Will Tyreese appear in The Walking Dead finale?

The Wire’s Chad Coleman was spotted on the Woodbury set…


Robert Kirkman, the creator of The Walking Dead comic book series and Executive Producer of the TV show, has confirmed to EW that a popular character will be making an appearance soon…

“A big deal fan-favorite from the comic book is introduced into the show in [episode 8], so be on the lookout for that.”

Word is that The Wire‘s Chad Coleman will be playing the role of the former NFL linebacker, who was introduced in issue #7 along with his daughter, Julie.

In the comics he had romantic relationships with both Carol and Michonne and became Rick’s go-to-guy (a position currently filled by Daryl).

We’ll find out whether it’s Tyreese or someone else in the mid-season finale…

The Walking Dead is currently airing on Fridays at 10pm on FX in the UK.
