Andrew Lincoln Reveals Original Plan For His Exit From The Walking Dead

  • The Walking Dead season 9

"The story of Rick will go on in films". Have we seen the last of Maggie (Lauren Cohan)?

Having last appeared in the show at the close of season four, Hershel - who was killed by The Governor in the 2013 episode "Too Far Gone" - appeared in a vision Rick had after passing out from a nasty wound. Whether that change is for better or worse (or the same) remains to be seen, but a newly revealed trailer teases out the next few episodes to come in the now airing ninth season. I'll say that this group is dealing with the scariest threats they've ever had and it's completely different than anything we've ever done on the show. One infamous example would be the episode "Thank You", where fans saw Glenn supposedly ripped apart by walkers, only to learn later that he'd survived by crawling under a dumpster.

Speaking on the after-show Talking Dead, Andrew said: "It's not the beginning of the end, it's the end of the beginning. The show and the fandom will not be the same without you at the heart of it".

Secondly, unless The Walking Dead has taken a page from the book of George Romero's 2005 film Land of the Dead and the Walkers are starting to be more like that movie's zombie hero Big Daddy, I'm going to take the suggestion that the Walkers are "evolving" rather loosely. Season 9 already had a great narrative backdrop established with its uneasy post-war detente, and I fear a shift to a whole new cast of characters and stories might feel jarring, especially coming straight after this homage to seasons past.

"It's not the beginning of the end, it's the end of the beginning", Lincoln said in a statement. "After I stop feeling sad, of course". Lincoln was showered with love and praises leading up to his character's departure; Maggie got nothing (except a disappointing resolution to her quest for vengeance against Negan).

Production on the movies is expected to begin as early as 2019.

With Lincoln wanting to spend more time with his family, the decision to branch out into feature films was a win-win for both the actor and AMC, who was looking for other ways to expand the franchise.

Speaking before his final episode aired, he said: "No, I'm still, I'm - I've just been on set and I regret the decision terribly".

Things didn't look good for him at the end of episode four, as he found himself impaled on a metal pole after being thrown from his horse. "I wake up, the phone rings, he wants to talk about everything on the way to work".
