At Com-Con, AMC announced the casting of several roles for The Walking Dead franchise’s upcoming series, which begins production in and around Richmond, Va. next week.
Aliyah Royale (Iris) and Annet Mahendru (Huck) join previously announced Alexa Mansour (Hope), Nicolas Cantu (Elton) and Hal Cumpston (Silas) as cast members in the still-untitled third series.
The new series will focus on the first generation to come-of-age in the apocalypse as we know it. Some will become heroes. Some will become villains. In the end, all of them will be changed forever, grown-up and cemented in their identities, both good and bad.
Jordan Vogt-Roberts (You’re the Worst, Kong: Skull Island) will direct the series co-created by Scott M. Gimple, Chief Content Officer of The Walking Dead universe and Matt Negrete, who has been a writer and producer on The Walking Dead for the past five seasons and will be Showrunner of the new series.
The series will premiere on AMC in Spring 2020.
