Although fans of the hit zombie series, The Walking Dead, are currently focused on its return for the second half of season 4, news on its fifth installment has indeed surfaced.
IB Times reported on Dec. 16 that the AMC program will begin casting for brand new regular characters, recurring parts as well as guest stars for season 5. Filming for the future installment is set to begin at the beginning of 2014.
The TV series was officially renewed for a fifth season back in October. Walking Dead's continued success had also led to a spinoff show that's slated to kick off in 2015.
Creator Robert Kirkman had stated that the spinoff "isn't tethered by the events of the comic book, and is truly a blank page," unlike TWD.
The Walking Dead is set to make its return to the small screen for episode 9, its mid-season premiere on Sunday, Feb.9 at 9/8 p.m. Central Standard Time. Be sure to keep checking back with Enstars for more of the latest info on the popular zombie series. A sneak peek of the upcoming installment can be watched below.
