Andrew Lincoln Leaving 'The Walking Dead' After Season 9

Rick sick

There are now no exact details about how Lincoln will exit the show but THR reports that it will be "similar" to co-star Lauren Cohan's departure.

Lauren Cohan, who plays Maggie Rhee, is set to only take part 'in six episodes from the eight-episode fall half-season of TWD, ' reported Deadline earlier this month. After all, that's the only possible exit for any character of Walking Dead.

The expected departure of The Walking Dead star Andrew Lincoln from the hit AMC drama apparently will be gradual.

Big news for fans of The Walking Dead.

The Hollywood Reporter states that Norman, 49, "is in the midst of negotiating a rich new deal that will pay him more than $20 million", according to sources.

Speaking about the end of his character and the show as a whole, Lincoln previously said: "T$3 here's certainly an endgame in my head". The other is Melissa McBride, who plays Carol. Characters will leave, new ones will replace them, and the show will continue in service of a greater overall arc. In fact, Fear is a much better show at this point, but with Rick sparing Negan, there is great potential for the original show to reshape its dramatic arch.

However, the character was allowed to live as Rick attempted to show him mercy. Gurira recently stole every scene she was in as Okoye in Black Panther, so her upping sticks and leaving The Walking Dead in favour of the Marvel gravy train isn't an altogether unlikely proposition. We obviously don't yet know for sure if he'll be killed off but this is The Walking Dead, and it's pretty easy to kill people off.

Andrew previously spoke about leaving the show, hinting that he was well up for giving fans an end to Rick's story.

Lincoln, Reedus, Lauren Cohan, and Danai Gurira are all set to return for series nine, which is now in production.
