Acting veteran Scott Wilson, who played rural farmer Hershel Greene on AMC’s “The Walking Dead” series for several seasons, has died after a battle with cancer.
Both Wilson and “Star Trek: Discovery” actress Sonequa Martin-Green will reportedly appear in the new season, reprising their roles alongside Jon Bernthal in flashbacks or a dream sequence – most likely timed to Andrew Lincoln’s departure. The announcement was made during the series panel at New York Comic Con.
The news also comes as Kirkman will use his own Skybound game studio to take over the final episodes for Telltale Games “The Walking Dead: The Final Season” following Telltale’s effective and sudden shuttering the other week.
Skybound says it also hopes to keep the original Telltale development team intact so they can be the ones to finish the season though nothing has yet been finalized.
