Best known for playing fan-favorites 'Tyreese' in the wildly popular Golden Globe nominated series "The Walking Dead" and "Dennis 'Cutty' Wise" in Emmy® award nominated HBO drama series "The Wire," critically-acclaimed television, film and stage actor Chad L. Coleman will return to Syfy's space drama "The Expanse" in which he will reprise his role as former Marine 'Col. Frederick Lucius Johnson' alongside Thomas Jane and Steven Strait. Season 2 premieres Wednesday, February 1st on Syfy Channel.

Nothing has slowed down for Coleman since departing "The Walking Dead." Coleman recently had a recurring role on season 5 of CW's hit series "Arrow" as the newest villain 'Tobias Church,' an imposing gangster looking to unite the various criminal enterprises in Star City under his own singular command. Coleman also appeared in "Freakish," from Awesomeness TV, the new series geared toward Gen Z viewers which also starred Leo Howard and Adam Hicks. The series follows a group of students at a small town high school who have to fight for survival after predatory mutant freaks take over. Coleman also appeared in History's remake of the 1977 miniseries ROOTS in which he played the role of 'Mingo,' a stern, no-nonsense slave who works under 'Tom Lea' (Jonathan Rhys Meyers') and mentor of 'Chicken George.'
Besides his breakout, iconic roles on "The Walking Dead" and "The Wire," Coleman is also widely recognized for his comedic turn as "Gary Miller," the ex-husband of "Nikki Miller" (Kate Finnerman) and father of manipulative daughter "Mackenzie" (Aisha Dee) in the FOX Television comedy "I Hate My Teenage Daughter" and for his recurring role as 'Z' in comedy "It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia." Additional TV and film projects include "The Good Wife,' Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles," THE GREEN HORNET and HORRIBLE BOSSES, to name a few.
In his rare free time, Coleman recently ventured in the world of fashion! Coleman is the founder/co-owner of his new clothing line "A God Amongst" which currently holds a shirt from "The Walking Dead" series featuring Coleman's character 'Tyreese' and beanies. They are currently taking orders via their website:
Born and raised in Richmond, Virginia, Coleman spent 4 years serving in the Army as a video cameraman stationed at the Pentagon in DC. After gaining much experience, Coleman made his way to New York where he starred in a number of Broadway projects including the critically acclaimed revival of August Wilson's play Joe Turner's Come and Gone on Broadway alongside Meryl Streep. Growing up in the foster care system, Coleman devotes time to working with children in similar circumstances and underprivileged communities. As a proud father, he is also the national celebrity spokesperson for "Date with Dad," an annual event aimed at fostering the all-important father-daughter relationship, hosted by Camp Diva, a Richmond-based program of Girls For A Change, a non-profit providing opportunities for teen girls to prepare themselves for their passage into womanhood.
