Dead man Walking. Andrew Lincoln leaving hit show

People don't just leave The Walking Dead with their lives intact, except for a few rare exceptions, and already people are expecting the worst for Rick.

The news caps off months of upheaval for The Walking Dead.

In fact, it's reported that the show's focal character will only appear in six episodes of the new season.

The Walking Dead Season 9 is expected to premiere this fall. When writers are forced to change the narrative of a series because an actor leaves, the show suffers. Marvel has already green lit a sequel to Black Panther.

"It is being reported that Lincoln will be exiting the AMC series in its ninth season which is now in production", according to Comicbook, which confirmed the news from multiple independent sources on Tuesday.

However, Cohan, too, will reportedly only grace the show with her presence for a mere six episodes.

Having said that, Apple is offering features such as location sensing and advanced beamforming to take on the competition. Nevertheless, the new change is likely to convince other multimedia device manufacturers to integrate the new protocol.

Another insider revealed that Norman Reedus, who stars as Daryl Dixon, negotiated a $20 million paycheck to stay on the hit series. A similar shift occurred in the February 25 Season 8 midseason return of TWD earlier this year when the Chandler Riggs' portrayed Carl Grimes died after being bitten by a walker. "I don't know but certainly I really think the fans and my character deserves an end point as some time in the future".

The Walking Dead season nine is in the works but according to sources, the Love Actually star will be exiting during the forthcoming run. It is not clear how Lincoln's character will make his exit. But there are lot of stories to tell within The Walking Dead universe so it's entirely possible that the show could continue in a different form.

Ultimately, this is simply how it goes-for a show as massively popular and lucrative for a stunning eight years, it's no surprise that it's slowly but surely coming to an end.
