'Fear the Walking Dead' Spoilers: Arturo Del Puerto Joins The Cast, What Will His Role Add? [PHOTO]
Their ranks have decreased by two thus far, but the makeshift group of survivors fleeing an infected Los Angeles on Fear the Walking Dead will possibly be gaining another new face.
According to Deadline, Arturo Del Puerto from Ride Along 2 has booked a recurring role on the show's upcoming second season. His role is described as Carlos, someone who is guarded but "possesses a spiritual understanding of the world."
It is unclear exactly what role Carlos will play with Madison (Kim Dickens) and Travis' (Cliff Curtis) group, who are headed to the Abigail, Strand's (Colman Domingo) boat in the water, in an attempt to escape the apocalypse. The group has fled the "safe zone" that was supposed to be their neighborhood in L.A. but that was slated for being destroyed. They managed to rescue Nick (Frank Dillane) from a medical facility, along with Strand, but the struggle cost them Griselda (Patricia Reyes Spindola) and Liza (Elizabeth Rodriguez).
Now, Madison, Travis, Strand, Nick, Alicia (Alycia Debnam-Carey), Ofelia (Mercedes Masohn), Daniel (Ruben Blades) and Chris (Lorenzo James Henrie) are all awaiting the chance to get aboard the boat, in the hope that they will be able to escape the apocalypse, which is beginning to takeover Los Angeles.
The show, which is a companion series to the original Walking Dead, shows the effects of the zombie apocalypse from its onset.
The second season is slated to premiere on AMC later this year.
