Excitement is mounting for The Walking Dead season nine after a first look teaser image was released.
It seemed to confirm a time jump was coming, therefore following a similar path as The Walking Dead comics. And now there is more evidence to back up the fast-forward, after the casting of a new role.
According to Entertainment Weekly, producers have cast the role of Connie, though with a major difference to the comics. Playing Connie is deaf actress Lauren Ridloff, who has been nominated for a Tony Award for Children of a Lesser God.
