By now it is well-known that AMC's six-part miniseries "The Walking Dead: Dead City" is going to feature two of the most recognized characters from the original flagship show in the universe of "The Walking Dead," those being the tenacious and loyal Maggie Rhee (Lauren Cohan), and the formerly bat-wielding baddie Negan (Jeffrey Dean Morgan). Because the show will take place in New York City — a setting we have yet to really experience in the zombie apocalypse — it will mostly feature new characters and, of course, new actors bringing this new story to life.
There's one individual who will be a familiar character played by a new face: Hershel Rhee, Maggie's son by her late husband Glenn (Steven Yeun). Previously played by Kien Michael Spiller, he has been recast with Logan Kim, most recognized for his role in 2021's "Ghostbusters: Afterlife."
Hershel isn't seen that much during the original run of "The Walking Dead," but when he's last seen in the series finale, he's about 10 years old. But "Dead City" will take place a few years after the events of the finale of "TWD." Cohan confirmed as much at the "Dead City" panel at WonderCon in March. Whether this was the reason that he was recast isn't quite clear, but Logan is notably older than the young Spiller.
