I am a big [The Walking Dead](series:201193) fan. So, when the latest news about The Walking Dead spin-off was released I was more than happy that Robert Kirkman and Dave Erickson are taking us on another apocalyptic journey. AMC has already ordered the pilot episode of the show named "Cobalt" should premiere some time in late 2015.
The spin-off will have nothing to do with the group we all know and love. The show will be set at the beginning of the Zombie Apocalypse and will have a different location, which is yet to be revealed. The show will begin with six main characters. Cliff Curtis (Training Day) will play the lead role. The other two cast members that have been announced are Frank Dillane (Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince) and Alycia Debnam Carey (Into The Storm).
Sean Cabrera: A Latino man in his early 40s. A good guy trying to do right by everyone. So far, he sounds a lot like Rick.
Cody Cabrera: The teen son of Sean. A smart but rebellious teenager, who has a chip on his shoulder. Sound familiar?
Nancy Tompkins: 30-something single mom. She's the girl next door.
Nick Tompkins: Son of Nancy. Nick is a young adult with serious issues.
Ashley Tompkins: A level headed teen with a lot of drive and ambition.
Andrea Chapman: 40-something flower child who has left the city after a bad marriage. Just what we need, another Andrea.
Only time will tell if the spin-off can stand up to the original. I do fear that fans can only take so much of the Zombie Apocalypse before they burn out on zombies all together. Let's hope that never happens, especially with Season 5 coming soon!
