While talking to ComicBook.com, Riggs opened up about how the one thing he won’t miss about making The Walking Dead is losing beloved cast members when they’re written out of the series whenever it needs to give the audience a jolt in the arm. Here’s what he had to say:
“I won’t miss having to go through anymore death dinners and watching other characters, any other cast
While talking with EW, the actor teased what’s to come in the second half of Twd‘s eighth season. As well as hinting at more scenes with co-stars Danai Gurira and Norman Reedus, Lincoln also named his highlight of the run as the scene where he got to act out a violent attack with Jeffery Dean Morgan’s villain. Specifically, he revealed that Rick will go after Negan with an ax!
The last episode that aired before the winter break left viewers with their jaws on the ground when the final moments revealed that Carl Grimes (Chandler Riggs) had fallen prey to a walker bite, meaning the fan favorite character’s time on the show is almost up. And while we’ve already heard from his various co-stars (Andrew Lincoln, Norman Reedus) in regards to how they feel about the actor departing the hit series, Riggs himself has now opened up about it.
Speaking to ComicBook.com in a recent interview, he noted that while he jokes about being bitter over the whole situation, he doesn’t actually have any hard feelings towards AMC or The Walking Dead‘s writers.
“I joke about it, but I’m not really bitter about it.

A Flash-Forward – Season 8 opened with a mysterious vision from Rick (Andrew Lincoln). The scene appeared to be a dream sequence, similar to Rick’s previous vision of heaven. The idyllic scene of family life was later counterbalanced in the episode with what most believe is a flash-forward. Rick kneels below a stained glass window, tears streaming from his face, and mutters, “My mercy prevails over my wrath.” Whatever that means. Greg Nicotero
That very question was presented to Robert Kirkman, series creator of The Walking Dead, during the recent Walker Stalker Cruise panel (via ComicBook.com), where he admitted that he’s yet to give Negan a last name.
Flanked by Jeffrey Dean Morgan and Norman Reedus (Daryl Dixon), Kirkman didn’t divulge too much about how he came up with the name ‘Negan’ in the first place, but he did clarify that it’s a forename, not a surname. It’s for this reason that Jeffrey Dean Morgan went on to compare his on-screen maniac to Madonna and Cher:
While they’ve clashed in the past – remember that tense exchange from season 1? – The Walking Dead‘s time-honored bromance is at risk of coming apart at the seams, given Norman Reedus and Andrew Lincoln’s respective characters continue to dispute the Saviors and how best to handle Negan’s army of goons.
It’s a feud that came to a head back in November, when Daryl lashed out at Rick and sent The Walking Dead fanbase into a tizzy as a result. And at least based on Norman Reedus’ latest comments to Entertainment Weekly, that sibling-like strife is far from over.
Shooting a stranger in the face to get that goal, he thinks it’s worth it. I think that’s some of that dirty fighting street knowledge that he’s throwing around. Rick wants his people to survive,
Although a later report claimed that talks with AMC had resumed, Variety is reporting that Cohan has now joined the ABC drama pilot Whiskey Cavalier, leaving her continued involvement with the zombie drama uncertain.
Created by Dave Hemingson, Whiskey Cavalier is “a high-octane hour-long action dramedy that follows the adventures of tough but tender FBI super agent Will Chase (Scott Foley) who, following an emotional break-up, is assigned to work with badass CIA operative Francesca “Frankie” Trowbridge (Cohan). Together, they lead an inter-agency team of flawed, funny, heroic spies who periodically save the world (and each other) while navigating the rocky roads of friendship, romance and office politics.”
Set to kick things off with the super-sized “Honor” on February 25th, the back-end of The Walking Dead is all about tying up loose ends, according to Norman Reedus, who spoke candidly to Entertainment Weekly ahead of the show’s return this coming weekend.
And don’t worry, it’s totally free of spoilers, as Reedus paints in broad strokes when discussing season 8’s long-anticipated climax:
It’s all resolution. It’s all the tying up of these ends of what’s laid out in front of us in all these different directions. There’s a lot of closure coming in the back eight, which is great. There’s been all
Now, ahead of its return this Sunday, AMC has released a new promo that takes an emotional look back at Carl’s journey across the show’s eight seasons so far. Seen up above, the video lets us relive his growth from a young gutsy kid looking out for his friends to a fighter who stands up for those in need. Like he says to his dad, “if you care, you do something.”
The character was one of the very few members of the original cast who had managed to last
Let’s be honest: With all this talk of the Charmed reboot — which many fans, and even one of the original show’s stars, are actively trying to vanquish — it’s hard not to get nostalgic about the show that started it all. And when you look back at its 178 episodes, you start to notice things you didn’t before, including how many famous faces crossed paths with the Halliwells.
From Amy Adams and Ashley Tisdale to Jon Hamm and Norman Reedus, the Charmed Ones’ version of San
Take Daryl Dixon, as an example. Coming out of season 7, many felt that the series stalwart had been stripped down to the bare bones – figuratively speaking, of course – at the behest of Negan and his sinister Saviors. But Norman Reedus’ fan-favorite came back swinging.
And from that gruelling torture came a fascinating, hate-hate dynamic between Daryl and his sworn enemy, Dwight. It’s seemingly Norman Reedus’ favorite story arc from The Walking Dead season 8, and viewers can readily expect it to be further explored when the hit zombie drama returns later this month.
That’s my favorite storyline going forward. They’re both right. One just knows how to deal with it a little better. The other one is scared. Daryl’s not scared. Dwight’s scared and he makes decisions based on fear, but he’s trying to do the right thing.
It’s no surprise, then, that his loss is hitting his co-stars very hard. While talking to The Huffington Post, Danai Gurira – who plays Rick’s girlfriend and Carl’s surrogate mother figure, Michonne – opened up about her feelings on the storyline. She said that she’s in tune with her character over this as she’s both “absolutely devastated” by Carl’s/Riggs’ exit in front of and behind the camera.
The actress took to Instagram to share a peek inside her charming living room, which got a little springtime spruce thanks to a pretty gift from a pal.
“When you get home and your friend left you a promise of spring to come,” Kruger wrote alongside the post.

Apparently, Cohan – who first joined the series in its sexond season – was said to have been seeking parity with her male co-stars Andrew Lincoln and Norman Reedus, but was only offer a modest pay increase for a long-term contract, which was rejected.
This is of course standard tactics during contract renegotiations, but Deadline’s report claims that AMC did not follow up the rejection with an improved offer, and there has been no further talks between the two parties. With the actress contractually free to explore other opportunities, it is said that she is in hot demand, and has been taking pilot meetings with multiple networks.
Apparently, the actress’ contract is up at the end of season 8 and she’s now looking for a pay increase, one which will put her in the same ballpark as Andrew Lincoln and Norman Reedus. AMC has refused, however, and will only agree to a minor raise. From what we understand, Cohan isn’t interested in that and is still fighting for a higher salary. And though she may very well get it,
As relayed to us by ComicBook.com, the following snippet is as bizarre and awkward as you’d expect, as Reedus stumbles upon the supposed sexual tension brewing between Daryl on his close ally, Rick Grimes (Andrew Lincoln). It’s all in good fun, and if nothing else, this Page Six video offers some welcome respite from talk of Carl Grimes and his imminent demise – not to mention the forthcoming batch of episodes that will see Rick and his zombie-slaying confidants take one final stand against Negan.
But first, some fan fiction:
Back in the realm of reality, Reedus was none too pleased about the decision to bump off Carl Grimes
