The Walking Dead Claim Another

By Dr. Know on May 5th, 2014

Seth Gilliam (Starship Troopers, The Wire) has officially joined the cast of The Walking Dead. Not much is known about his role at this stage other than the fact the character is named Michael Todd. The character has been described as “having two sides, displaying a friendly, puckish humor but also having a haunted side stemming from a dark secret.”

It has already been confirmed that Scott Gimple is back as the showrunner for Season 5 and sixteen episodes are planned. An October premiere is expected and it’s more than likely that we’ll get our first look Season 5 footage at San Diego Comic-Con in July.

I just hope they can rectify the mess that was Season 4. The show is clearly running out of ideas and if they don’t come up with a fresh direction soon it’s bound to wind up like Dexter.

The Walking Dead returns this fall on AMC.
