AMC announced two more cast members to its third “Walking Dead” series at San Diego Comic-Con on Friday.
“The Romanoffs” alum Annet Mahendru and “The Red Line’s” Aliyah Royal have joined the cast as Huck and Iris. The duo joins the previously announced Alexa Mansour, Nicolas Cantu and Hal Cumpston.
The untitled series will focus on the first generation to come-of-age in the universe’s zombie apocalypse. Per AMC’s official description of the series, “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.”
Jordan Vogt-Roberts will direct the series, which is co-created by Scott Gimple, chief content officer of AMC’s “Walking Dead” universe, and franchise veteran Matt Negrete, who will serve as showrunner.
The series is slated to premiere on AMC in spring 2020, joining the 10th season of the flagship “Walking Dead,” as well as the newly announced sixth season of “Fear the Walking Dead.” Season 10 of “The Walking Dead” is slated to debut on Oct. 6.
The franchise is also set to include a trilogy of movies led by former “TWD” star Andrew Lincoln, which AMC announced for the first time at Comic-Con would be released in theaters instead of on the network.
