Andrew Lincoln Is Leaving The Walking Dead After Season 9

The Walking Dead Carl's letter to Rick

ANDREW LINCOLN Leaving THE WALKING DEAD - Report

One thing we can tell you with absolute certainty is that Andrew Lincoln's time at the forefront of The Walking Dead is coming to an end, what with only six episodes of Rick Grimes (and Maggie Rhee!) remaining.

Rick Grimes is a central character in The Walking Dead universe, for both the TV series and the comic books on which it is based.

The movie sold $14.1 million in Thursday preview ticket sales , which is a record for the Thursday before Memorial Day Weekend. Not even Hollis tried to sugarcoat Solo's global performance so far, which includes a paltry $10.1 million launch in China .

According to Collider - there has been no confirmation from United States network AMC just yet - Andrew Lincoln, the man who plays Rick Grimes, will only appear in around six episodes of the next, ninth, season. Andrew Lincoln has every right to want to hang up his cowboy hat once and for all, and TWD is going to continue finding a way to craft new stories and introduce new characters. Cohan's contract negotiations with AMC stalled, leading her instead to sign on to the new ABC series Whiskey Cavalier. After the death of Carl Grimes and the announcement that Angela Kang would take over as the showrunner for season 9 there was a lot of uncertainty about whether or not Lauren Cohan would return for season 9. Rick, too, is still alive and well (well, alive at least) in the comics, so Lincoln's departure will represent the biggest branching-off from Kirkman's original storylines to date. While the show has lost its fair share of stars over the past eight seasons, saying goodbye to the main heartbeat of the series would be its toughest challenge yet. There is no word of how the character is going to leave, but no matter what, it's going to make a huge impact on the series. Ratings have increased for Fear the Walking Dead, which was retooled into a superior creative series with a Western theme that is working brilliantly for the spinoff.

However, the character was allowed to live as Rick attempted to show him mercy. The show will reset with Reedus' Daryl Dixon in the spotlight even more.
