We already knew The Walking Dead’s as-yet-unnamed spinoff show would feature all-new characters. Now TV Line has what it says is the scoop on who these characters will be. Hey the new show’s got an Andrea, too!
Here is the list of new characters from TV Line:
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.
Geez, two-and-a-half messed-up teens? I’m not sure I can handle that.
As far as whether this will be the actual lineup on the show, we’ll wait and see. The Walking Dead producers sometimes pull the trick of using fake character names and descriptions, even giving those to the actors who are out for the parts. For example, Seth Gilliam will be playing comic character Father Gabriel in season five, but it was leaked that he would be playing a character named Michael Todd.
