The three join Alexander Skarsgård, James Marsden, Amber Heard, Odessa Young, Jovan Adepo, Owen Teague, Henry Zaga, Brad William Henke, Whoopi Goldberg, Daniel Sunjata, and Nat Wolff who will all star in the CBS All Access adaptation of the classic post-apocalyptic novel. 

TVLine reports that McNamara will play Julie Lawry, a small-town girl with a wild side who has a run-in with Lloyd (Wolff) in Las Vegas; Bailey will play Teddy Weizak, a superflu survivor and member of the body crew, alongside Harold (Teague); and Linklater will play Dr. Ellis, a military colonel and infectious disease specialist who dreams of being the hero who stops the superflu.

Production is currently underway in Vancouver.
