Nothing truly ends. The Walking Dead franchise proved that fact with its eleven-season run. In addition, the flagship series spawns two spin-off series. Announced a while back, Tales From The Walking Dead will join Fear The Walking Dead and Walking Dead: World Beyond as the third spin-off series to spawn from the main series. Set to premiere sometime this summer on AMC, and we finally got a cast announcement for the anthology series.
Deadline has reported that Terry Crews, Anthony Edwards, Poppy Liu, Parker Posey, and Jillian Bell have all joined the upcoming series. This casting is said to be only the first wave of talent set to expand the world of the Walking Dead. Writer Scott M. Gimple shared his excitement about the new cast.
Anthony, Jillian, Terry, Parker, and Poppy are the first wave of singular talents who will further expand the Walking Dead Universe into harrowing, hilarious, heartfelt, and horrifying new realms and we couldn’t be happier to welcome them to the family, along with these terrific directors. More announcements, more wonderful folks to comeScott Gimple
The initial announcement of the series said that the series would feature new and established characters from within this universe. Currently, no actors previously seen on any of the three other shows have been announced for the anthology series. This would open up the possibility of many long-dead characters from the series returning for stories set before their debut in any of the other shows.
