Collider have reported that Andrew Lincoln, better known as Rick Grimes in The Walking Dead, will be walking away from the show after Season 9. It's going to be a very different show with characters handling very different issues, challenges and threats than we've seen before.

The Walking Dead is one of the most popular shows on television right now; and with the concept combined with a passionate fanbase, the show could continue for another decade.

AMC declined to comment on the report.

Like Lincoln, both had been with the show since its first season. With Reedus also working for AMC for Ride with Norman Reedus, the guy has earned a serious pay bump. And it seems that over the course of eight seasons of the AMC series, we've seen plenty of characters meet their end, but Rick Grimes has managed to survive relatively unharmed.

Previously, it was thought that Lauren Cohen, who plays Maggie Rhee, would be leaving the series to star as the lead in ABC's Whiskey Cavalier.

Scientists suggest someone is secretly making banned ozone-depleting chemical
The team said the emissions were most likely due to new, unreported production from an unidentified source in East Asia. Availability of alternatives to CFC-11 makes it hard to understand why there is still a market for the chemical.

These past couple seasons have been brutal for the series, and this past season saw the departure of Chandler Riggs, who played Karl in the show.

Another insider revealed that Norman Reedus, who stars as Daryl Dixon, negotiated a $20 million paycheck to stay on the hit series.

The ninth season of The Walking Dead is due to premiere in the United States in October. Melissa McBride has also signed on for season nine. Lead characters can always be killed off and AMC shouldn't be afraid to do it.

Lincoln will only appear in "half-a-dozen" episodes next season, according to the outlet, which could mean that Rick Grimes will be gone by the season nine midseason finale.

Quite what has sparked this decision was not disclosed, though Lincoln has been with the show since it began in 2010, and obviously it's a big commitment for him.
