Dead man Walking. Andrew Lincoln leaving hit show

Rick sick

Cohan is said to be appearing in six episodes of season nine of The Walking Dead, before moving on to ABC pilot Whiskey Cavalier, according to Collider.

Rumors suggest "The Walking Dead" won't kill Rick Grimes, but rather leave the character's fate open when he leaves at some point during Season 9.

Fans of the show took to Twitter Tuesday night to express their disappointment.

Reedus is a hugely popular actor on TWD, and keeping him in the midst of losing the series' main star, Andrew Lincoln, is important for the show's continuity.

The Walking Dead returns in October on AMC.

This news comes as a big surprise considering Rick is still alive in the Robert Kirkman comics.

There's no way to hide this huge spoiler for the upcoming Walking Dead season, so let's get it out of the way: Rick Grimes dies. Cast moves on the series will also see Norman Reedus stay put under a new $20 million contract.

We're suddenly in fear for "The Walking Dead" for reasons totally unrelated to zombies.

However, the character was allowed to live as Rick attempted to show him mercy. Original cast member Chandler Riggs was written out of the series in the middle of Season 8, with his character Carl Grimes opting to commit suicide rather than transform into a walker. Melissa McBride (Carol) is still around, as is Norman Reedus (Daryl).

Show officials say they have "no comment" on characters' impending departures. Marvel has already green lit a sequel to Black Panther.

Everything is pretty unpredictable on The Walking Dead, but that totally means that at least he is safe for a while.

My best guess is a happy ending for Rick. Unlike in the past, AMC was slow to announce a season nine renewal as the series was negotiating a larger pact with now-former showrunner Scott M. Gimple.
