Michael Rooker Back for The Walking Dead Season Three

With the final episode of Season Two of "The Walking Dead" hitting AMC tomorrow and Season Three going before cameras for 16 episodes, one question has remained on everyone's minds - Where's Daryl's brother Merle (Michael Rooker)?

During the WonderCon Lollipop Chainsaw panel, Rooker (who lends his voice to the game) announced the Merle will indeed be back for the show's third season. While details remained on the scant side of the fence, the actor did reveal that he lost twenty pounds for the role. Sounds as if Merle hasn't been doing so well. One thing's for sure... when he comes back, he's gonna be pissed and it's going to be really interesting to see how fan favorite Daryl (Norman Reedus) reacts to seeing his newly discovered brother.

Stay tuned for more as it comes.
