Two New Cast Members Join THE WALKING DEAD

THE WALKING DEAD is the break-out AMC hit that had everyone talking last year and when the show returns for season 2, we’ll find two new faces gracing our television screens.

TVLine reports that Lauren Cohan (Supernatural, The Vampire Diaries) is joining the cast in the role of Maggie Greene, “the daughter of farm owner Hershel Greene and a love interest for Glenn (Steven Yuen).” The role of Hershel, meanwhile, will be played by another new addition: Scott Wilson (of CSI fame.)

Cohan and Wilson aren’t the only new hires on the zombie hit – their casting comes following the announcement of the addition of actor Pruitt Taylor Vince. Vice will play a foreman who will work on the farm.

Are you excited for the return of The Walking Dead and the new cast members?
