It has been quite some time since we last saw Tyler James Williams on The Walking Dead. Williams portrayed Noah, a young man who befriends Beth (Emily Kinney) at Grady Memorial. He loses Beth, his family and Tyreese (Chad Coleman), leading him to believe he won’t make it in this world. Just as he is about to have a new lease on life, he dies due to the cowardice of Nicholas (Michael Traynor) in one of the most gut-wrenching deaths of the series. He has had several memorable roles during his career, and he is currently starring in the ABC series Abbott Elementary.
This series is on fire! Created by Quinta Brunson, who is known for her self-produced Instagram show Girl Who Has Never Been on a Nice Date, she also writes and stars in the series. Abbott Elementary is a workplace mockumentary about a fictional school in Philadelphia that is severely underfunded and focuses on the lives of the teachers working there. The second season of this series will premiere September 21, 2022.
Abbott Elementry has been nominated for several awards across numerous award platforms, including Black Reel Television, Dorian, and now it has been nominated for seven Primetime Emmy awards, including the Oustanding Comedy Series.
