The Walking Dead’s Samantha Morton will reprise the role of Alpha for Tales of the Walking Dead, an upcoming spinoff series in the works over at AMC.
Morton appeared in the ninth and tenth seasons of the main series. Her character was the leader of The Whisperers, a hostile group of survivors who disguised themselves by wearing the skins of zombies, before being killed and beheaded by Negan.
An anthology series, Tales of the Walking Dead will tell episodic original stories featuring both new and existing characters within the world of The Walking Dead. Channing Powell is serving as showrunner. Other confirmed cast members include Terry Crews, Daniel Pineda, Olivia Munn, Parker Posey, Jillian Bell, Anthony Edwards, and Poppy Liu.
The six-episode first season is expected to debut sometime this summer.
