Norman Reedus Signs Huge Walking Dead Contract

Andrew Lincoln star of

However, it has now been reported that Lincoln will leave the show after the next season, which premieres later this year.

Sources say Lincoln will be phased out in season nine in a fashion similar to co-star Lauren Cohan (Maggie), who will film only six episodes of the series. AMC has not commented whether or not season 9 will be the final season with the news of Lincoln and Cohen's possible departure.

Andrew Lincoln may be walking off The Walking Dead.

Additionally, the outlet stated that AMC had expected to announce this exit ahead of his final episodes, though it's now unclear which episodes they will be (though word has it that he has roughly only six or so episodes left to his name). The future of Cohan, who first appeared on the show in Season 2, was up in the air for a time but she told Entertainment Weekly at CinemaCon in April that she will return for Season 9.

According to the same report, AMC is looking into placing Daryl Dixon (Norman Reedus) in the lead role.

The immediate outcome is that Norman Reedus's Daryl Dixon will nearly certainly step into Rick's still-warm cowboy boots as the show's primary focus, a theory backed up by reports that the actor is in negotiations for a $20m pay packet. With Lincoln now taking his lead, that's another big, long-lasting character who is meeting his end. Original cast member Chandler Riggs was written out of the series in the middle of Season 8, with his character Carl Grimes opting to commit suicide rather than transform into a walker. She also has an upcoming ABC series, Whiskey Cavalier.

And with the prospect of no more Rick show runners over at The Walking Dead are doing their best to shore things up, or it would seem that way at least. Co-star Norman Reedus is now negotiating a new deal that will reportedly pay him around $20 million per season to become the new face of the series.

While Lincoln's departure is the subject of reports, it could be that the actor wishes to pursue new projects after working on The Walking Dead for almost a decade.
