If reports are to be believed, the writing is definitely on the wall for The Walking Dead. The show has been hemorrhaging viewers for several seasons now, and today brings news that Andrew Lincoln, the most important character in the series, will be departing sometime during Season 9 (currently being filmed in Georgia).
Collider broke the news in an exclusive:
We’re hearing that, by the end of Season 9 of AMC’s hit drama series The Walking Dead, Rick Grimes himself will be walking away. That’s right TWD enthusiasts, Andrew Lincoln will be growling his way through the post-apocalyptic setting for just one more season before calling it quits. And while we won’t be spoiling just how the series’ founding character makes his exit, we do know that fans can only expect to see Lincoln in half-a-dozen episodes of the upcoming season.
It’s the beginning of the end, folks!
