The Walking Dead’s Chandler Riggs Says Shooting Carl’s Death Was Tough

Of the many, many ways that The Walking Dead TV show has differed from the comic books, the death of Carl Grimes will undoubtedly go down as one of the biggest. Rick’s son has been a constant presence in the source material and it was truly a shock when Chandler Riggs’ character was revealed to have been munched on by a walker at the end of the midseason finale, ahead of his eventual passing in the following episode.

Executive producer Scott M. Gimple recently acknowledged the split from canon (Grimes Jr. is still alive in Robert Kirkman’s source material), too, and explained that the writers intentionally crafted a version of events that would surprise even those familiar with The Walking Dead comics.

Former Walking Dead Star Chandler Riggs Had Already Alluded To Andrew Lincoln’s Exit

In peace, sons bury their fathers. In war, fathers bury their sons. And on The Walking Dead, fathers follow their sons out through the exit door.

So while Chandler Riggs bid adieu to AMC’s undead flagship earlier this year, it’s since been confirmed that his on-screen father, Andrew Lincoln (Aka Rick Grimes), is about to follow suit, meaning season 9 will herald the actor’s last appearance on The Walking Dead.

Much like Lauren Cohan, he’ll reportedly be phased out of the series, appearing in only six episodes of season 9 so that Norman Reedus (Daryl Dixon) can take over as leading man. He’s on the verge of a huge $20 million pay packet, too, though he’s yet to sign along the dotted line.

For Andrew Lincoln, though, his exit has been long foretold, given Chandler Riggs had previously alluded to the actor’s departure while promoting his

Season 9 Of The Walking Dead Will Steer AMC’s Survivors Toward Civilization

The Walking Dead season 9 will see our ragtag group of heroes attempt to salvage some semblance of civilization now that the brutal war between the Saviors and Ahk forces is done and dusted.

At least, that’s according to former showrunner Scott M. Gimple, who is about to hand over the torch to Angela Kang, a long-time writer and producer of The Walking Dead who has since been elected showrunner of season 9. But more on that later.

During a recent interview with TV Line (h/t ComicBook.com), Gimple offered up one or two shreds of intel relating to The Walking Dead‘s ninth season, including how Rick and the gang will react to the shocking events of season 8’s all-consuming finale.

I think what’s exciting about next season is, just by virtue of the narrative, the story evolves a great deal. From the things said in the finale,

The Walking Dead Boss Teases Possible Return For Dwight

The Walking Dead season 8 finale bucked the trend of the infamously bloodthirsty zombie drama and ended up not killing any major characters. That was the whole point, after all, as it was about Rick deciding to live up to Carl’s final wish and let his mercy prevail over his wrath. That said, one person who looked to be written out of the series was former-Savior-turned-ally Dwight, as played by Austin Amelio.

If you recall, a repentant Dwight left his life in Daryl’s hands. Despite their antagonistic history, Daryl let his old enemy live and encouraged him to find his wife, Sherry. The last time we saw him, Dwight had discovered a note from her at their house, suggesting that he was going to reunite with her eventually.

So, is this the conclusion of Dwight’s story in The Walking Dead? It was pretty open-ended, after all. TV Line

Walking Dead Movie May Happen, But Do Fans Care at This Point?
Could we still see The Walking Dead movie grace the big screen at some point? While nobody is announcing any plans for one just yet, the possibility still exists. Scott M. Gimple, former showrunner of the hit AMC series who is now overseeing the entire Walking Dead universe for the network, has said in the past that he's sure it will happen one day. While we still don't know when that day might be, Gimple isn't ruling it out.

The Walking Dead season 8 finale recently concluded the All Out War story arc on that series, while Fear The Walking Dead just debuted to record ratings. Even though the flagship series has seen ratings decline in recent years, there still seems to be a lot of gas left in the tank and AMC wants to milk it for all it's worth. In a recent interview following the season 8 finale, Scott M.
