With 50+ new Woodbury refugees pouring into the prison, we knew the cast was poised to swell for season four of The Walking Dead. So here are three more characters we’ll meet this fall.

After hearing about three other new characters on the way, plus three recurring characters that’ll be beefed up to regulars, it looks like the back half of season four will be adding even more survivors to the gang.

The folks at TV Line have the scoop, and here are the three new characters on the way later this year:

“While I can’t say if we’re due for another major death anytime soon, it’s looking like there will be warm bodies to fill any gaps. For midseason, the show is casting the recurring roles of John Tyler, a rough-around-the-edges and vulgar man with a propensity towards violence; Wayne Kesey, a gent in the 30s/40s whose book smarts are his main tools in survival; and Jordana Barraza, a Latina with a shameful past but a desire to learn right from others.”

Hmm. It sounds like “John Tyler” could fill the Merle void this season, while “Wayne Kesey” might be stepping into Milton’s role as the brain of the operation. As for “Jordana Barraza”? It sounds like she’ll slide right into Andrea’s conflicted mold quite nicely.

Are you looking forward to season four, or do you wish new showrunner Scott Gimple was heading in a different direction?
