UPDATE: It's still possible a major death has already been filmed (it's a pretty safe bet that more deaths are coming at some point in Season 5, see the show title) but TWD Enthusiasts's sources
said it’s not Glenn. As they wrote, "We have information from our own reliable source on the ground in Georgia stating this rumor is 100% NOT TRUE. Our insider, who is familiar with the filming schedule, confirmed that Glenn has not been killed off at this point in filming."
Maybe this whole thing is just misdirection, since The Powers That Be must know by now that fans are spreading rumors online and they'd like to be able to control the message in some way. There's another rumor floating around that Bob gets Dale's death from the comics, but let's not all jump on board with that one either. These are all rumors at this point, on all sides from all sources. Long story short: No one knows anything for sure. Fun stuff!
This is not good.
The Walking Dead Season 5 is currently filming in Georgia and The Spoiling Dead Fans has been updating anxious fans with set details. Unfortunately, things just took a scary turn.
As they posted today (May 28):
“RUMOR: we have heard from multiple sources about a possible death. Word is the death of Glenn was filmed yesterday. It's possible it could be someone else, but multiple sources stated Glenn. Reports are the set was locked down and everyone was told the cast would not be coming out.”
Glenn Rhee (Steven Yeun). Can you imagine? Poor Maggie Greene (Lauren Cohan). Poor us!
The site said it was currently still just a rumor and they were working on getting more information. Adding possible credence to the rumor: Around 1:30 p.m. on Tuesday, May 27, Alanna Masterson (Tara) tweeted, "When someone great is gone." As Spoiling Dead later updated, “Steven reportedly left set at 2 or right around then. Alanna's tweet was at 1:28. It's said that Steven was hugging production members and shaking everyone's hand while leaving.”
Ugh. Michael Rooker (Merle Dixon) was also in Griffin, GA and went out to dinner with at least Norman Reedus (Daryl Dixon). He may have just been visiting, but it’s possible it was a “death dinner."
