The Fear the Walking Dead ensemble is about to get a little larger!
While initially created to follow a family throughout the apocalypse, Fear the Walking Dead has since evolved to be more like the flagship series. According to Deadline, the series will be adding a new face to the mix as well as promoting two recurring cast members to regular roles for season 6.
Zoe Colletti (Scary Stories to Tell in the Dark) is the newest member of the cast, however, AMC is remaining tight-lipped about who she’ll be playing. Her character’s name has yet to be released however the description promises she’ll be a “pivotal character”.
Meanwhile, the series has also upped Mo Collins and Colby Hollman to the main cast for the upcoming season. Collins played Sarah, a woman who met Morgan back in season 4 while Hollman played her brother, Wes. They joined the group with a passion for helping people and finally seemed to mesh with everyone.
The show also stars Alycia Debnam-Carey, Colman Domingo, Lennie James, Danay Garcia, Maggie Grace, Garret Dillahunt, Jenna Elfman, Alexa Nisenson, Ruben Blades, Austin Amelio, and Karen David.
There is no word yet when the sixth season will premiere however it was confirmed for sometime in 2020. In the meantime, AMC is hard at work expanding the TWD universe with more spin-off series in the works.
