Walking Dead Spin-off gets character descriptions

September 27th, 2014 by Todd Black Comments

The Walking Dead is easily one of the most popular shows on television, period. So it’s no surprise that the show is getting a spin-off.

And though the details for what the show will be about (other than surviving zombies) and when it takes place in TWD timeline (i.e. a prequel to the current show, or a possible same time different location venue, etc.) are still not known, TVline has gotten descriptions of the main characters for the spinoff.

SEAN 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 thirty-something 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.

That’s an interesting group eh? Two families right off the bat! Wonder how long they’ll last…
