This news comes less than a day after his character was first introduced on "The Walking Dead." Gareth seems to be the ringleader of the maybe-cannibals at Terminus, who are the most deadly threat the main characters have had to face since the Governor.
The Hollywood Reporter has the news about West's promotion, and also reveals that Alanna Masterson (Tara) and Christian Serratos (Rosita) have been upgraded to series regulars as well. Michael Cudlitz and Josh McDermitt, who play Rosita's companions Abraham and Eugene, joined as regulars during Season 4 and will remain so next season.
