We recently learned that The Walking Dead will have a spinoff television show that is slated to air by the end of this year. There is no premiere date set for the Robert Kirkman and Dave Erickson-penned show, but we do have some information surrounding the characters that are expected to be in the show.

The character descriptions are below.

unnamed-12SEAN 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.

I’m not sure the world needs anotherr Andrew to screw things up, but this seems like a pretty solid list of characters. With as popular as The Walking Dead is, I kinda expected that we’d see some actors attached to this show by now. Personally, I’m a bit over the series myself, but maybe a cast of new characters and situations will breathe some life into the series.
