A Few Character Details For Walking Dead Spin-Off

By: Dave Clark

A few weeks ago we got news that AMC had ordered a pilot episode for a companion series of The Walking Dead. We weren't told much aside from Robert Kirkman's involvement along with showrunner Dave Erickson. But now, thanks to TVLine, we have a few summaries of some of the characters we may expect from the new series:

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 spin-off series has been rumored to be a bit of a prequel to The Walking Dead. Perhaps we'll get to see an area where humans outnumber walkers? Or maybe we'll see what we missed while Rick was in his coma. Who knows for sure, all I truly know is that more Walking Dead, is not a bad thing.
