The show is additionally filming in the Boston area from April through July, and Kendall Cooper Casting, based in Boston, is actively seeking extras. Apart from walkers, the agency specified in its casting call that it requires extras to portray soldiers, post-apocalyptic survivors, and various other roles throughout the season.

The casting team is seeking individuals of all ages and ethnicities who are local to the Boston area to portray walkers, soldiers, post-apocalyptic survivors, and various other extra roles throughout the season. Specifically, they are in need of athletes and individuals with military or law enforcement backgrounds to depict soldiers. Additionally, they are looking for individuals with weathered faces to portray survivors in the apocalypse, as well as individuals who are very thin, tall, and have flexible/available schedules to portray walkers.
