Nearly unbelievable on a show where nearly no one is said to be safe, the man who has played Rick Grimes since the very beginning of the series based on Robert Kirkman's comics could be gone by the end of the upcoming ninth season, I hear. Lauren Cohan, who plays Maggie, is only contracted to appear in six episodes in Season 9, which is now in production. The nature of Lincoln's exit was not reported. Rick's son, Carl Grimes, was killed off last season in a shocking twist that surprised even actor Chandler Riggs.

Andrew Lincoln may be walking off The Walking Dead.

It's further said that AMC is now offering Norman Reedus a substantial amount to stay with the series and take over as the show's lead.

She went from showing up as a series regular to starring in just six episodes of the next season, the same amount Andrew has reportedly signed up for.

The news caps off months of upheaval for The Walking Dead. And with a Brave New World on the horizon for Season Nine, this news has many fans wondering how the series can continue without Rick Grimes.

But Lincoln is not the only one leaving the show.

CBR has reached out to AMC for comment.

It looks like it's finally happening: The Walking Dead is getting a bit too long in the tooth for some of its main cast members.

The 44-year-old abandoned his movie career after joining The Walking Dead, a small screen adaptation of Robert Kirkman's hit comic book series, and he is reportedly turning his focus to films after he wraps up the remaining episodes on the zombie show. Contracts for both Black Panther star Danai Gurira, who plays the character Michonne, and Lauren Cohan, who plays Maggie Rhee, end soon as well. While no official announcement has been made yet, the series is expected to return in October.
