Trey Santiago-Hudson is ready to fight the dead…
The part-Puerto Rican actor is starring in The Walking Dead: Dead City, which premieres this Sunday June 18 at 10:00 pm ET.
The Walking Dead: Dead City follows the popular Maggie (Lauren Cohan) and Negan (Jeffrey Dean Morgan) characters traveling into a post-apocalyptic Manhattan, long ago cut off from the mainland. The crumbling city is filled with the dead and denizens who have made New York City their own world full of anarchy, danger, beauty and terror.
In addition to Cohan, Morgan and Santiago-Hudson, the series also stars Gaius Charles and Željko Ivanek, along with Jonathan Higginbotham, Mahina Napoleon and Charlie Solis.
Eli Jorné, who has been a writer and co-executive producer on The Walking Dead for multiple seasons serves as showrunner and executive producer on the series, which is overseen by Scott M. Gimple, chief content officer of The Walking Dead Universe.
“It’s The Walking Dead like we’ve never seen it before. We haven’t really lived in a city like this.” Jorné said at a WonderCon event earlier this year. “It’s New York; there’s skyscrapers up to the sky and a million and a half walkers. And for characters like Maggie and Negan, who’ve been running through the woods for a long time, it’s just a whole new world that’s just extremely claustrophobic, scary, and also, as you’ll discover, has pockets of survivors, you’ll get to see all the strange new ways they live in the apocalypse, it’s definitely like nothing you’ve seen before.”
Dead City is the fourth spinoff in the Walking Dead universe following Fear The Walking Dead, World Beyond and Tales of the Walking Dead and is the first sequel to the original Walking Dead series.
The series will air on AMC and AMC+. Subsequent episodes will move to the 9:00 pm ET timeslot.
