The Walking Dead is still on the air? Yes. Yes, it is. Apparently. As the show enters its 9th season, there’s HUGE casting news! Andrew Lincoln, who plays Rick Grimes…you know, the star of the show, will be leaving during the course of this season only appearing in six of the season 9’s episodes!
With Lincoln leaving, that leads a starring role open. Will they bring in someone new? Will there be a new leader of the OG crew? Who would take it? My guess, fan favorite (and original character specifically created for the show) Daryl. Apparently, Norman Reedus (Daryl) is in talks for a $20 million pay check in order to stick with the show. Wow!!!
However, Andrew Lincoln isn’t the only cast member leaving this season. Lauren Cohan’s, who plays Maggie, is also leaving after six episodes this season. Not only was she being paid less than her male co-stars, but she’s already in a new show for ABC and the combination of those things have led to her departure.
Is anybody still watching this? Will you be watching this? Sound off in the comments.
