According to THR, Steven Ogg who plays Simon, Kaetlyn Nacon who plays Enid, and Pollyanna McIntosh who plays Jadis have been promoted to full-time roles.
Andrew Lincoln, the British actor who is now playing as Rick Grimes in AMC's "The Walking Dead," admits he has been pumped up for the show's Season 8 premiere which is also the series' 100th episode.
Although "The Walking Dead" Season 8 is expected to pick up where the show left off earlier this month, Scott M. Gimple assured that fans can expect a more intense and thrilling journey for Rick and his allies in the newest installment.
Season 3 introduces several new characters such as Troy (Daniel Sharman), Jake (Sam Underwood) and Russell (Dayton Callie).
Along with the key artwork for Season 3, AMC has confirmed via an official press release that Fear the Walking Dead will return for Season 4. Nacon, meanwhile, plays Enid, a Hilltop resident and love interest of Rick's son Carl, while McIntosh plays Jadis, the leader of the mysterious Scavengers.More news: Sylvester Stallone's Role in Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 is Confirmed
Finally, we have a character that everyone is going to want to see get her comeuppance.
The decision came after the AMC series wrapped up its seventh season where viewers witnessed the deaths of Glenn (Steven Yeun), Abraham (Michael Cudlitz), and Sasha (Sonequa Martin-Green).
What do you think about these three promotions for The Walking Dead season 8? "We are thrilled to be joining "Fear The Walking Dead" and couldn't be more excited to work alongside the wonderful team at AMC on this show", Chambliss and Goldberg also stated.
Season eight will see Rick and his allies - the Hill Top and The Kingdom - engage in a bitter war with Negan. Clearly a little bit of Negan has rubbed off on Simon who seems to just enjoy being a bad guy, rather than being one of these tortured souls that The Walking Dead is so full of.
