According to 'The Walking Dead' last night's opening credits, Steven Yeun is no longer an official cast member of the show.

It marked the first time that Yeun, who is an original character, did not appear in the opening credits, since the start of the show.

In episode 3 of the AMC show, his character Glenn Rhee was killed off. His unexpected death set the Twittersphere into mourning.

The Walking Dead play Glenn was dragged into a sea of walkers by Nicholas' dead body, and eventually torn to shreds in episode 3 of season 6.


The showrunner  Scott Gimple confirmed to TVLine that Gleen's character will be back on show  in some form.

“In some way, we will see Glenn,” he said, “some version of Glenn or parts of Glenn again, either in flashback or current story, to help complete the story.”

Sunday's 90-minute-episode of the show which was titled 'Here’s Not Here,' failed to address the death of the much loved character.

"Glenn's "death" will be addressed this half-season. I'd say sooner rather than later. We're ripping through this season pretty damn quick. People will know pretty damn quick," Gimple also said to THR.

AMC recently renewed 'The Walking Dead' for a seventh season.
