Who Will Be In The Walking Dead Spin-Off

Here is what we think is going to go down by the end of Season 5 on the Walking Dead. Purely speculation, but you heard it hear first.

Noah, played by Tyler James Williams, will re-unite with Morgan played by Lennie James as a nephew or similar relative. This pair, will with a few other members of the hospital and Rick's group go in a different direction than the rest of the Walking Dead cast, and onto a new spin-off show, or at least long enough to kick it off as Morgan did on the parent series.

Morgan, The Walking Dead

Morgan, who appeared in Season One, and for the great episode, "Clear"  in Season 3 was teased at the end of the first episode this year, after the credits, but we have not seen him since.

Morgan was the first person that Rick (Andrew Lincoln) encountered when he woke up from his coma in Season One. Morgan had saved the life of the former policeman, who was disoriented and unaware of the zombie apocalypse plaguing the world since he was hospitalized.

As he adjusted to the new situation, Rick briefly stayed with Morgan and his young son, Duane (Adrian Kali Turner). The father and son taught Rick how to defend himself and parted ways after raiding the local police station for guns and ammunition.

Rick wanted to leave the area and search for his family in Atlanta; however, Morgan couldn’t leave until he killed his "walker" wife.

Rick held onto a radio throughout Season One as a way for Morgan to get in touch if he decided to head to Atlanta. Many episodes led off with Rick talking into the radio to an unavailable Morgan.

Crazy Morgan

In "Clear" found Rick, Carl (Chandler Riggs) and Michonne (Danai Gurira) searching for weapons at Rick’s old police station. It was in town that the group ran into Morgan. But Morgan wasn’t the same man who Rick had met in the past. Time and loss had changed him. Morgan had failed to kill his zombie wife. He explained that he had been too weak to pull the trigger, dooming his son. Duane had been approached by his reanimated mother, who attacked and bit him. Since then, crazy Morgan had holed up in a building with guns, ammunition and booby traps to stop any walkers in the area.

Morgan had refused to return with Rick’s group, who were staying at the prison at the time. The character’s fate remained a mystery until this season. Wearing a mask to cover his face, Morgan had been tracking man-made marks throughout the woods.

TVLine has reported that the Walking Dead spin-off will focus on two small families as well as another character, comprising the six central figures in the spin-off series. There will be the Cabreras, a father and son; the Tompkins, a single mother with two teenaged children; and Andrea Chapman, who is reeling from her own personal tragedy.

The full cast as listed by TVLine includes:

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.

So far there is no official word that Williams or James will be in the new series, or in next season of The Walking Dead, so we feel that as guest characters, the pair will serve as a bridge between the two shows, and possibly hopping in between them in the future.

Daryl and Carol Go For A Ride

Daryl and Carol Go For A Ride

Rob Bricken at IO9 writes, "When it hit the ground, I literally said aloud "Please let the zombies follow them," and then, from inside the van there was the wonderful sound of the first zombie hitting the roof, followed by a dozen more. It was awesome, it was funny, it was creepy, and it was perfectly staged."
