Yeun spoke to Comicbook.com about his duration on the show and said that he likes finishing things. “Because I rarely finish anything,” Yeun said.

“There is something incredible about finishing the book and dying. So, that’s it for me in The Walking Dead.”

He added that the end of his role on the show has been super satisfying for him. He said that even though he will probably be remembered for that role, he can seal it at a point and be done with it.

Khary Payton (Ezekiel) recently spoke about Alpha’s threat to the Hilltop residents. He says that he is glad that this is a wolf in sheep’s clothing part of The Walking Dead. And he even spared a secret detail from the show. He revealed that there was a wig on Samantha Morton’s head but we could never see it because she would always wear the hat.

Now that Ezekiel is on the front line of the show, he might be in line to die in the upcoming episodes.

The tenth season of The Walking Dead will premiere on Fox and AMC in October 2019.
