'The Walking Dead' Spinoff Character Details Revealed

'The Walking Dead' Spinoff Character Details Revealed

The fifth season of AMC’s The Walking Dead is coming up soon, but as we’ve reported in the past, the network is actively developing a spinoff series, rumored to be set in the early days of the outbreak. While no actors have been cast – or even rumored – for the new series, the folks over at TV Line claim to have gotten their hands on names and descriptions of the six principal characters, all of whom should be featured in the recently ordered pilot. Here’s the breakdown:

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.

AMC has declined comment on whether or not this information is accurate. Personally, I feel like The Walking Dead is already getting stale – hampered by a 16-episode season with a sizeable gap in the middle – and I’m not sure how the network intends to keep the subject matter interesting and engaging. With the pilot episode expected to shoot this fall, we likely won’t know much for a few more months.

The Walking Dead returns for a fifth season on October 12, exclusively on AMC.

Rumor: Marvel’s Phase Three Plans for The Hulk

Rumor: Marvel’s Phase Three Plans for The Hulk

When it comes to translating their characters to the big screen, The Incredible Hulk has something that Marvel struggled to get right. Ang Lee’s 2003 film starring Eric Bana was a complete mess, and the 2008 reboot starring Edward Norton didn’t exactly set the box office on fire. But with The Avengers, director Joss Whedon finally managed to do justice to the big green guy, thanks in no small…

Fans are eagerly awaiting AMC’s Breaking Bad spinoff series, Better Call Saul, which features Bob Odenkirk reprising his role as scumbag lawyer Saul Goodman. Even since the announcement that the show would move forward, the assumption has been that the series would be a prequel, taking place before the events of Breaking Bad, but new comments from executive producer Peter Gould tell us otherwise.
