We know a little bit more about that spin off heading our way for ‘The Walking Dead’. A handful of character profiles have shown up that shed a little light on where things might be heading.
Here’s the list of five of the primary characters:
EAN 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 — yep, another Andrea! — has retreated to the outskirts of the city to recover after a horrible marriage.
So, what we have here are basically two families with one fifth wheel that are traveling around as survivors in the same universe as Rick and Daryl and the gang. Not the worst idea I could think of and at the end of the day it’s all going to come down to the writing. No plot or story info yet but that should all come to light soon as filming is set to start this fall sometime.
