AMC accidently leaked some spoilers for season two of its show, The Walking Dead, about who dies in the shocking end of the finale on its Web site in an ad touting the DVD box set.
(WARNING: Spoiler alert, Spoilers ahead!)
Thanks to the snafu by AMC, we now know that Shane, played by Jon Bernthal will die.
In the AMC website ad for The Walking Dead Limited Edition Season 2 Blu-ray 4 Disc Set, due out for August priced at $99.99, a description for the bonus features gave away the death of Shane, reading, the making of the barn, an extended zombie gut scene, Shane's last episode...
Check out a screenshot of the spoiler here.
AMC addressed the leaked ending and said the goof was unauthorized, as Shane was alive as of the last episode.
The post on the AMC store was completely unauthorized. The matter is currently under investigation, a rep for AMC said in a statement.
The post was removed from the Web site late Thursday, Entertainment Weekly reported.
Last year at the winter TCA's, The Walking Dead producer Gale Anne Hurd alluded to the jaw-dropping finale plot to E! Online, which has roused much speculation for fans.
I have a feeling even with inveterate tweeters during episodes...there may be some significant periods of silence, because people may not be able to click on their keyboards, Hurd said.
The death of Shane spoiler also comes as no surprise to fans of Robert Kirkman's comic books, as he has a fanatical death, as he was killed off quite early in the series.
