Beware zombies, a certain NFL star is gonna slay you all.

People have been getting killed off left and right during this season of The Walking Dead. Now, according to Robert Kirkman, we can expect a new character that is a fan favorite from the comic series to make their debut in live action.


Robert Kirkman sat down with the people over at Entertainment Weekly to talk about AMC's hit Zombie show The Walking Dead. During the chat Krikman revealed that major things are in store for the upcoming Fall finale. One of the major things is that you can expect is a new character to be revealed. Not only is it a new character, but it's a fan favorite from the comic series. "There’s a new character added. A big deal fan favorite from the comic book is introduced into the show in this episode, so be on the lookout for that," explained Kirkman. EW speculates that the character in question is none other than Tyreese. While this has not been confirmed there is some substantial evidence to back this up.

Tyreese was professional football player before the Zombie outbreak. In the comics he comes to the survivors after they have just lost Shane, and are in desperate need of some physical help. With the Kirkamn teasing that the character is a fan favorite it would be no shock that it could turn out to be Tyreese. Fans have been asking for some time when we might see him. Actor Chad Coleman (The Wire) has been spotted on the Atlanta set here recently, with no mention of what his role might be. Speculation has it that Coleman has been tasked with bringing Tyreese to life.

Keep in mind Tyreese is NOT confirmed. It just seems like right now it is a high likely hood that the character will be him. You can catch The Walking Dead which stars Andrew Lincon, Chandler Riggs, Norman Reedus, Lori Holden, Melissa McBride, Lauren Cohan, Danai Gurira, and David Morrissey, Sundays at 9P.M. on AMC.

Oh ... Guess Oscar's going then. Shame cos it looked like they were going to integrate him a bit. Suppose they'll do that to kill him off.
