In casting moves that ought to be familiar for readers of the graphic novels, The Walking Dead will add a trio of new characters on season two.
All will be related to the survivors' arrival at Hershel’s Farm and are described by AMC as follows:
- Hershel: A older veterinarian.
- Maggie: Hershel's daughter, Maggie, possesses made horseback-riding ability.
- Otis: Middle-aged ranch foreman with a sensitive side.
These individuals will join Michonne as new additions to The Walking Dead when it returns, hopefully in late 2011.
