It’s been a rough week for fans of “The Walking Dead” as it seems the show has lost a fan favorite.
During Sunday’s episode Glenn was pushed into a herd of walkers and it looked like his body had been ripped apart. Glenn looked dead, but there’s a portion of the fan base that just isn’t convinced. Luckily for the fans, we won’t have to wait very long for the shocking death to be addressed.
Showrunner Scott Gimple confirmed to The Hollywood Reporter that the death will be addressed in the first half of the season.
“We saw what we saw onscreen. I had an innocuous statement on Talking Dead that said it better than I can say it here. [His “death” will be addressed] this half-season. I’d say sooner rather than later. We’re ripping through this season pretty damn quick. People will know pretty damn quick. Even getting into the thematics, it tips it one way or the other.” Gimple said.
He did however confirm that we will see Glenn again in some way shape or form in the first half of the season.
“We will see Glenn, some version of Glenn or parts of Glenn, again, either in flashback or in the current timeline. We will complete the story. That’s the important thing. That’s what people are feeling, and it will be this half of the season.” Gimple added.
“The Walking Dead” airs Sunday’s on AMC at 9pm EST.
