On October 29, 2013, AMC officially renewed the Golden Globe Award nominated horror drama series “The Walking Dead for a fifth season. Darkwoods Productions, Circle of Confusion and Valhalla Entertainment will begin production on season five in early 2014. The show’s casting directors in Los Angeles and Atlanta will begin holding auditions. Actors may be considered as long as they are eligible to work in Atlanta and in the United States. Shooting takes place in the state of Georgia. The extras and stand-ins are cast throughout the entire season on a daily basis as needed. Extras who are hired to play zombies are required to attend a brief “Zombie School” to learn how to bring the characters to life. The series is based on the comic book series of the same name by Robert Kirkman, Tony Moore, and Charlie Adlard.
“The Walking Dead” is centered around Rick Grimes, a small-town police officer from Cynthiana, Kentucky, his family, and a number of other survivors who have banded together in order to survive after the world is overrun with zombies or as The Walking Dead characters call them, Walkers. As the series progresses, the characters become more developed, and their personalities shift under the stress of a zombie apocalypse. Fighting growing despair — and sometimes each other — the group searches for a secure location which they can finally call home. Season 5 begins with Rick and the group is heading to Washington DC, where they meet new danger and a new enemy. Once again, Rick must do whatever it takes to keep the rest of the group safe.
Starring in “The Walking Dead” is BAFTA Awards nominee Andrew Lincoln as the show’s main protagonist Rick Grimes. Among the many other actors starring in the series is two-time Young Artist Awards nominee Chandler Riggs as Rick’s son Carl Grimes; Steven Yeun is Glenn Rhee, the son of Korean immigrants; Norman Reedus plays Southern hunter and expert tracker Daryl Dixon; Lawrence Gilliard, Jr. plays Bob Stookey; Melissa McBride plays the fragile character Carol Peletier; Scott Wilson portrays Hershel Greene; Emily Kinney plays Beth Greene; Chad L. Coleman plays Tyreese; and Sonequa Martin-Green plays Sasha.
