The Walking Dead has promoted Tovah Feldshuh, Alexandra Breckenridge and Austin Nichols to series regulars, rounding up the main cast to a whopping 18. All three actors play citizens of Alexandria– which could mean that season 6 will mostly take place in Alexandra or these three will be joining Rick and his gang on the road.

Feldshuh plays Alexandria leader Deanna Monroe, Breckenridge plays Rick’s love interest Jessie Anderson, while Nichols plays Jessie’s son Spencer. All three actors recurrently appeared in the fifth season of The Walking Dead. Being promoted on the zombie drama, however, does not mean you get to stick around. As series creator Robert Kirkman always say, “no one is safe.”
Meanwhile, AMC has also released the key art for the upcoming season. The poster features
Andrew Lincoln’s Rick Grimes holding a rifle as he seemingly ponders on his next move. The show’s acronym is also present, along with some smoke in the background.
Season six of The Walking Dead kicks off on October 11 on AMC.
