Samantha Morton Alpha is the first character of the walking Dead to appear in Tales of the walking dead – But it might not be the last. The six-episode first season of the spin-off anthology series focuses on new and established characters in the Walker apocalypse, including Dee (Morton) and his daughter Lydia (Scarlett Bloom), who are set before their time with the Whisperers on… the walking Dead. In an interview with Limitco-creator of the series and showrunner Channing Powell confirmed that the spin-off considers saying more Tales With the return of characters from the main series that will conclude with its final eight episodes this fall on AMC.

Gimple.

“There was something that really attracted me about Alpha personally,” Powell said. “I just love a great villain. A great villain loves a woman and a mother, and you know, I’m a mother,” Powell said. “Most of the time I write about the apocalypse or watch anything about the apocalypse, I’m thinking, How am I going to deal with this with my kids? What do I do? Do, you know, am I going to be an alpha someday? It was really exciting to explore my motherhood through her husband.”
While five of the show’s first six episodes focus on never-before-seen characters, Tales It “runs through the entire timeline of the main show and then goes beyond”, which means that characters who have already died in walking dead Shows can return in their own prequel episodes.
