Principal Characters Revealed for AMC’s The Walking Dead Spinoff

twdlogo - Principal Characters Revealed for AMC's The Walking Dead SpinoffWe learned earlier this month that AMC has given the long-discussed “The Walking Dead” companion series a pilot order, and today a character breakdown has arrived for the show’s six leads.

Per TVLine, here’s the fresh meat we can look forward to meeting:

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 offshoot’s pilot is being penned by showrunner Dave Erickson and The Walking Dead comics creator Robert Kirkman.

Look for lots more soon!
