Tales of the Walking Dead has just added Terry Crews to its cast alongside several others.


The upcoming spin-off from The Walking Dead has also added Parker Posey, Jillian Bell, Anthony Edwards, and Poppy Liu in its first major casting announcement since the show was announced last year.

“Anthony, Jillian, Terry, Parker and Poppy are the first wave of singular talents who will further expand the Walking Dead Universe into harrowing, hilarious, heartfelt and horrifying new realms,” said former The Walking Dead showrunner, Scott M. Gimple.


“We couldn’t be happier to welcome them to the family, along with these terrific directors.”

Channing Powell, a writer from both The Walking Dead and Fear The Walking Dead is set as showrunner. Michael Satrazemis will direct three episodes of its six-episode run, with Haifaa al-Mansour, Deborah Kampmeier, and Tara Nicole Weyr each directing one of the remaining three.


Tales of the Walking Dead is an anthology series based on the popular zombie survival-horror series, The Walking Dead.

Although little is known about the plot, the stand-alone series is expected to tell the stories of both new and established characters within the Walking Dead universe.

“We see so much potential for a wide range of rich and compelling storytelling in this world, and the episodic anthology format of Tales of the Walking Dead will give us the flexibility to entertain existing fans and also offer an entry point for new viewers, especially on streaming platforms,” said AMC president of original programming, Dan McDermott.


Tales of the Walking Dead will debut just as The Walking Dead’s 11th (and final) season comes to a close. But The Walking Dead fans don’t need to worry – although the main show is coming to end, the zombie-filled world of The Walking Dead is continuing to expand.

There’s already a Rick Grimes movie in the works, along with a spin-off about fan-favorites Darryl Dixon and Carol Peletier, not to mention another possible spin-off series that revolves around Neegan.

Tales of the Walking Dead will premiere sometime in Summer 2022.
