AMC Studios has unveiled new cast members for its upcoming The Walking Dead spinoff, Tales of the Walking Dead.
Terry Crews (Brooklyn Nine-Nine), Parker Posey (Lost in Space), Jillian Bell (Rough Night), Anthony Edwards (ER) and Poppy Liu (Hacks) will act in the upcoming six-episode anthology series.
Each episode will cover its own standalone plot that follows both new and previously introduced characters in the franchise. AMC has not disclosed which characters will appear in the series, nor has the production company said whether the characters will appear together or exclusively in separate episodes.
Haifaa al-Mansour, Deborah Kampmeier and Tara Nicole Weyr will each direct one episode, while Michael Satrazemis, who is also producing the series, will direct three episodes. The series is executive produced by Scott M. Gimple, the former Walking Dead showrunner. Channing Powell will act as showrunner on the anthology spin-off.
“Anthony, Jillian, Terry, Parker and Poppy are the first wave of singular talents who will further expand the Walking Dead Universe into harrowing, hilarious, heartfelt and horrifying new realms and we couldn’t be happier to welcome them to the family, along with these terrific directors. More announcements, more wonderful folks to come,” Gimple said in a statement.
Tales of the Walking Dead is currently in production and will premiere this summer on AMC and AMC+.
