Joining James in the new series and pictures are new cast members Garret Dillahunt, Jenna Elfman and Maggie Grace.
The four new stars will all meet during in the series after solo traveller Morgan comes across survivalist Althea (Grace) in the wilderness.
According to series producer Ian Goldberg, Althea is one to watch as she is “uniquely qualified to survive” and even “thrive” under these bleak conditions.
“When we meet her, we’ll find she has, in many ways, picked up right where she left off before the world collapsed.
“She has a number of impressive weapons in her arsenal, including a curiosity and understanding of people that often gives her a tactical advantage.
“It’s never something for nothing with Althea. She has a greater purpose that she is constantly working toward; one which Strand takes a particular interest in.”
Morgan and Althea will pair up and befriend the enigmatic John (Dillahunt), described as “a man of fascinating contradictions”.
“[John] loves people but has spent a great deal of time on his own. He’s a gentle soul — an innocent in many ways — but is no stranger to violence. He can be soft-spoken and disarmingly funny all at once.”
Elsewhere, series regular Madison (Kim Dickens) will discover the loner Naomi (Elfman).
Showrunner Andrew Chambliss said: “Naomi’s a capable survivor we’ll meet living on her own early on in the season.
“She’ll have her guard up as she crosses paths with Madison and her family, and — as we’ll learn over the course of the season — she’ll have a very good reason for keeping people at a distance.
“Even so, she’ll end up developing some connections that surprise her, including a bond with Alicia.”
