Bets are now open – which of the three newbies will be walker chow first?

Jokes. But seriously, how long do you think The Walking Dead’s new characters will last?

Entertainment Weekly has this week released first pics and details of Alexandria’s newest residents.

The three new characters join the show in the upcoming sixth season, which will see our favourite group of survivors turn the passive safe zone aka Alexandria into a defence line.

Among the new characters is Alexandria’s medic Dr. Denise Cloyd.

Denise will be played by Merritt Wever who won an Emmy for her role in ‘Nurse Jackie’.

Also joining the cast is Ethan Embry (remember him from Empire Records?) who will play the role of Carter – his character will be made up of different people from the original comic.

While Carter’s role and character traits remain a secret for now, we do know that he will be introduced as an Alexandrian.

And finally, Corey Hawkins from ‘Straight Outta Compton’ will play Heath from the comics who is a supply-runner for the town.

So, they’re your Walking Dead’s newbies.

How long do you think they’ll survive?
