Looks like The Walking Dead fans have something big to look forward to if a report from a Entertainment Weekly is to be believed, as series veteran and the long deceased Shane Walsh actor Jon Bernthal is set to reprise his iconic role sometime in Season 9 - reuniting with his best friend Rick Grimes (played by Andrew Lincoln) and the other remaining survivors who knew him that are still around in the show.
While Shane died in Season 2, that didn’t stop Bernthal from reprising the role as a hallucination that Rick sees (and shoots) during Season 3. With Andrew Lincoln looking to exit the show after Season 9, this will be the perfect reunion and swan song between the two pals who started as the first characters to be seen together when the hit AMC zombie show started back in 2010.

The Walking Dead returns to AMC with Season 9 this October.
