'The Walking Dead' EP on how show will handle Andrew Lincoln departure

On Wednesday, in an interview with Entertainment Weekly, executive producer Angela Kang says that the goal of Season 9 "was to just pay homage" to Rick Grimes, "somebody that people have loved watching".

"I have two young children, and I live in a different country, and they become less portable as they get older", Lincoln said.

About filming his final episodes, which have already wrapped, he said, "Completing the show was like releasing air finally".

The Walking Dead stars Andrew Lincoln, Norman Reedus, Lauren Cohan, Danai Gurira, Melissa McBride, Alanna Masterson, Christian Serratos, Josh McDermitt, Seth Gilliam, Ross Marquand, Austin Nichols, Jeffrey Dean Morgan, Tom Payne, Austin Amelio, Xander Berkeley, Pollyanna McIntosh, Katelyn Nacon, and Lauren Ridloff.


While talking with EW Radio, Lincoln stated, "Let me clarify something".

The actor sat down with the outlet to discuss his impending Walking Dead exit, revealing that spending six months of the year away from his wife and children while shooting the series in Georgia started to take a toll on him.

But for The Walking Dead to continue to be successful, it doesn't just need to send off Rick Grimes with proper pomp and circumstance; it also needs to shift the protagonist perspective. "It was time for me to come home". And it was very satisfying the last two episodes in particular. "The world is deteriorating", continued Lincoln. "So there is an enormous pressure on this group". "Rick Grimes has got a long game, and he knows that unless we trade, unless we look after each community, it's going to fall apart". The upcoming ninth season of the show will be his last. "It's a fragile peace".
