AMC's Fear the Walking Dead continues to finalize its Season 5 roster with the promotion of Alexa Nisenson to series regular status. This news comes via Deadline just after the announcement that Once Upon a Time's Karen David has joined the cast in her own recurring role.

Nisenson plays the role of Charlie, who was a member of the Vultures and eventually joined the current band of survivors after killing Nick Clark as revenge for the murder of another member of her group. Her character has since come full circle and she will continue to be a regular part of the show going forward.

She will be joined by Lennie James' Morgan Jones and another crossover character with Austin Amelio's Dwight moving over from the main series as well. In addition, it was previously reported that Ruben Blades and Daniel Sharman would be returning to reprise their roles of Daniel Salazar and Troy Otto respectively. The spinoff series is still very much in a transition phase after it ditched most of its original cast, leaving behind only Alicia Clark and a handful of newer additions, including Charlie.

Fear the Walking Dead will return for its fifth season sometime in 2019. Last year, it premiered its fourth season immediately following The Walking Dead's Season 8 finale in April, but there is no official word yet on whether the timing will play out similarly this time around. As usual, stay tuned to Dead Entertainment for all of the latest on these shows and more.
