It has been about three weeks since AMC finally confirmed it had ordered a pilot for a companion series to The Walking Dead, and we're finally starting to get some basic details about the show.
TVLine reports that they've obtained a list of character descriptions, which show that the series would focus on two small families with teenage kids and another woman.
Here's the list that TVLine published:
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 thirtysomething 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.
The series is going to be set in the same world as The Walking Dead, but will follow the zombie apocalypse through a completely different perspective. AMC has said the series will not take place in Georgia, like The Walking Dead does.
The pilot was written by Walking Dead creator Robert Kirkman and Dave Erickson. Rumors have been swirling that the series will show the early days of the zombie outbreak, details that The Walking Dead left out by having its main character in a coma at that point in the story.
The Walking Dead Season 5 premieres Oct. 12.
