The season 7 premiere of The Walking Dead reportedly opens with a major death — and cast filming has opened up ideas as to who the victim may be.

‘The Walking Dead’ Filming Reveals Season 7 Premiere Death

Insiders haven’t spotted Michael Cudlitz on set as Abraham since the first day of filming. There were unconfirmed sightings of the actor, but it was reportedly determined that the person in question was a fan cosplaying as his character.

Abraham is killed by a crossbow in the Walking Dead comics, adding to the speculation that he might be the one who dies in the premiere.

Steven Yeun, who plays Glenn, also hasn’t been seen on set since the premiere filming. Photos of him and Norman Reedus helping fans at a nearby car accident were posted online, but the incident took place right as season 7 began.

Glenn dies by the hands of Lucille in the comics, putting him on the list of possible premiere victims.

Josh McDermitt as Eugene has not been confirmed for a sighting since the premiere. In the season 6 finale Eugene tried to solo pilot Alexandria’s RV to distract Negan from the rest of the group, but, he was captured and returned to his family. Before his return, he bid a tearful goodbye to Abraham.

The Walking Dead production crew has been careful about hiding character fates during season 7 filming. AMC network has reportedly threatened litigation should a death be confirmed early.

The Walking Dead returns to AMC in October.
