When we began our journey with The Walking Dead, we weren't prepared for just how much some of the show's deaths would affect us.

It's only natural, then, to daydream every once in a while about who we'd want the show to bring back one day. (Carl, obviously.)

And now the comic's creator Robert Kirkman has revealed who he'd most like to see resurrected in the series, meaning we're one step closer to our daydreams coming true. Kind of.

While appearing on the weird but mostly wonderful Walker Stalker Cruise 2018, Kirkman said that despite what fans may want, Glenn is definitely staying dead.

Tyreese Williams (played by Chad Coleman), on the other hand, is way more likely to make a comeback. If he can get over the whole permanence of death thing, that is.

"I always loved Tyreese," Kirkman told fans while revealing that Sasha's ex-NFL star brother would be his first choice for a comeback.

"I miss the character a lot in the comics, and it was great getting to write him again for the show, and you know, I thought he was a cool guy.

"I liked how gentle he was, and how ill-equipped for the world he was, and what a struggle it was for him to bash people's heads in with that hammer," he added.

If Ty turned out to be unavailable, fortunately there's someone else that Kirkman would be interested in resurrecting – the one and only Carl Grimes.

That's a choice that would probably go down just as well with the show's stars as it would with audiences, after Danai Gurira (Michonne) recently admitted that Chandler Riggs' upcoming departure from The Walking Dead made her feel "a little depressed".

"I got a little depressed for a while. Straight up," she explained. "You're in the story. You're in it, and you're also in a family. It was hard."

The Walking Dead is due to return for the second half of its eighth season on Sunday, February 25 in the US on AMC. It'll be back on Monday, February 26 in the UK on FOX UK and NOW TV.
