At end of Season 4 of "The Walking Dead," Rick (Andrew Lincoln), Daryl (Norman Reedus), Glenn (Steven Yeun) and company are all trapped in a train car at Terminus -- prisoners of a group of people who look to be cannibals.

But even before the Internet has stopped buzzing about the finale, it was announced today by The Hollywood Reporter that Alanna Masterson (Tara), Christian Serratos (Rosita) and Andrew J. West (Gareth) have been upgraded to series regulars for the upcoming fifth season.

Tara, of course, has been the woman, who driven by guilt, helped Glenn get reunited with Maggie (Lauren Cohan) in the days since the Governor (David Morrissey) attacked the prison, causing the once safe haven to become overrun by zombies and taking the life of the beloved Hershel (Scott Wilson).

Rosita is attached to Abraham's (Michael Culitz) entourage. Their goal has been intent on getting Eugene (Josh McDermitt) to Washington, D.C. to help stop the plague.

And Andrew was introduced on the series finale as Gareth, the leader of the people living at Terminus.

"Seeing Gareth and Rick and the people of Terminus and our survivors go head-to-head is going to be interesting," exec producer/comics creator Robert Kirkman told THR. "There is a very deep, dark and storied history to Terminus and how these people came to be that will be revealed in season five."
