Andrew Lincoln confirms he will leave 'The Walking Dead' this season

Walking Dead

The trailer debuted at "The Walking Dead's" Comic-Con panel following the "Fear the Walking Dead" presentation, which featured its own trailer for the upcoming season. During the show's panel at San Diego Comic-Con, Lincoln took the opportunity to confirm his exit and to share some thoughts on the matter.

"It has been the most extraordinary, handsome experience of my career, largely because of you guys". "This will be my last season on the show".

This might be the end of Andrew's time on the show, which he has been part of since the very first season, however, this doesn't seem to be the end of Rick.

After the shocking mid-season finale in June, in which series mainstay Madison sacrificed herself to save her children and others, fans have been forced to wait more is in store for the characters of Fear the Walking Dead. The former is comics-accurate, as the original Walking Dead series jumped ahead following the massive war we just saw adapted into the TV show's eighth season.

There was a pretty huge elephant in the room during The Walking Dead's Comic-Con panel, which is why Andrew Lincoln chose to kick off the day by confirming the news that he'd be leaving the show after Season 9. "My relationship with Mr Grimes is far from over". Fear the Walking Dead will return for the second half of season four, consisting of eight episodes, on Sunday, August 12 at 9:00 p.m. ET/PT.

The series stars Andrew Lincoln, Norman Reedus, Lauren Cohan, Danai Gurira, Melissa McBride, Lennie James, Alanna Masterson, Josh McDermitt, Christian Serratos, Seth Gilliam, Ross Marquand, Austin Amelio, Tom Payne, Xander Berkeley, Khary Payton, and Jeffrey Dean Morgan.
