The Cast of AMC’s WALKING DEAD is Ready for a Headshot

We've seen some shambling corpses. We've seen some lone heroes. Now it's time for the family photo. As reported on io9, AMC has released this promotional image featuring the full cast of their upcoming Walking Dead TV series.

Plenty of ammo. Plenty of desaturated hues. And throngs and throngs of decaying antagonists. That'll do.

The Walking Dead stars Andrew Lincoln as Rick Grimes, Sarah Wayne Callies as Lori, Chandler Riggs as Carl Grimes, Jon Bernthal as Shane Walsh, Steven Yeun as Glenn, Laurie Holden as Andrea, IronE Singleton as T-Dog, and Jeffrey DeMunn as Dale. It's set to debut on AMC this October.


  1. Hell yeah!

  2. Josh Flanagan josh (@jaflanagan) says:

    I don’t… sorry.

    Dale looks awesome.

    Best Hollywood related comic book picture i’ve seen all week :D

    Honestly though, this show is gonna kick sooooo much ass. The Walking Dead just fits so well as TV show pitch

  6. wearecareful wearecareful says:

    Awesome.  So stoked for this…

  7. JesTr JesTr says:

    Looking forward to watching this in October.

  8. Amanda Holden and Jeffrey DeMunn are both Frank Darabont rep players… no surprise to find them here.

  9. flakbait flakbait says:

    Awesome. I hope the kid is good, a lot will be riding on him, at least later on…

  10. vinh vinh says:

    I’m having trouble seeing Andrew Lincoln as Grimes, but I’m giving him the benefit of the doubt. I’m sure he’ll pull it off and then some.

  11. APG says:

    I don’t think I’ve ever been this amped for a tv show. Love it!

  12. cubman987 cubman987 says:

  13. s1lentslayer s1lentslayer says:

  14. androidmoser androidmoser says:

    Is Carl wearing a Science Dog t-shirt?

  15. Preacher Preacher says:

    Good catch.


    The Season 1 finale shows the group about to be overrun but INVINCIBLE and TECH JACKET show up and save them. 


    Heh….Tech Jacket…Go getcha some.

  17. Man, every promotional image they release just get’s me more excited.

  18. ActualButt ActualButt says:

    @androidmoser – Holy crap, he is! What else could that possible be? Good eye!

  19. Nice promo image. Although Rick holding a gun like in a scene from any Spike Lee films looks funny.

  20. matthaber matthaber says:

    I wish i had AMC.

  21. @androidmoser Nice catch!

     Looks awesome. Now I’m thinking of all the terrible, horrible things that are going to happen to these people though.

  22. @PeteJohn: Oh that can be a fun game…..

    "He loses his arm……that kid is in for a world of therapy…..that guy is definitely dead….." 

  23. Ali Colluccio WonderAli (@WonderAli) says:


    have they announced when this starts airing?

  24. WheelHands WheelHands says:

    Rock! Let’s do this!

    Though I do want to have a chat with whoever made the decision to rename Tyrese and settled on T-Dog. 

  25. flakbait flakbait says:

    Oh, I was wondering who T-Dog was. I thought maybe I’d just forgotten someone.

  26. thescimitar thescimitar says:

    Looks promising. 

  27. brassai2003 brassai2003 says:

    Where’s Michonne? Second season maybe? She’s not in the cast list. 

  28. Bendrix Bendrix says:

    The comic book come to life, like it should be. VERY promising. And love the Sience Dog shirt. Nice touch.

  29. androidmoser androidmoser says:

    @ActualButt & @PeteJohnWilson Thanks! It doesn’t look exactly like the comic logo (seen here), but I think it has to be a reference to it.

    @Preacher LOL!

  30. MisterJ says:

    Good pic 

  31. SirCox SirCox says:

    Gotta go with Josh on this. Dale looks great.

  32. gwiz gwiz says:

    Looks great

  33. My brother-in-law has a friend who is working on this and he swore it was going to be GREAT.  That’s a huge relief because I love the series and would hate to hate the show.  I just might consider getting a TV just for this.  I do think it’s a little strange if they decided to rename Tyrese T-Dog.

  34. k5blazer k5blazer says:

    T-Dog? I fear the Marketing dept got a hold of that one….I hate it.

  35. @k5blazer-Yeah, I wonder how that marketing meeting went?  Guy #1:  "We just don’t know if the public will by a black character named Tyrese."  Guy #2:  "Maybe if we gave him something more hip and "gangster" like "T-Money" or "T-Dog."

    I guess we should just be grateful they didn’t spell it T-Dogg or T-Dawg.

  36. ChrisG ChrisG says:

    So "T-Dog" is Tyrese? And he isn’t in the picture or am I just missing something? Thanks for posting this beauty. Made my day better.

     PS- Paul, maybe you should have named the characters from left to right instead of starting in the middle. I’m just considering the unfortunate people that aren’t familiar with the Walking Dead characters.


  37. Spoons Spoons says:

    Itty bitty tini tiny spoiler:

    Anyone else look at this picture and start thinking that a lot of these people are basically doing cameos?

  38. RobAbsten RobAbsten says:

    Better get used to holdin’ that gun with yer other hand, Officer Grimes. 


    Just sayin’. is all. 

  39. WheelHands WheelHands says:

    @Spoons: Actually most of the characters pictured make it pretty far into the series. At least by Walking Dead standards.

  40. thepowerout thepowerout says:

    tyreese isn’t ACTUALLY called t-dogg, is he?

     also, has anyone else noticed that andrea is played by someone in their late thirties?

     i’m guessing the first season will end with them arriving prison, maybe?

     incredibly exited to see how this one turns out!?

  41. WheelHands WheelHands says:

    @thepowerout: The name change hasn’t been confirmed but it seems to be the general assumption. There’s only one main character who’s name starts with a T, he’s a kickass black dude, the guy playing T-Dog is black, and T-Dog is the type of stereotypical name networks like to slap on tough black characters. So I think it’s safe to assume they changed his name.

    As for Andrea, I agree the actress is a bot older than I would’ve expected. But honestly the only important thing about Andrea’s age is that she’s younger than Dale, and that’s obviously accurate. Plus Holden’s a decent actress, and I’d rather have someone with talent play one of the female leads than some inexperienced young hottie. 

  42. j206 j206 says:

    The chick who plays Andrea may be a bit older. But who cares? She looks just like her. I just watched season 7 of The Shield, which she is in. And she really does look like her facially.

    And yeah. T-Dog? Ugh.

  43. This being Darabondt already had me excited. This image though….ohhhh man! Can’t wait.

  45. Bassoonjedi Bassoonjedi says:

    Looks like I’ll have to get cable….crap.

  46. AMuldowney AMuldowney says:

    This looks like it’s going to be good.  Who taught the cops how to hold guns, though?  Yeesh.

  47. jmsnyder jmsnyder says:

    I predict that this will be AMCs most popular show to date.  Internationally by far.  The zombie fans will unite and latch on to this BIGTIME!!
