According to Collider - there has been no confirmation from U.S. network AMC just yet - Andrew Lincoln, the man who plays Rick Grimes, will only appear in around six episodes of the next, ninth, season.

Collider shared that Lincoln's Rick will apparently only be featured in "half-a-dozen episodes" during Season 9 and Norman Reedus would then take on the starring role. Cohan is confirmed to be back for Season 9 of The Walking Dead, though it'll only be for six episodes as well; her ABC pilot Whiskey Cavalier has been ordered to series, keeping her plenty busy.

The battle between Rick's survivors and the Saviors, led by Negan (Jeffrey Dean Morgan), has been the major story of the two most recent seasons, but it was resolved in April's Season 8 finale.

But still the news that Andrew Lincoln is leaving The Walking Dead brought a lot of mixed reactions from fans.

AMC declined to comment on Lincoln's departure.

Collider broke the sad news exclusively, revealing that the lead actor would depart the series for good during its upcoming season, which is now filming. After Lincoln goes, Reedus and Melissa McBride will be the only actors from Season 1 remaining.


Ana - andrew lincoln/rick grimes is the most important person on the walking dead. idc what you say, there's no show without him.

Lincoln's character has been the show's protagonist since the first episode.

Can The Walking Deadsurvive without Andrew Lincoln's Rick Grimes?

For now, all that's left to do is wait and see what kind of disgusting end the show might have in store for Rick Grime.

Ideally, The Walking Dead will do what it should have done years ago and break away from the source material entirely. 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. Scott Gimple has been announced to be the Chief Content Officer of The Walking Dead universe at AMC.
