Ahead of returning for its tenth season, AMC’s The Walking Dead has moved to add Juan Javier Cardenas to its ranks.
In an official announcement, it’s been confirmed that the Snowfall and S.W.A.T. actor will be playing Dante in the walker-centric show. That characters is one straight from the comics.
Introduced back in The Walking Dead #131, Dante is a character associated with the Hilltop and even has a relationship with Maggie. Given that Lauren Cohen isn’t returning to the TV show any time soon, we won’t be seeing any such Dante and Maggie romance on the small screen.
The official blurb on Dante has him pegged as “a rogue and fast-talking dude, he will play a pivotal role in the story of Alexandria this season”.
The Walking Dead’s Season 10 premieres October 6th.
