two-eyed boy. And when Rick and Shane were still best friends while busting criminals in Atlanta. If you have wondered about it, then that's probably as far as your thought process got, because those are the only elements to think about. Happy families just do not make for good horror drama follow-ups, not even if Lori and Shane share a flirtatious wink every few episodes.
