The cast of “Fear the Walking Dead” has gotten even bigger!

According to Deadline, “Gossip Girl” alum Kevin Zegers has been cast in the upcoming Season 4 of the AMC series. Details on his role are being kept under wraps.

Shortly after his casting was announced, Zegers took to Twitter and Instagram to share how excited he is to join the zombie drama.

Zegers played Damien Dalgaard on the CW teen drama “Gossip Girl.” His other TV credits include ABC’s “Notorious,” Fox’s “Gracepoint,” and NBC’s “Titans.” On the film side, the 33-year-old Canadian actor appeared in “The Mortal Instruments: City of Bones,” “Transamerica” and “Fifty Dead Men Walking.”

Zegers is the latest addition to the growing Season 4 cast of “Fear the Walking Dead.” The actor joins previously announced series newcomers Garret Gillahunt, Jenna Elfman, Maggie Grace and Lennie James, who is reprising his “The Walking Dead” role, Morgan Jones.

The destruction of the Gonzalez dam in the Season 3 finale put the fate of every major character on the show up in the air, except for Madison (Kim Dickens), who was seen to have survived the incident at the end of the episode. But just last month, AMC released a photo from the set confirming that Frank Dillane, Alycia Debnam-Carey and Colman Domingo are reprising their roles as Nick, Alicia and Strand, respectively. The Hollywood Reporter also reported that Danay Garcia will return as Luciana in the upcoming season.

The addition of new faces to the show isn’t that surprising as the series looks to repopulate its world after Season 3 saw the deaths of series regulars Travis Manawa (Cliff Curtis), Ofelia Salazar (Mercedes Mason) Jeremiah Otto (Dayton Callie), Jake Otto (Sam Underwood), Troy Otto (Daniel Sharman) and Lola Guerrero (Lisandra Tena).

Aside from new characters, “Fear the Walking Dead” Season 4 will also feature a new location. As confirmed in last week’s episode of “The Walking Dead,” the series moved its production to Austin, Texas. The change of filming location was teased in the Season 3 finale, in which new villain Proctor John (Ray McKinnon) mentioned that he’s planning to set sail for “what’s left of Houston.”

“Fear the Walking Dead” Season 4 premieres in 2018 on AMC.
