Andrew Lincoln Reveals Why He's Leaving 'The Walking Dead'

Back in May, we reported that Andrew Lincoln, who has led The Walking Dead for the past eight seasons, would be making his exit from the hit AMC series for its upcoming ninth season. Sure, the actor briefly noted at San Diego Comic-Con 2018 that it's simply "time for [him] to go home", but is that genuinely all that's going on?

In an interview with Entertainment Weekly, Lincoln and several other "TWD" cast members dished out some scoop about season nine. Lincoln is British, and being away from his family while he filmed The Walking Dead in Georgia for most of the year was getting to be too much.

On why he's leaving the show: "I have two young children, and I live in a different country, and they become less portable as they get older. It was that simple", the England-based actor explained.

He also confirmed that he's wrapped on Season 9, and that his last two episodes in particular were "very satisfying".

McDonald, 23, broke two of Murray's opening three service games and wrapped up the first set 6-3 inside 40 minutes. Both held serve until the ninth game, when McDonald sent a forehand wide to hand Murray the break and a 5-4 lead.

We asked new showrunner Angela Kang exactly that, and how the departure of Rick fits into the tapestry of season 9 (which premieres October 7 on AMC). "Rick Grimes has been somebody that people have loved watching, just loved this character's journey".

Knowing Rick's final episode is fast approaching, viewers are probably clutching their hearts like so much so much zombie guts.

The Walking Dead stars Andrew Lincoln, Norman Reedus, Lauren Cohan, Danai Gurira, Melissa McBride, Alanna Masterson, Christian Serratos, Josh McDermitt, Seth Gilliam, Ross Marquand, Austin Nichols, Jeffrey Dean Morgan, Tom Payne, Austin Amelio, Xander Berkeley, Pollyanna McIntosh, Katelyn Nacon, and Lauren Ridloff.
