  • ANDREW LINCOLN Leaving THE WALKING DEAD - Report

It's the end of an era for fans of The Walking Dead, as Andrew Lincoln is joining the list of stars leaving the AMC hit after Season 9.

While some Hollywood news outlets reported that the actors are still in negotiations, it's said that Lauren Cohan's renegotiation with AMC on a new deal have went south. Lauren Cohan recently asked for pay that was the equivalent to her male counterparts, which saw her hold out of resigning for The Walking Dead Season 9.

It appears Norman Reedus, who plays Crossbow bad boy Daryl Dixon, will be sticking around for awhile. The former main cast has been all but whittled down to just three (and soon maybe just two) of the original six or seven main protagonists we started with, while introducing an entire set of new characters, as well as a crossover character from the main Walking Dead series.

Andrew Lincoln will apparently be quitting "The Walking Dead" during the TV show's next season, according to Entertainment Weekly, confirming news first reported by Collider. Either way, this news serves as a big shock to fans of the longtime series. In addition, fans were completely stunned when the series made a decision to kill off the beloved character of Carl Grimes (Chandler Riggs), as it was always the thought that Carl would be endgame when and if Rick was ever killed off the show. The show also thought it was popular enough at the time to remain the sort of "event viewing" that made viewers tune in, but interest waned sharply after season 7 wrapped.

Personnel with the Tampa Fire Rescue , which documented the birth on Twitter , helped Elle to deliver her puppies . It was quite a scene to take in, too. "Especially in an airport", said Kelly Bonnazio, witness to the delivery.

To be fair, what happened to The Office may have no bearing on The Walking Dead.

Lincoln's departure is sure to take its toll on the many fans who were devastated by the loss of Riggs last season when his character, Carl, died. Take that how you will.

Given that The Walking Dead is now one of the highest rated shows in its 18-49 demographic, we're sure AMC will be able to foot the bill. Fear the Walking Deadairs Sundays at 9 pm ET on AMC.
