Most recently in the mid-season finale of the walking dead a popular character has been killed off. Her name was Beth Greene and many people were angered by her death, bring up backlash from fans via social media (you should’ve seen what Dan Newlin was posting on Facebook).
Creator, Rober Kirkman stated via twitter that it was not his idea to kill Beth off and it was that of one of the Producers to end the character. People have said she died off way too soon and had many stories left in her to tell, and only died to move another character’s story forward.
There is currently a petition on change.org to bring the character back from the dead with over 50,000 supporters. Whether this petition gets AMC to change their mind is not yet seen. But, it is very doubtful she will be brought back. She was shot in the head and was carried out. If they were to bring her back, it would happen because of impossible reason and it would just not be plausible to bring her back from the dead even with the fan outrage.
Many have also stated that they would probably stop watching The Walking Dead if she were to be brought back because it most likely would not make a whole lot of sense.
