In a new interview, producer Robert Kirkman confirms that Andrew Lincoln will leave The Walking Dead next season.
Andrew Lincoln has been stomping and smashing zombies for nearly a decade. It’s not much of a shock the actor might want to try something new or at the very least get away from Georgia for a while. Well, producer Robert Kirkman has finally spoken up on Andrew Lincoln’s departure and says that it’s time to say goodbye to Rick Grimes.
Speaking to IMDb, Kirkman says the exit will definitely make the differences between the comics and show more noticeable but it has to happen:
“It’s looking that way. It does make the differences between the comic and the show more pronounced, but at the end of the day, it’s all about Andrew Lincoln. This is a human being. This is someone I have known for almost a decade, somebody that I love. He’s been sweating in Georgia, away from his family, for so long.”
Kirkman also says that the exit will be worthwhile because Andrew Lincoln wants to give his fans something special for his grand finale:
“He cares about the fans,” Kirkman said about Lincoln. “He cares about the show deeply. He wants to do something special on the way out. We have something amazing planned. I wouldn’t want to spoil anything, but anybody who has been a fan of his journey, who loves Rick Grimes, who loves the world of The Walking Dead, you’re going to want to see what we do.”
The Walking Dead stars Andrew Lincoln, Norman Reedus, Lauren Cohan, Danai Gurira, Melissa McBride, Alanna Masterson, Christian Serratos, Josh McDermitt, Seth Gilliam, Ross Marquand, Austin Nichols, Jeffrey Dean Morgan, Tom Payne, Austin Amelio, Xander Berkeley, Pollyanna McIntosh, Katelyn Nacon, and Lauren Ridloff.
The Walking Dead will return next fall on AMC.
