UPDATE: Steven Yeun (Glenn) is also in for the Chicago event!

You don’t need to wait for San Diego’s summer Comic Con to meet and greet stars of The Walking Dead. Events are held across the country all year long, and one cool convention is coming up: Walker Stalker Con Chicago 2014 will be held from March 14-16 in Chicago. That should be close to the Season 4 finale, so maybe the cast will share interesting spoilers.

Two names were recently added to the lineup: Producer/director/special effects guru Greg Nicotero and Southland alum Michael Cudlitz, who plays Abraham. At this point, we haven’t even seen Abraham on TV, but he’s a major character from the comic books who should be arriving soon (maybe in Episode 10).

Sadly, it was also announced that, due to a new professional commitment, Scott Wilson (Hershel Greene) won’t be at the Chicago event. No spaghetti Tuesdays on Wednesdays.

Here's the current list of TWD cast/crew scheduled to attend: Lauren Cohan (Maggie Greene), Larry Gilliard Jr. (Bob Stookey), Sonequa Martin-Green (Sasha), IronE Singleton (T-Dog), Madison Lintz (Sophia), Jose Pablo Cantillo (Martinez), Daniel Thomas May (Allen), Lew Temple (Axel), Melissa Hutchison (Clementine, video game), Eulyn Womble (costume/wardrobe), Jay Bonansinga (co-wrote the Governor novels), Addy Miller (little zombie girl from pilot), Michael Cudlitz (Abraham) and Greg Nicotero (producer/special effects).

Head to the site for guest updates and ticket information. And visit the Daily Dead’s roundup for a full list of upcoming TWD cast and convention appearances. There are so many, and maybe a few in your own area.

The Walking Dead Season 4 returns with Episode 9 on Sunday, February 9 at 9 p.m. ET on AMC.
