Masterson plays Tara, the woman who has been with Glenn after encountering The Governor during the first half of season 4.

Serratos will continue her role as Rosita, member of the army helping Abraham to escort Eugene to Washington, and West, who was introduced on Sunday, will soon become more familiar to viewers as Gareth, the head of the group living at Terminus.

“Seeing Gareth and Rick and the people of Terminus and our survivors go head-to-head is going to be interesting,” The Walking Dead’s executive producer/comics creator Robert Kirkman told THR. “There is a very deep, dark and storied history to Terminus and how these people came to be that will be revealed in season five.”

Season five is set to begin filming next month with an October return date.
