Meet the new survivors of The Walking Dead Spin-offEarlier this month, AMC officially ordered a pilot for the Walking Dead spin-off known as The Walking Dead Companion Series. The new series will follow a new group of survivors as they wander through the zombie apocalypse. TVLine revealed the list of characters that will be featured on the show and it will feature a father and son, a single mom and her two kids, and a 40 year old woman.
Here's the full casting call that was revealed, though it's worth noting that this isn't confirmed by AMC and some deviations could be made by the time the characters actually make it to the small screen:
Sean Cabrera: A Latino male in his early 40s, Sean is a good man trying to do right by everyone in his life. Cody Cabrera: Sean's whip-smart and rebellious teenage son. Known as the angriest kid in town. Nancy Tompkins: A thirtysomething single mom to two kids, Nancy looks like the girl next door, but there's an edge to her. Nick Tompkins: Nancy's screwed up teenage son. He's too old to stay home, too scared to flee. Ashley Tompkins: Nancy's mostly level-headed teenage daughter. Her ambition is in direct proportion to her older brother's failures. She loves her mom but it's time to get out of Dodge. Andrea Chapman: A somewhat wilted flower child, fortysomething Andrea -- yep, another Andrea! -- has retreated to the outskirts of the city to recover after a horrible marriage.
