Williams, an alum of “Go On” and “Everybody Hates Chris,” isn’t the only new actor to be on the show in Season 5. In addition to bringing over the Terminans like Gareth from the Season 4 finale, newcomers also include Seth Gillam as Father Gabriel.
The synopsis for Season 5 reads:
“Season 4 of ‘The Walking Dead’ ended with Rick and the group outgunned, outnumbered and trapped in a train car awaiting a grim fate. Season 5 picks up shortly thereafter. What follows is a story that weaves the true motives of the people of Terminus with the hopeful prospect of a cure in Washington, D.C., the fate of the group’s lost comrades, as well as new locales, new conflicts and new obstacles in keeping the group together and staying alive.

“Stories will break apart and intersect. The characters will find love and hate. Peace and conflict. Contentment and terror. And, in the quest to find a permanent, safe place to call home, one question will haunt them … After all they’ve seen, all they’ve done, all they’ve sacrificed, lost, and held onto no matter what the cost … ”

“The Walking Dead” premieres Sunday, Oct. 12 at 9 p.m. ET/PT on AMC.
