AMC's The Walking Dead and CBS' NCIS.

  • Seth Gilliam (The Wire, Teen Wolf) has joined the drama's upcoming fifth season as a new series regular. He will play Michael Todd, who displays a friendly, puckish humor but also has a haunted side stemming from a dark secret.
  • TV's most-watched drama has already been renewed for Season 12 but stars Sean Murray, Pauley Perrette, David McCallum and Rocky Carroll have finally signed new contracts to keep them on the drama through its 13th year. Michael Weatherly's two-year deal is expected to close shortly - while fellow regulars Mark Harmon, Brian Dietzen and Emily Wickersham are on different contract cycles.
