AMC Issues Casting Updates for Fear the Walking Dead, “Scary Stories” Actress Zoe Colletti Enters the Apocalypse
The network has also promoted two others to series regular status.

AMC’s The Walking Dead spinoff series, Fear the Walking Dead, was renewed for a sixth season back in July and went into the Season 5 finale with confidence—ending on a huge cliffhanger many fans are no doubt still anxious about. We assume no news is good news on that front, but the end of the week did bring with it some casting updates for the series as we slowly approach the new season.
For starters, the show is welcoming Zoe Colletti (Scary Stories to Tell in the Dark) as a new series regular, Deadline reports. Her specific character has yet to be detailed, but it is apparently “a pivotal new role that will unfurl as the season progresses.”
In addition, current recurring cast members Mo Collins and Colby Hollman have been upped to series regulars themselves. They play the parts of Sarah and Wes, respectively.
Season 6 of Fear the Walking Dead will continue to follow this group of survivors who have made it their mission to help others, even in the wake of great adversity. No details regarding where the new season might go or when it will premiere are available at this time, but we’re bound to hear more about what’s in store for us in the months ahead following the continuation of The Walking Dead Season 10.
In the meantime, you can follow Dead Entertainment for all the latest news and information on this show and much more. Stay tuned for updates!
