After this past Sunday’s wonderful Talking Dead guests, which included Jeffrey Dean Morgan, Norman Reedus, and Greg Nicotero, The Walking Dead aftershow is continuing to fill the couch with a trio of those close to the show – and this time it’s the ladies’ turn! It was announced on Twitter earlier this week that Eleanor Matsuura who plays Yumiko and Nadia Hilker who plays Magna, would be making their Talking Dead debut alongside Executive Producer Gale Anne Hurd to discuss episode 9×10, “Omega”.

Based on the new images that AMC released, it certainly looks like it’s going to be a big episode for Yumiko and Magna,. The pair, along with Connie and Kelly, appears to be on a search and rescue mission for Luke and Alden, who we saw get captured by Alpha and The Whisperers at the end of last week’s “Adaptation”.
Hurd is a Talking Dead pro, having been on the couch alongside host Chris Hardwick 12 times discussing both The Walking Dead and Fear the Walking Dead. The prolific producer always brings along great insight and behind-the-scenes facts to her appearances.
The three ladies will be discussing Sunday’s episode, which is titled “Omega” and is described in its synopsis as “a new arrival at the Hilltop opens up about the leader of a group of mask-wearing savages. A search party sets out on a daring mission to find two missing friends.”
Talking Dead will premiere immediately after The Walking Dead, which hits AMC on Sunday at 9/8c!
Having studied Media & Writing at James Madison University, I always knew that I wanted to do some type of creative writing, but being able to write about zombies, Starks, and superheroes on a daily basis for Fan Fest is my actual dream. While I probably shouldn’t be as proud as I am to be so similar to Nick Miller, I do hope to one day write my own “Pepperwood Chronicles’.
