Ezekiel may be headed to “The Walking Dead” in season seven. According to TVLine, AMC has released a casting call for “Augustus,” a recurring African-American character in his 40s, and he sounds suspiciously like the ruler of the Kingdom.
Ezekiel first appeared in Robert Kirkman and Charlie Adlard’s “The Walking Dead” #108 as the self-proclaimed king of the Kingdom. A former zookeeper, the character keeps his tiger Shiva close by his side. Described as “flamboyant and wise, nice and weird,” he is also a good friend of Paul “Jesus” Monroe, who appeared in season six of the television adaptation.
Likewise, Ezekiel was able to strike back against Negan and the Saviors after Jesus brought Rick Grimes to meet him. Thanks to Rick’s intel, Ezekiel’s Kingdom goes to war with Negan and his followers. If the show is looking to introduce Ezekiel, it may be gearing up for the “All Out War” storyline, which saw the two communities locked in deadly battle.
“The Walking Dead” will return to AMC for its seventh season this fall.
