We’ve missed him for almost a season but in season 3 he’s back. At Image Expo earlier this month, Robert Kirkman teased that “Merle will be seen again”. Now it’s been official confirmation from Michael Rooker himself. He will return for season 3 of The Walking Dead. Rooker didn’t give us any details but mention that he lost 20 lbs for the role.
Season 3 begins shooting in May and will have 16 episodes.
