The third ‘Walking Dead’ series still doesn’t have a name (although comic book creator Robert Kirkman suggested “Look Who’s Walking”), but AMC still unveiled a first-look trailer at New York Comic Con. The new show offers a look at a life viewers of the two existing ‘Walking Dead’ shows haven’t seen– one that resembles normalcy. A generation of kids has grown up in safety, or rather mundanity, attending a normal high school, complete with extracurricular activities like track and Tae Quon Do. But you know teenagers. They’re never satisfied with how good they have it. They know a larger world exists, and a quartet of outsiders decides to venture out beyond their safe zone, because… reasons.
Aliyah Royale stars as Iris, with Annet Mahendru as Huck. They are expected to be the show’s main characters. They are accompanied by Nicolas Cantu as the snappily (if somewhat oddly)-dressed Elton, a small-for-his-age black belt, and stocky Hal Cumpston as shy loner Silas. Iris and Huck’s fathers have seemingly ventured out into the zombie-infested wasteland. It seems they are looking for a settlement even larger than their own, which is explained to consist of 9,671 survivors.
The foursome pack up, Elton puts on a brown corduroy suit complete with vest (seriously, of all the things, THAT ugliness survived the apocalypse?!) and they head out.
Check out the new trailer, direct from NYCC:
Mansour’s character, Hope, is described as “a good-natured rule-breaker who lives for today. She is likable and funny on the outside but sad on the inside.” Tortorella plays Felix, “an honorable man of his word who isn’t afraid to fight for others’ safety and acceptance,” while Holt portrays Leo Bennett, “a solid family man and respected professor with a generous heart and unwavering optimism for the future. He’d risk his life to save the people he cares about.”
The third ‘Walking Dead’ series will arrive on AMC in the spring of 2020.
