Walking Dead Spin-off Casting Sheet leaked!

When we return to the world of The Walking Dead next month, we can not only look forward to the new season, but also the promise of a companion/spin-off series coming soon! Earlier this month the series was greenlit with a pilot order, and now it seems that they are nearing the point where they are going to start casting!

AMC President Charlie Collier had this to say a few weeks ago in an interview with Entertainment Weekly:

“Almost from the beginning of The Walking Dead on AMC, fans have been curious about what is going on in the zombie apocalypse in other parts of the world. In fact, beyond requests for zombie cameos, it’s the question I get asked the most. Obviously, we all take our stewardship of the original franchise incredibly seriously and we, along with Robert, Gale, David and now Dave, are all proceeding with extreme care in order to ensure that we are offering fans something truly compelling, engaging and distinct. We’re thrilled to be taking this next step with these remarkable partners.”

The Series is apparently going under the Working title: The Walking Dead 2.0, and will center on two families in Kansas in the early days of the zombie apocalypse. The series is being written by Sons of Anarchy’s Dave Erickson and Walking Dead comics creator Robert Kirkman. We can only conclude that this casting sheet is preliminary. The final characters may differ greatly from what we see here when the show hits the airwaves next year.

The Cast of The Walking Dead 2.0

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 thirty something 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, forty-something.

The legions of fans the world over are no doubt chomping at the bit for this show. This will be a new look at this world. When you think about it, all we know about this universe is restricted to Georgia. We really have no idea what’s going on in heavily populated areas like NYC or L.A. How do you think this new series could differ from the original, and do you think we will come to regard these new characters with the same affection that we do for Hershel, Dale, Michonne, Glenn, Maggie, Darryl, Rick and Carl?

What do you guys think??? Are you ready to delve back into the world of The Walking Dead??? Can the franchise sustain 2 shows? Or is there limited thirst for all things Walker…?
