David Morrissey, late of “The Walking Dead,” has joined the cast of CBS’ “Extant” in a recurring role for the summer drama’s sophomore season.
CBS is stocking up the cast of “Extant” with fan-favorite actors such as Morrissey and Jeffrey Dean Morgan to bring more buzz to the show in its second season. Halle Berry stars as an astronaut who discovers she has unwittingly put the human race on the path to destruction after she returns from a mission.
Morrissey will play a security honcho and celebrated general who has a history with Berry’s character. On “Walking Dead” the British thesp played the villainous Governor, a now-deceased character who had a surprise cameo appearance on Sunday’s midseason premiere episode of the AMC drama.
“Extant,” from Amblin TV and CBS TV Studios, is set to return to the Eye this summer.
