The Walking Dead has cast a pair of key roles for season two.

First, Scott Wilson will come on board as Hershel Greene. The character plays a prominent role in the graphic novel series and owns a farm that has been ravaged by zombies. Rick and company will spend a lot of time there.

"He's a veterinarian with a great sense of humanity and a very unique take on the Walkers," Gale Anne Hurd tells TV Guide.

Lauren Cohan (The Vampire Diaries, Supernatural, Chuck) will also portray a member of the Greene family, Hershel's daughter Maggie.

Hurd describes her as a "survivor" and a "romantic interest" for Glenn.

The Walking Dead returns to AMC this fall.
