Andrew Lincoln Exiting ‘The Walking Dead’ Following Season Nine

Published

on

Andrew Lincoln has been living every actor’s dream of being part of a beloved series. The Walking Dead has been one of cable’s biggest shows with nearly 10 million viewers weekly. But even with an uber-successful series, actors tend to exit after a while in search of new opportunities. For Lincoln, that time has come.

A Tough Announcement

During San Diego Comic-Con, Andrew Lincoln revealed that he’s leaving the show. “I love this show. It means everything to me. I love the people who make this show,” he said in front of 7,000 fans inside Hall H. He then went on to explain that season nine will be his last. As expected, the entire theater was left feeling a little down.

Rumors Came To Life

In late May, rumors spread that Lincoln was slated to leave the show next year. Collider stated that his character, Rick Grimes, would only be seen in half of season nine. This is the same scenario Chandler Riggs faced this past season. Norman Reedus is rumored to be taking over the series’ leading spot with a $20 million deal.

A Bid Farewell

In the comic books, Rick Grimes is still alive and kicking as the longest survivor in the series. While many people expect him to die, there’s a slim chance he can walk away alive. Creator Robert Kirkman believes fans will appreciate how he exits the show. “He cares about the show deeply. He wants to do something special on the way out. We have something amazing planned,” he said during an IMDB interview.

Leaving Behind A Legacy

Since 2010, Andrew Lincoln has earned critical acclaim for his performance. The London native was given the Saturn Award for Best Actor on Television in 2015 and 2017. While his original contract with the show was for six years, he extended it for two more back in 2016. He earned upwards of $600,000 per episode for seasons seven and eight.

A Much Deserved Rest

If you’re looking to follow Lincoln’s next move, you might have to wait a while. Currently, his IMDB page has no future projects set for the actor. With so much time spent away from his wife and kids, he might simply take a break and enjoy the extra free time with his family.
