Jon Bernthal's Shane returning for The Walking Dead season 9

Report: 'The Walking Dead' Marches Back to Hall H

The show's main character since its premiere, actor Andrew Lincoln's Frank Grimes will leave TWD this season.

Jon Bernthal's career has really blown up since leaving The Walking Dead.

Are you excited to see Bernthal back on the show?

According to TV Line, noted MVP and legendary badass Jon Bernthal has signed on to reprise his role of Shane Walsh on the next season of AMC's The Walking Dead.

Speculation that Bernthal might be back for another cameo began over the weekend when a fan spotted him in the background of an Instagram photo featuring Lincoln and co-star Norman Reedus. The two were at odds, though, after Shane had an affair with Rick's now-dead wife, Lori.

Though Shane was thoroughly killed during the episode, being stabbed by Rick and then shot by Carl once he reanimated as a zombie, the actor returned to the role in the third season as a hallucination of Rick's. Lincoln's character was eventually forced to kill his old pal to protect those he cared about, but his presence can still be felt on the show, as it's been all but confirmed that Shane is Judith's biological father. If Rick's about to die in season 9, either of these would make sense as a storytelling device to bring his journey full circle.

Based on the comic book series written by Robert Kirkman and published by Image Comics, The Walking Dead tells the story of the months and years that follow after a zombie apocalypse, and follows a group of survivors, led by police officer Rick Grimes, who travel in search of a safe and secure home.
