While we all wait patiently for AMC’s fourth season of “The Walking Dead” to begin shambling our way, some new casting news has hit the wire that’s kind of unexpected. Then again, this show has taught us to expect the unexpected.
Deadline is reporting that The Twilight Saga‘s Christian Serratos (pictured) has been cast in the upcoming fourth season of AMC’s hit zombie drama “The Walking Dead.” She will play the tough and beautiful Rosita Espinosa, a character introduced in Issue 53 of the comic book. Rosita survived the mysterious undead apocalypse that has taken over the planet. Serratos will recur on Season 4 with an option to become a regular in Season 5.
Season 4 of the “The Walking Dead” kicks off on October 13th.
In the highly anticipated new season, we find Rick Grimes (Andrew Lincoln) and the group fostering a thriving community in the safe haven of the prison. Sadly, in this brutal world, happiness is short-lived and walkers and outside threats are no match for danger brewing inside the fences. The group’s home and new way of life will be thoroughly tested, and their struggle to survive has never been so perilous. Season 4 also introduces several new characters including Bob Stookey (Lawrence Gilliard, Jr.; “The Wire”).
