With AMC greenlighting the pilot earlier in the month for The Walking Dead spinoff, details about the characters become known.

The character descriptions seem to corroborate earlier reports that The Walking Dead spinoff will take place early on in the zombie apocalypse, almost like a prequel to the main series.

Via TV Line:

Sean Cabrera – A Latino male in his early 40s, Sean is a good man trying to do right by everyone in his life.

Cody Cabrera – Sean’s whip-smart and rebellious teenage son. Known as the angriest kid in town.

Nancy Tompkins – A thirtysomething single mom to two kids, Nancy looks like the girl next door, but there’s an edge to her.

Nick Tompkins – Nancy’s screwed up teenage son. He’s too old to stay at home, too scared to flee.

Ashley Tompkins – Nancy’s mostly level-headed teenage daughter. Her ambition is in direct proportion to her older brother’s failures. She loves her mom but it’s time to get out of Dodge.

Andrea Chapman – A somewhat wilted flower child, fortysomething Andrea—yep, another Andrea!—has retreated to the outskirts of the city to recover after a horrible marriage.

Season 5 of "The Walking Dead" premiers Sunday, October 12th at 9pm ET on AMC.
