Big News On THE WALKING DEAD Spin Off Series!

Bringing you the best in Horror Movie News, and all things Horror.

Off of the heels of a solid mid-season finale THE WALKING DEAD continues to be on fire. Several months ago AMC officially greenlit a spinoff series which has a lot of fans very curious as to what is going on there. Today we have some more news on that.

The new series, unofficially referred to as COBALT, will see it's beginnings being set in Los Angeles and production is gearing up at this very moment. Although the setting for the show will be in L.A. this does not necessarily mean that filming will take place there.

Cliff Curtis, Frank Dillane and Alycia Debnam Carey have been confirmed for the series.

Here is a list of the characters along with brief descriptions:

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 — has retreated to the outskirts of the city to recover after a horrible marriage.

The new series will see Adam Davidson directing the pilot episode. It will be written by showrunner Dave Erickson and Robert Kirkman. Look for THE WALKING DEAD COBALT in 2015.
