New characters are about to surface and stir up more drama for the survivors in the aftermath of the prison attack. On Saturday, February 8 Wetpaint Entertainment posted spoilers for "Inmates," the upcoming tenth episode of the fourth season of "The Walking Dead," which will include at least three new characters debuting on the show.
The three characters are Rosita Espinosa, Abraham Ford, and Eugene Porter who are all characters from the comic book series by Robert Kirkman. Rosita will be portrayed by actress Christian Serratos who most recently appeared in the "Twilight" films and is a young Hispanic woman who is around Beth Greene's age. She was cast as a series regular and most likely will appear in season five.
Porter will be portrayed by actor Josh McDermitt, who is known for appearing on the television sitcom "Retired at 35," which ran for two seasons. McDermitt is also an accomplished comedian and finished as a semi-finalist on the fourth season of "Last Comic Standing," which aired on Comedy Central. The character is also a series regular that will appear in at least four episodes including the season finale. He is believed to have knowledge of a safe zone, which could be The Sanctuary which was teased earlier in season four on the car radio.

Ford is a major character in the comic books who becomes Rick's right hand guy, a position currently held by Daryl Dixon (Norman Reedus).
