The Walking Dead alum Chad L. Coleman will join the cast of The CW’s superhero show Arrow for season 5 to play a villainous gangster intent on uniting evil.

Tyreese was a polarizing figure on AMC’s The Walking Dead. Whether fans loved his non-violent ways or criticized him for not being mentally tough enough, Chad L. Coleman did a fantastic job of bringing the character to live in the zombie apocalypse.

Now, Coleman will get another chance at acting on a television show based on a comic book enterprise, as IGN reported that the star will be a part of the cast of The CW’s hit superhero program Arrow.

Joining the cast for the drama’s fifth season, Coleman will play the role of Tobias Church, who is described as “an imposing gangster looking to unite the various criminal enterprises in Star City under his own singular command.”

As for the character of Tobias Church, it will be interesting to see Coleman playing the bad guy. Seeing the man who formerly played Tyreese as a powerful gangster will be interesting to watch, an should be extra fun for those who enjoyed him on The Walking Dead or The Wire.

Fans hoping to see the former The Walking Dead actor on Arrow won’t have to wait long, as he is expected to make his debut in the season 5 premiere on Wednesday, October 5, 2016 at 8 pm Eastern.

Arrow is one of the most popular shows on television. Adding Chad L. Coleman to a cast that has already featured The Walking Dead star Emily Kinney and currently stars Stephen Amell as Oliver Queen and Katie Cassidy as Black Canary can only do wonders for the program and help it reach an even bigger audience. As of publication, Arrow has a 96% approval rating on Rotten Tomatoes and IMDB users have given the show an 8/10 rating, proving that fans really seem to love the hit drama on The CW.
