UPROXX 20: Nico Tortorella Loves Their Mom’s Pasta, Sinatra, and ‘Matilda’

The World Beyond, the much anticipated second spin-off to The Walking Dead, launches this Sunday night, following the 16th episode of the tenth season of the parent series. The World Beyond takes viewers to a different part of the country — the plain states — as it deals with a separate host of problems specific to an alliance of three communities.
