With all the news about people exiting the world of The Walking Dead, including both Rick and Maggie, it sounds like the producers wanted to lighten the shock by bringing back a familiar face. Interestingly, that face happens to belong to a survivor who ended up undead and with a bullet between his eyes. That’s right, AMC has just announced that Punisher actor, Jon Bernthal is coming home to The Walking Dead.

We know that they aren’t going to retcon Shane’s death. It would piss off more people than they can afford to lose right now. The best bet here is that he’ll either be showing up in the form of flashbacks or as the “voice” in Rick’s head as Andrew Lincoln moves towards his eventual exit at some point in the season.

Who knows, maybe his ghost is just stopping by to say hi to his daughter…
