Learn how to audition for an extra or principal role on The Walking Dead Season 6
Production for The Walking Dead Season 5 has came to an end right before Thanksgiving. That means producers, studio executives and casting directors are now casting for Season 6 of The Walking Dead.
The Walking Dead has come a long way from Season 1. The apocalyptic horror drama TV series was developed by Frank Darabont and is based on the comic book series of the same name created by Robert Kirkman, Tony Moore, and Charlie Adlard. The Walking Dead centers around Andrew Lincoln who plays sheriff deputy Rick Grimes who awakens from a coma to find a apocalyptic world dominated by flesh-eating zombies. He then sets out to find his family and encounters the survivors along the way.
The series has been well received by critics and audiences and has been nominated for many awards, including the Writers Guild of America Award and the Golden Globe Award for Best Television Series – Drama. It has also attained strong Nielsen ratings, surpassing various records for a cable series, including viewership of 17.3 million for its season five premiere, making it the most-watched drama series telecast in basic cable history.
On October 7, 2014, AMC renewed it for a sixth season. Due to the popularity of The Walking Dead, producers have kept a tight lid on extra casting call opportunity as well as speaking role opportunities.
