  • The Walking Dead Carl's letter to Rick

Following the surprise report on Tuesday that Lincoln, who stars as Rick Grimes, will leave during the upcoming ninth season, more details have begun to emerge about about how that exit might play out. Collider is reporting a rumor that when Lincoln departs, Reedus will step up and be the show's new leading man. Finally! He's been the star of AMC's The Walking Dead for eight years, but Andrew Lincoln will not return for a tenth season.

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

Like Lincoln, both had been with the show since its first season.

The Walking Dead is not a safe place for any of its characters - aside from a few core cast members, anyone has been fair game for a sudden exit, either through zombie or human means. Rick, too, is still alive and well (well, alive at least) in the comics, so Lincoln's departure will represent the biggest branching-off from Kirkman's original storylines to date. The show lost one of its mainstays last season in Chandler Riggs' Carl. Reedus, who has a good relationship with AMC, also has another television series on the network called 'Ride with Norman Reedus'. It's going to be a very different show with characters handling very different issues, challenges and threats than we've seen before. The other is Melissa McBride, who plays Carol.

Stevens' Boston Celtics lost Game 6 of the Eastern Conference Finals to the Cleveland Cavaliers 109-99 on Friday night. The King will now compete for the title for the eighth straight year as he continues his dominance in the east.

The ninth season also marks the first year of a new showrunner for the series in writer and executive producer Angela Kang. In fact, he lives well beyond the events the show will likely adapt next season. Marvel has already green lit a sequel to Black Panther. Thu, April 26, 2018 The Walking Dead season 9: What we know about the new series?

While it might go against the nihilistic ethos of the comics, wouldn't it be better for the series to end on a high?

Season nine is now in production.
