The people at The Illuminerdi are reporting a fantastic discovery! It sounds like Tales of the Walking Dead, the third spinoff series of The Walking Dead will feature an episode that focuses on Alpha.

Tales of the Walking Dead is an anthology series that will tell stories about new or established characters within The Walking Dead universe. The first season will consist of six episodes, and casting announcements include Anthony Edwards, Parker Posey, Terry Crews, Poppy Liu, Jillian Bell and Daniella Pineda.

The series will see Walking Dead veteran Channing Powell as showrunner with Haifaa al-Mansour, Deborah Kampmeier and Tara Nicole Weyr set to direct one episode apiece. With Walking Dead and Fear the Walking Dead, director Michael Satrazemis set to direct three episodes.

Tales of the Walking Dead – Alpha

The Illuminerdi are always digging to bring us the latest and greatest, and this one looks like a gem. According to their sources, they have reported that Samantha Morton is tied to one of the episodes of Tales of the Walking Dead. She portrayed the skin mask-wearing leader of the Whisperers who terrorized the residents of Alexandria, the Kingdom and Hilltop.

This episode would have to be prior to her intro on the series as Negan killed her in season 10. So, this could be during the formation of the Whisperers or perhaps just day-to-day life among the skin-wearing group.

AMC is casting for a character named “Hailey,” a girl in her 20s of any ethnicity. She is described as intelligent, powerful, striking, and Type A, according to Illuminderdi.

Hopefully, this information is accurate because this would be an amazing episode.
