The Walking Dead” spin-off series may still be in the works, but they are now announcing major roles for the show. Who’s going to be in it? Read on for the details.

There have been reports flying around that Cliff Curtis will play the main character of the show, and it has been finally confirmed that he is. Curtis has played roles on “Missing” and “Gang Related.”

Aside from Curtis, two actors have been cast earlier: Frank Dillane (“Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince”) and Alycia Debnam Carey (“McLeod’s Daughters”).

The show will also join the zombie apocalypse, just like Rick’s crew but in a different location. That being said, the virus has spread all over the world, and we wonder where our new characters from the spin-off series will start their journey. Perhaps Rick’s crew and the cast from the spin-off series will cross paths at some point or maybe they will all get together at the end of the show?

Details about the recently announced characters are still being kept under wraps, but comic fans might just have ideas on what their characters are going to play.

Things are really getting exciting, especially now that “The Walking Dead” Season 5 is picking up its pace again, bringing in loads of action, not to mention that Rick’s finally back to his usual self, even better than before and with this spin-off series coming around. Soon, we’re in for zombie-infested nights.
