Last season, we were introduced to several high profile characters on The Walking Dead and it looks like some are here to stay.
ENews is reporting that actors Tom Payne, Xander Berkeley, Austin Amelio, and Jeffrey Dean Morgan have been promoted to series regulars in the upcoming seventh season. The news comes as no surprise seeing that their characters are very significant in the comics with Payne playing Jesus, an ambassador for the Hilltop community led by Berkeley’s Gregory, and Amelio playing Dwight, right hand man to Morgan’s Negan, the villainous leader of The Saviors.
The full list of series regulars for season seven are Andrew Lincoln, Norman Reedus, Steven Yeun, Lauren Cohan, Chandler Riggs, Danai Gurira, Melissa McBride, Michael Cudlitz, Lennie James, Sonequa Martin-Green, Alanna Masterson, Christian Serratos, Josh McDermitt, Seth Gilliam, Ross Marquand, and Austin Nichols.
Season 7 of The Walking Dead is set to premiere in October with the first trailer expected to debut at San Diego Comic Con.
