The Walking Dead“ showrunner Angela Kang confirmed several familiar faces will return to „The Walking Dead“ on season nine. 

„There’s some rumors going around,“ said Kang Saturday night at New York Comic Con’s panel for the AMC series. „We want to confirm that Jon Bernthal, who played Shane, he will come back this season. We also have the wonderful Scott Wilson as Hershel, and our wonderful Sonequa Martin-Green [as Sasha].“

Back in June, Bernthal was spotted on set of „The Walking Dead,“ spurring reports he was returning for Andrew Lincoln’s departure this season

Bernthal, Wilson, and Martin-Green were all killed off the zombie drama during different seasons of the show. Lincoln’s character, Rick Grimes, actually killed his best friend Shane during season two.

Kang didn’t offer how the three will return, but „The Walking Dead“ creator Robert Kirkman had a fun suggestion. 

„Ghosts!“ he yelled to laughter from the crowd.

It will be a bittersweet reunion. 

Shortly after Kang confirmed the actors‘ appearances on season nine, it was announced Wilson has died at age 76.

The official „Walking Dead“ social account confirmed the news.
