Jon Bernthal‘s career has really taken off since his Walking Dead days, but the actor isn’t against staying true to his roots. Bernthal will return for The Walking Dead season 9, just as his former co-star Andrew Lincoln exits the show. Warning: spoilers for previous seasons of The Walking Dead ahead. Despite the huge hinderance of being dead, Jon Bernthal’s character, Shane Walsh, is returning to The Walking Dead. THR reports that Bernthal is coming back for season 9 of AMC’s never-ending zombie show, just as star Andrew Lincoln is exiting. Shane was a main character in the first two seasons of the series – he was the former partner of Lincoln’s Rick Grimes, and became an antagonist on the series after the zombie outbreak. Shane and Rick had a lot of bad blood, primarily due to Shane having an affair (and fathering a child with) Rick’s wife, Lori. Shane died in season 2, and then returned as a zombie.

x The Walking Dead looks to be losing two of its longest running stars in the upcoming ninth season. Namely, Lauren Cohan’s moving on as Maggie Rhee after seven and a bit years on the show and so is Rick Grimes himself, Andrew Lincoln, who’s been the face of the hit AMC drama for the entirety of its run. But with these fan favorites on their way out, could a character we haven’t seen for a long while be coming back to soften the blow? It looks possible, as Jon Bernthal was spotted near The Walking Dead set in Senoia, Georgia recently. A fan shared a snap they took of their family with Lincoln and Norman Reedus on social media and happened to capture Bernthal in the background. If you think it isn’t clear enough to make out The Punisher star, the user confirms it by name-checking his character in her caption, which reads: “Right after I took the food photo they walked in!!!!! (Shane,Rick,Daryl).” Could Shane Be … [Read more...] about Could Shane Be Returning For The Walking Dead Season 9?
x Going by the original comic books from creator Robert Kirkman, fans think they know what’s set to happen when The Walking Dead returns for its ninth season this fall. As season 8 wrapped up the “All-Out War” arc, with Negan and his Saviors defeated, it’s likely that the new run will borrow from the source material and feature a time jump of some kind. The latest evidence that supports this theory comes from a baseball cap that’s been handed out to the crew of the hit AMC zombie drama. As shared on The Walking Dead‘s Instagram account, the interesting part of the headgear comes in the form of a message from Angela Kang, who recently took over as showrunner from Scott Gimple. It reads: “Welcome to Season 9. Here’s to a great year ahead and ‘A New Beginning.’” See for yourself below… Another Clue Suggests The Walking Dead Season 9's In For A Time Jump 1 of 2 Click to skip MORE FROM THE … [Read more...] about Another Clue Suggests The Walking Dead Season 9’s In For A Time Jump
x The Walking Dead fans were understandably concerned a few months back year when it seemed that Lauren Cohan was at risk of leaving the hit AMC series due to a pay dispute with the network. It sounded like things had been resolved when the actress eventually signed up for season 9, but the situation was complicated again recently as Cohan’s new show, crime dramedy Whiskey Cavalier for ABC, has been ordered to series. So, what effect will this have on Cohan’s future with TWD? Well, it seems that the actress, who’s been with the zombie drama since season 2, is currently only free for the first half of the upcoming run. According to TVLine, Cohan will indeed return as Maggie and is set to appear in six out of the first eight episodes of season 9. Beyond that, however, it’s unclear how involved she’ll be. From what we understand, if AMC wants her to stick around, there may need to be some … [Read more...] about Don’t Expect To See Much Of Maggie In The Walking Dead Season 9
