New 'Walking Dead' Season 6 Photos and Character Details Revealed
"The Walking Dead" season 6 looks like it's all about "us vs. them" — and now there seem to be more of "them."
Entertainment Weekly has several new photos from the upcoming season of the AMC drama, including images of characters played by new cast members Ethan Embry and Merritt Wever. The two actors' participation in the show was announced at Comic-Con, but no details of their characters were revealed. Now, EW has the scoop.
Wever — who won an Emmy on "Nurse Jackie" — is playing Dr. Denise Cloyd, who is present in the "Walking Dead" comics. She's a surgeon whose skills will undoubtedly come in very handy after Rick (Andrew Lincoln) killed Pete last season.
Meanwhile, Embry plays Carter who is "a combo of a few characters [from the comics] that we actually haven't hit yet or weren't able to hit in other characters," said showrunner Scott M. Gimple. "He is an Alexandrian, and has been there the whole time, just quite busy."
From what we saw in the trailer, Carter does not see eye to eye with Rick.
And EW has a third photo of another new character, played by Corey Hawkins ("Straight Outta Compton), named Heath who is a supply runner for Alexandria. Maybe he'll prove to be a better scouting partner for Glenn (Steven Yeun) than the cowardly Nicholas.
"The Walking Dead" season 6 premieres October 11.
