Glenn has grown by leaps and bounds since season one of The Walking Dead. He's almost a totally different character. With the new season however, he may become a dead character. Alas poor Glenn, we knew you well.
There's a lot of speculation that Negan is coming and fans of the comic know that his arrival means death for Glenn. Death by baseball bat.
This may not be how things play out in the show, the series does not follow the comics in all respects but both Robert Kirkman, show creator, and Stephen Yuen, the actor who plays Glenn have addressed the possibility. Yuen wasn't forthcoming with exact details but did touch on the subject with The Wrap.
"If I go - that could happen."
Which may not seem like much but it's not squashing the possibility of it becoming a reality. We've seen Glenn escape death a number of times throughout the series and it's possible that luck is running out for him.
Then there was the not so funny "spoiler" that Kirkman dropped a few months ago alluding the arrival of Negan and the death of Glenn.
Every season someone that we're attached to dies. This isn't cliché, it's just the zombie apocalypse is hard. People die. A lot.
With the arrival of Morgan and the new players at Alexandria, Glen's character may have reached the end of his storyline which unfortunately doesn't mean ride into the sunset so much as it means zombie lunch.
The Walking Dead will return to AMC in October.
