Walking Dead Fans React to Andrew Lincoln's Impending Exit

No Comments

Throughout the past eight years, The Walking Dead has had its ups and downs, pleasing and disappointing fans by turns. We can’t say that it’s been a smooth ride, and apparently it’s about to get rougher due to the impending departure of Andrew Lincoln, who plays Rick Grimes.

Along with a couple of other characters, Grimes has been front and center on The Walking Dead since the series opened on AMC. So hardcore fans weren’t happy to hear that he’ll be phased out early in the series’ upcoming ninth season.

According to Comic Book , AMC plans to ditch Andrew Lincoln and Lauren Cohan (Maggie Greene) during Season 9. Cohan will reportedly appear in just the first six episodes. We don’t know how long Lincoln will continue to appear.

But it’s obvious that fans aren’t thrilled with the news. Viewership is bound to reach a new low, even after the latest episode’s dismal ratings, which were the show’s lowest since 2010.

Fan reaction to the most recent developments speaks for itself:





Comic Book also reported that AMC is in negotiation with Norman Reedus to move into the starring spot on the show. Fan-favorite Reedus has played main character Daryl Dixon since the show began, but fans don’t necessarily agree that he should take on the lead role:
