Andrew Lincoln Leaving The Walking Dead

As if AMC’s The Walking Dead needed to give fans more reasons to not watch, Andrew Lincoln is leaving the show.

Lincoln who has starred as the series main protagonist, Rick Grimes, has been a mainstay since season one.

Lincoln isn’t the only actor who could be leaving the series. Contracts for both Black Panther star Danai Gurira, who plays the character Michonne, and Lauren Cohan, who plays Maggie Rhee, end soon as well. Cohan is scheduled to star in another TV series on ABC called Whiskey Cavalier.

It is being rumored AMC wants Norman Reedus’ character, Daryl, to be the new lead of the show.
