BREAKING NEWS and SPOILERS AHEAD for ‘The Walking Dead’: Dave Trumbore is reporting on Collider.com that Season 9 of AMC’s hit drama series The Walking Dead, Andrew Lincoln aka Rick Grimes will be walking away from the show. There’s no news on how he will be leaving the show or possibly being killed off. Another actor and character who could be leaving after Season 9 is Lauren Cohan’s Maggie. She is confirmed to be back for Season 9 of The Walking Dead, but it hasn’t been revealed for how many episodes and if it will actually be her last yet. She has received quite a lot of attention this past pilot season and had a tense contract renegotiation with the show this offseason so it’s certainly possible that both of these talented actors might be walking from the show. Norman Reedus’s Daryl is sticking around however and has reportedly been compensated to do so. No word yet on the status of Danai Gurira’s Michonne. Given her reception for her work on ‘Black Panther’ she could be moving into more of a lead role as well.
John Rocha and Dorian Parks sit down to give their reactions to this breaking news and if they think these are the right moves by these actors and by AMC. They also look at what might have led to this decision by Lincoln and possibly Cohan. They also explore what they’d like to see from a Darryl and Michonne led The Walking Dead and if it could bring the ratings back up to the match the ones from the show’s heyday.
