On the finale of The Walking Dead our favorite characters were lined up for Negan’s demented game of Eeny-Meeny-Miny-Moe. It’s well known that in the comics that Negan bashes Glenn’s skull in, but it’s been hinted that on the show someone else may die in his place. Fans have been spinning theories since, but now casting news has come that may shed light on Glenn’s fate on series.

Yuen will also star in Voltron: Legendary Defender, an animated series, as the character Keith. Voltron will debut on Netflix exclusively on June 10th.


This news doesn’t mean that Yeun is destined to die in the season 7 premiere of The Walking Dead. But it does make us wonder if he will have time to continue his role as Glenn. What do you think ?
