Unless the casting has been kept under careful wraps for quite some time and avoided the rampant on-set leaks surrounding the show, it seems unlikely that Alicia Witt’s character will be featured in the Season 6 return. It’s more likely that she’s been cast for Season 7, which begins filming in a few months.
There’s no word as to whom the actress will play, but with new communities and a new group of villains about to take over, there are plenty of possibilities. Of course, the show also introduces original characters in occasion.
The Walking Dead returns for the back half of Season 6 this Valentine’s Day, February 14th.
