Thus, Daniella Pineda, who will soon premiere her latest film Jurassic World Dominion again as the dinosaur vet Zia Rodríguez in the closing of the Jurassic World trilogy, joins the rest of the cast already announcing Tales of the Walking Dead with Terry Crews ( Brooklyn Nine-Nine), Anthony Edwards (ER), Poppy Liu (Hacks), Killian Bell (Workaholics) and Parker Posey (Lost in Space), all of them as main protagonists of the first six episodes of this new spin-off.
Let’s remember that Tales of the Walking Dead is an anthology of six different and independent stories set in AMC’s zombie universe of The Walking Dead, thus introducing a series of new characters that will have to survive the apocalypse of the walkers. The showrunner of this new series is Channing Powell, writer and producer of The Walking Dead and Fear the Walking Dead, under the tutelage of Scott Gimple, creative director of the so-called The Walking Dead Universe.
The first three episodes of Tales of the Walking Dead are directed by franchise veteran director Michael E. Strazemis, while the other three are directed by Tara Nicole Weyr (The Purge), Haifaa Al-Mansour (The Good Lord Bird) and Deborah Kampmeier (Clarice).
Tales of the Walking Dead opens this summer between seasons of The Walking Dead and Fear the Walking Dead.
