Angela Kang, the showrunner of The Walking Dead, has revealed that Josh Hamilton, the star of 13 Reasons Why, will join the show in season 11. Hamilton is most recognised for his performance as Matt Jensen, the series’ protagonist Clay’s father, in Netflix’s 13 Reasons Why (Dylan Minnette). He also played Hank Foxx/Henry Renard in American Horror Story: Coven. Eighth Grade, False Positive, and The Map of Tiny Perfect Things are among Hamilton’s cinematic credits.
After an almost year-long production delay, The Walking Dead’s final chapter is expected to broadcast in August. The Walking Dead universe has already expanded beyond the main show with a cast of spin-offs, including Fear the Walking Dead and the poorly The Walking Dead: World Beyond, thanks to the show’s tremendous appeal with fans.
The anthology series Tales of the Walking Dead and a show following Norman Reedus’ Daryl and Melissa McBride’s Carol have both been confirmed and are now in production. A Rick Grimes trilogy, starring Andrew Lincoln, is also in the works.
Angela Kang, the showrunner for The Walking Dead, announced numerous fresh casting options for the last season during the Comic-Con@Home event, including Josh Hamilton as Lance Hornsby. “We have a number of new characters this season, but two of our main castings are the amazing Lila Robins, who will play Pamela Milton, and the equally fantastic Josh Hamilton, who will play Lance Hornsby, for our comic lovers.“
Lance Hornsby, Hamilton’s character, is a devoted vice governor of the Commonwealth. Pamela Milton, the governor of the Commonwealth community, is played by Lila Robins. Michael James Shaw, who plays Commonwealth military leader Mercer, will join them as a previously announced new series regular.
Season 11 sets up The Walking Dead’s storey to end on a strong note with all of these amazing new casting additions. Season 11 of The Walking Dead premieres on AMC on August 22.
