Actress Karen David (Legacies, Galavant) is about to get a crash course in the whole “fighting the dead, fearing the living” thing, joining The Walking Dead‘s newest crossover Austin Amelio (Dwight) as a series regular reportedly named “Grace” on the upcoming fifth season of AMC‘s Fear the Walking Dead.
David and Amelio join Dwight’s crossover comrade Morgan Jones (Lennis James) on the upcoming season of The Walking Dead spin-off series, which has undergone some major changes of its own over the past year. Jenna Elfman, Garret Dillahunt, Maggie Grace, Mo Collins, and Daryl Mitchell joined James on the series last season; with Alycia Debnam-Carey, Colman Domingo, and Danay Garcia the only original cast members heading into season 5. Daniel Sharman and Ruben Blades are set to reprise their roles as Troy Otto and Daniel Salazar, though how their characters will come into play during the upcoming season is still unknown.
Fear the Walking Dead is executive produced by Scott M. Gimple, showrunners Andrew Chambliss and Ian Goldberg, as well as Robert Kirkman, David Alpert, Gale Anne Hurd, and Greg Nicotero, and produced by AMC Studios.
The Walking Dead is currently airing on AMC on Sundays at 9 p.m. ET; with Fear the Walking Dead expected to premere later this year, some time between April and June 2019.
