Will Steven Yeun Return to TWD?

TWD is now on its 11th and final season, putting the long-running series to a close. So, will fans see Steven Yeun reprise his role in the series or a spinoff?

By the looks of it, the answer is no.

The actor himself refused the possibility of returning to the franchise after his character’s death.

While promoting his new movie Nope, he told Conan O’Brien on Conan Needs a Friend, via Comicbook, that fans asked him if he were killed off or intentionally left the series.

“Complicated,” he said. "Sometimes, you just accept what it is and you go with it. There's no tension behind it."

Glenn suffered the same fate in the series’ source material, Robert Kirkman’s comic book with the same title, so he had no complaints.

"You're like, 'OK.' ... I'm not gonna go kicking and screaming," he continued.
