New Cast Member Joins ‘The Walking Dead’ For Season 10

The Walking Dead series on AMC continues to evolve even as it shambles into 2021 and the continuation of its tenth season.

The long-running horror staple debuts the first of its six extra episodes in its current season Feb. 28, 2021. And–starting with the next episode on March 7–fans will see a new character join in on the gory goings-on, according to

Lynn Collins will portray Leah–a new character who is first discovered by Daryl Dixon (played by Norman Reedus)–in the new episode entitled Find Me.

Little else is known about Leah, including whether she will be part of the show’s 24-episode 11th and (presumably) final season that starts production in early 2021 and is slated to air next fall. A photo of Leah, as well as Collins’ table read video, can be seen on this page.

Collins is probably best known for her other genre roles as Kayla Silverfox in XMen OriginsWolverine and as Dejah Thoris in John Carter. She also appeared as “Suicide Blonde” in The Number 23.

Other new cast members for Season 10–as reported here in Horror News Network–include Robert Patrick (playing Mays), Okea Eme-Akwari (as Elijah) and Hilarie Burton Morgan, who plays Negan’s late wife Lucille through flashbacks.

The Walking Dead chief content officer Scott M. Gimple recently explained these extra episodes as being “the aftermath of (Seasons) 10A and 10B. It is part of that story. It’s connected to all that. Everybody just gave it their all.”
