'The Walking Dead' season 5 casts: Father Gabriel Stokes & Series To Keep Going Pass Season 10.June 10, 2014 7 Comments
Season 5 of AMC's original series titled 'The Walking Dead' is getting ready to premiere in October but already the new season has received a poster and a behind the scenes fan look at one of the sets.
'The Walking Dead' can now add a new character to its roaster or the premiere of a new of many characters that would be featured in this season. The new character that I speak of is Father Gabriel Stokes. Stokes is refered to as a holy man with dark secrets.
The character will be played by actor Seth Gilliam (The Wire). The new character look came from an onset photo that you can see below:
Comic Book Back Story: Before the apocalypse Stokes was the reverend of a local community church in Georgia. However, he harbors a dark secret: he turned away survivors during the early days of the zombie outbreak and listened to the screams of the dying men, woman and children as they were ravaged by walkers outside the church walls.
Knowing this and what kind of actor Gilliam is I can't wait to see what fans have in store for the new season of 'The Walking Dead'.
Also, in a recent interview, show producer David Alpert revealed that the series go as far as season 12:
“I happen to love working from source material, specifically because we have a pretty good idea of what season 10 is gonna be. We know where season 11 and 12…we have benchmarks and milestones for those seasons if we’re lucky enough to get there.”
What do you think? Do you think Gilliam would be a good Father Gabriel Stokes? Let me know by commenting below.
The Walking Dead is set to return to AMC this October.
