AMC chronicles the World Beyond in the third Walking Dead series, starring Emmy-winning actress Julia Ormond.
The network launched the series’ first trailer during The Walking Dead’s mid-season finale on Sunday. Premiering in spring 2020, the series will focus on the first generation raised in the zombie apocalypse.
Ormond will portray Elizabeth, “the charismatic leader of a large, sophisticated and formidable force,” AMC says.
“We are thrilled to have Julia join our merry band,” co-creator Scott Gimple said in a statement. “I’m grateful for the talent, grace, intelligence, and humor she has brought to our set, our show and to this role. We—and the audience—are very lucky to have Julia helping bring this new world of the Walking Dead to life.”
The Walking Dead: World Beyond premieres in spring 2020. Aliyah Royale, Alexa Mansour, Annet Mahendru, Nicolas Cantu, Hal Cumpston and Nico Tortorella also star.
