  • The Walking Dead is coming to VR. Eek!  Skybound Entertainment

Comic-Con San Diego is now taking place, and The Walking Dead comic and show creator Robert Kirkman discussed the implications of Lincoln leaving the show.

The comic book creator's comments are the first from an executive behind the show confirming the departure rumours, and Kirkman insists fans will be delighted with the way Rick's character leaves, despite disappointment over his exit.

When asked by IMDb if Season 9 would see the end of Rick's tenure, he said, "It's looking that way".

"It does make the differences between the comic and the show more pronounced", Kirkman said. This is a human being. Add The Walking Dead as an interest to stay up to date on the latest The Walking Dead news, video, and analysis from ABC News.

"He cares about the fans", Robert continued. He wants to do something special on the way out. We have something unbelievable planned.


Reports surfaced in May that Lincoln's co-star Norman Reedus will stay on and have his character, Daryl Dixon, take on a leading role in Lincoln's absence. There is also a brief glance at Morgan, who made the move from The Walking Dead to Fear The Walking Dead this season. We'll have to wait and see.

In addition to the news, a first teaser for the new season has popped up online, though we can expect a longer version after the show's Comic-Con panel.

"We're going to see our women really step up", says Kang, "and we're gonna show a lot of stories about leadership with Maggie, with Michonne, with Carol".

Players who pre-order on PS4 and Xbox One will also receive immediate access to The Walking Dead: The Telltale Series Collection, which gathers all 19 existing episodes of the award-winning series into a single package.
