  • Report: Andrew Lincoln to Leave The Walking Dead With Season 9

Collider is reporting that Lincoln, who has played series lead character Rick Grimes since the first episode in 2010, is preparing to depart the flagship AMC series during the course of its upcoming ninth season. And Lincoln, who plays Rick Grimes, may not be the only cast member to exit. AMC has not commented whether or not season 9 will be the final season with the news of Lincoln and Cohen's possible departure.

The move echoes a similar casting change in Season 8 when Chandler Riggs left the show after his character, Carl Grimes (Rick's son), succumbed to a zombie bite.

Lincoln's decision to leave comes as a major shock for the franchise, which ranks as one of the top dramas on all of television among total viewers and the advertiser-coveted adults 18-49 demographic.

The Walking Dead returns in October on AMC.

To fill the void in the show's leading man status, AMC are rumoured to be offering an improved financial offer to long-running series star Norman Reedus.

This goodbye for the CAA represented Lincoln follows co-star Lauren Cohan drastically cutting down her participation in the Angela Kang showrunner season for a stint on ABC's midseason replacement spy dramedy Whiskey Cavalier. The six episodes could be stretched out through all of season nine. Rick, Carl, and Maggie are all still alive in the comic book series that the show is based on.

Lincoln's exit might all be part of a bigger shake-up on the show, which has seen its ratings dwindle in the last two years.

Ultimately, this is simply how it goes-for a show as massively popular and lucrative for a stunning eight years, it's no surprise that it's slowly but surely coming to an end.
