The Walking Dead showrunner Scott Gimple has suggested that fans could see Glenn return sometime in the future.

Much in the same way that last week's season finale included a flashback featuring fallen character Abraham (Michael Cudlitz) - who, alongside Glenn, got bludgeoned to death by Negan in the season seven opener - Gimple has teased Glenn's return as a vision or in flashbacks as “possible.”

TVLine reports that Gimple's response to the question of whether fans would see Glenn again was as follows:

The Walking Dead: All out war begins

“Pretty good, actually. As Maggie gets closer to giving birth, it’s “certainly possible. I’d be silly to say it isn’t.”  

Still, it's looking like if that were the case, it'd be far into the show's future - namely when Maggie gives birth to their baby (should the character still be alive at that stage).

“She might not be that close. Things have been moving pretty quickly, but not a lot of time has passed.”

Following last week's season finale (our review of which you can read here), Gimple has teased the AMC zombie series' eighth season, sparking fears for one character in particular.

Rick Grimes actor Andrew Lincoln also revealed how the forthcoming season's opening episode - which will be the 100th special - is due to begin

The Walking Dead returns in the US and UK this October.
