The Walking Dead universe Imagen Award nominees

The Imagen Awards support and encourage the inclusion of Latinx talent, executives and voices in entertainment media. The award competition was formed in 1985 and since then has featured the best and most talented Latinos in film and television.

It is outstanding that The Walking Dead fandom has such great representation in these nominees. We all know how talented the actors are, but seeing others recognize their greatness is wonderful.

The Walking Dead season 11

We will see Lazaro and Serattos return for the final season of The Walking Dead. Lazaro’s character Princess was last seen as a captive of the Commonwealth with Eugene, Ezekiel and Yumiko. Serratos’  Rosita will be seen in the final season as well.

Fear the Walking Dead season 7

Daniel (Ruben Blades) and Strand (Colman Domingo) will return for the seventh season of Fear the Walking Dead. The final episode of season six ended with the detonation of a nuke. This will make for an interesting story going forward.
