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.
