Andrew Lincoln to Leave 'Walking Dead' After Season 9 (Report)

Andrew Lincoln is reportedly leaving The Walking Dead after the upcoming ninth season.

The 44-year-old actor will only appear in six episodes next season, according to Collider. Lauren Cohan, who recently renegotiated her contract for a bigger payday, also is only appearing in six episodes.

The outlet is also reporting that Norman Reedus will be bumped to leading man status in season nine and he will receive “substantial compensation” to stay on board.

Production on season nine began in March and we have a bunch of set photos that you can check out!

    My baby : nooooooo! There’s no The Walking Dead without Rick! Just cancel the show already because I can guarantee that the show will lose tremendous amount of views if Andy is out! AND I’m not even speaking about Danai inevitably not re-signing on for the tenth season … Andy is out, she’s out : not because AMC wouldn’t try to re-negotiate with her but simply because there’s no Rick without Michonne and vice versa! This show once was EVERYTHING! It’s very sad to see it hitting rock bottom like this and loosing its own heart = ANDY f*cking LINCOLN that is.

    If this is true then the best thing to do will be to end it or it will likely become the Negan show again and no one wants that apart from the fan girls. It’s been going downhill for the last few seasons and we were promised a return to form this year and while it was a slight improvement, it’s nowhere near the standard it was at the beginning.
