Here is a preview of issue #132 out tomorrow.
TVLine got their hands on some details that tells us a bit about what to expect from the spinoff:
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.
The pilot will be written by showrunner Dave Erickson and Kirkman and TVLine reiterated previous rumors that it “will be a prequel of sorts, one that would chronicle the early days of the epidemic and the effort to contain it.”
Variety confirmed that Tyler James Williams (Go On, Everybody Hates Chris) has been cast to play Noah in its fifth season of The Walking Dead. No further details, including how long the character’s run will last, have been revealed. Tyler has been seen on the Atlanta set last month.
There’s no Noah in the comic though so what is your thoughts? New character or just a new name for an old from the comic and if so, who?
Here is the official synopsis for season 5 of The Walking Dead.
Season Four of The Walking Dead ended with Rick and the group outgunned, outnumbered, and trapped in a train car awaiting a grim fate.
Season Five picks up shortly thereafter. What follows is a story that weaves the true motives of the people of Terminus with the hopeful prospect of a cure in Washington, D.C., the fate of the group’s lost comrades, as well as new locales, new conflicts, and new obstacles in keeping the group together and staying alive.
Stories will break apart and intersect. The characters will find love and hate. Peace and conflict. Contentment and terror. And, in the quest to find a permanent, safe place to call home, one question will haunt them…
After all they’ve seen, all they’ve done, all they’ve sacrificed, lost, and held on to no matter what the cost…
Who do they become?
