Julia Ormond has been cast in a lead role for AMC's third The Walking Dead series, which the network has now confirmed as The Walking Dead: World Beyond.
Ormond's character, Elizabeth, is described as a "charismatic leader of a large, sophisticated and formidable force."
"We are thrilled to have Julia join our merry band," said the new series' co-creator Scott M. Gimple. "I’m grateful for the talent, grace, intelligence, and humor she has brought to our set, our show and to this role. We - and the audience - are very lucky to have Julia helping bring this new world of The Walking Dead to life."
This series is framed as a focus on "the first generation raised in the zombie apocalypse. Some will become heroes. Some will become villains. In the end, all of them will be changed forever."
The ten-episode first season is scheduled to debut in the Spring of 2020.
