The Walking Dead's Two New Characters Sound Awfully Familiar

It meant a lot to Cliff Curtis when Fear the Walking Dead decided to make his character Maori

Once the identity of the victim is revealed in the opening moments of the season seven premiere, fans will have a better idea of how the story could proceed, and where these new characters will fit in in that story. Balancing things out with some youth is Jennie, "a sunny-side-up kinda teenager, kind, with a world-weary toughness".

The report lists the characters' names as Naomi and Jennie, describing Naomi as a "grandmotherly type who, having lost so many loved ones, is now willing to do whatever it takes not to have to bury any more", continuing: "Maybe she's being introduced to counsel Carol about the bad necessities of the post-apocalyptic world". We have met her type before in Beth (Emily Kinney), who died in "The Walking Dead" Season 5. However I do think that aspects of Naomi sound a little like Brianna from Hilltop. That sounds a lot like Carol became over time, although Carol would still be a young grandmother.

The next will be a teenage girl, close to Carl's age named Jennie, this could surely stir up some major girl drama between Enid and Jennie over Carl. Sounds like a similar track that Carol (Melissa McBride) took, eh?

The Walking Dead is taking on some more fierce females!

The Walking Dead midseason finale should either need Negan to make his presence known in a violent way in Alexandria or for Rick and company to finally meet Ezekiel and gain their biggest allies. Fans were outrageous over who was the receiving end of Lucille, Negan's (Jeffrey Dean Morgan) deadly baseball bat. With the first few episodes likely to surround the upcoming major deaths on The Walking Dead.

Reedus recently spoke with Conan O'Brien on the late-night talk show "Conan", and the actor teased what's to come in season 7.
