It's promotion time in 'The Walking Dead' camp.
A trio of faces from the third season of the hit AMC horror series will be bumped up to fully fledged regulars in the fourth season scheduled to air later this year.
It's been merely days since the ending of the highly regarded third season that was packed with action, shocks and surprises (which we won't be spoiling here) but the tidbits of info already surrounding the next season are already coming thick and fast. Chad Coleman, who plays the likeable Tyreese as well as Sonequa Martin-Green, as Sasha, will both return to the new series as proper series regulars. Along with the duo Emily Kinney (below), who has played Beth for the past two seasons, will move into more of a substantial role. Melissa Ponzio, the sole survivor of the Govenor's mass attack in the finale, will also be back as a series regular whilst of course David Morrissey will be back once again as the eye-patched psycho.
"With his group in tatters, his sanity in question, and his own son questioning his every move, Rick (Andrew Lincoln) must somehow pull everyone together to face their greatest challenge -- the Governor (David Morrissey). In order to survive, he must risk everything, including the group's very humanity."
