The Walking Dead Adds Four Series Regulars for Season 7
The Walking Dead is expected to reveal the loss of a cast member very soon, but until then, they're adding four more series regulars for season seven. The new regulars include Jeffrey Dean Morgan as Negan, Tom Payne as Jesus, Xander Berkeley as Gregory, and Austin Amelio as Dwight.

As of now, this brings the main cast up to an even twenty, which is two more than last year and an all-time high for the series. In addition to the four new additions, the cast includes Andrew Lincoln (Rick), Norman Reedus (Daryl), Steven Yeun (Glenn), Lauren Cohan (Maggie), Chandler Riggs (Carl), Danai Gurira (Michonne), Melissa McBride (Carol), Michael Cudlitz (Abraham), Lennie James (Morgan), Sonequa Martin-Green (Sasha), Alanna Masterson (Tara), Christian Serratos (Rosita), Josh McDermitt (Eugene), Seth Gilliam (Father Gabriel), Ross Marquand (Aaron), and Austin Nichols (Spencer).

Of these characters, at least one will be departing the main cast once Negan's kill from the finale is revealed, with Daryl, Glenn, Maggie, Michonne, Abraham, Sasha, Rosita, Eugene, and Aaron all on the chopping block. But more than likely, it's either Glenn or Abraham, especially since Gregory's promotion should mean more clashes with Maggie, who in the comics becomes the leader of Hilltop, and Dwight's promotion should mean more run-ins with Daryl. Gregory and the Hilltop Colony becoming more prominent is also likely a sign that the show will follow the comics, and will start leading the characters to the All-Out War storyline.

The Walking Dead returns this fall on AMC. The first trailer will be revealed at San Diego Comic Con, while casting news for comics character Ezekiel is expected to be released very soon.
