We finally have a title for the third series in the TWD universe, The Walking Dead: World Beyond. A new teaser aired during The Walking Dead mid-season finale featuring new cast member, Julia Ormond. You can watch the teaser below.
Ormond will play a character named Elizabeth, who is described as “the charismatic leader of a large, sophisticated and formidable force.” She definitely looks commanding. She is the first cast member announced since San Diego Comic Con.
“I’m so thrilled to be working with The Walking Dead team — I absolutely love how they write for women in particular; a lovely, talented cast and great to be back with AMC,” Julia Ormond, Deadline
Deadline also reports added recurring cast. Natalie Gold as Lyla, a mysterious figure operating in the shadows on behalf of the cause she believes in; Al Calderon as Barca; Scott Adsit as Tony; and Ted Sutherland as Percy.
AMC announced the new series back in April, mentioning that the show “will feature two young female protagonists and focus on the first generation to come-of-age in the apocalypse as we know it. Some will become heroes. Some will become villains. In the end, all of them will be changed forever. Grown-up and cemented in their identities, both good and bad.”
The Walking Dead: World Beyond stars Aliyah Royale, Alexa Mansour, Annet Mahendru, Nicolas Cantu, Hal Cumpston and Nico Tortorella. TWD chief content manager Scott Gimple and Showrunner Matt Negrete created the show. Produced and distributed by AMC Studios, the series is executive produced by Gimple and Negrete, Robert Kirkman, Gale Anne Hurd, Dave Alpert and Brian Bockrath.
The Walking Dead: World Beyond is set to air sometime in the Spring of 2020.
