It’s official, “The Walking Dead” will return next year. AMC has renewed the show for a fifth season whcih will air next autumn. Scott Gimple will return as showrunner and the channel has decided to renew the show thanks to good ratings & because the premiere of this 4th season has been watched by 16.1million of people.
Regarding the cast, during this 4th season Sonequa Martin-Green (Sasha), Emily Kinney (Beth Greene) & Chad Coleman (Tyreese) have been promoted to regular cast and two more characters will be introduced during this season. Michael Cudlitz (from the series “Southland“) will portray Sgt. Abraham Ford & Josh McDermitt (from the series “Retired at 35“) will portray Eugene Porter. Both will be join the cast as regular characters.
Together with Cudlitz & McDermitt, also two new female characters will be join the cast. Christian Serratos (Angela Weber from “The Twilight Saga“) will portray Rosita Espinosa & Alanna Masterson (from the series “First Day“) will be portray an unknow role (maybe Tara Chalmers but this is just a rumor).
