I love the people who make this show.

Andrew Lincoln addressed the elephant in the room at the start of The Walking Dead SDCC panel. By that I mean they're walker bait.

That said, Andrew was quick to confirm that he will still be leaving be the show this season. The ninth season will jump forward in time following the events of the group's All Out War with Negan and his Saviors and will highlight a changing infrastructure in the physical world as Rick works to build the more peaceful utopia that his late son, Carl, envisioned.

"This will be my last season playing the part of Rick Grimes. This has been the most extraordinary, amazing, useful experience of my career".

It had previously been reported that Lincoln's character, former police officer and long-lasting survivor Rick Grimes, would be leaving the show. The trailer is out and god forbid one character/actor sure looks like he's being written out of the script. People seem to really love Daryl, and since actor Norman Reedus will be paid more than $20 million to become the main character on The Walking Dead, it seems like a few fans' dreams will come true...at least until they decide to shockingly kill him off, too.

During the panel presentation at San Diego Comic-Con, AMC released the trailer for second half of Season 4 of Fear the Walking Dead. "I suppose what I wanted to say is that my relationship with Mr. Grimes is far from over and a sort of large part of me will always be a machete-wielding, Stetson-wearing, zombie-slaying sheriff's deputy from London, England".
