The Walking Dead star David Morrissey has joined the cast of the CBS series Extant.

Season 1 followed Molly Woods an astronaut who returns after a year in outer space to discovers that she has been impregnated by an alien life-form.

The which series is produced by Steven Spielberg’s Amblin TV and stars Halle Berry, has signed Morrisey who previously played ‘The governor’ in AMC The Walking Dead, as General Tobias Shepherd, the Head of the Global Security Commission who has a personal history with ISEA astronaut Molly Woods.

Extant is heading in a new direction for its second season and will move away from Molly’s work at the ISEA and instead focus on the search for her alien son who is threatening the human race. That new creative direction has prompted a number of changes to the cast.

The series airs in the US on CBS and has its first run in the UK on amazon Prime, with Syfy securing a deal to air it after.
