The news that Andrew Lincoln would be leaving The Walking Dead in its ninth season caused a real commotion among the legion of fans of the AMC series. More than two years have passed, and the figure of Rick Grimes is still elongated and remembered. And his withdrawal was not due to the usual “creative differences” or something similar, it was to have more time to devote to his family and children.
But shortly after, another of the actors, Norman Reedus who plays Daryl Dixon, revealed in April of last year that Andrew had confessed to regret his decision because the series, in its ninth season, was at a peak and really exciting, with the plot of the Whisperers. Some statements that seem to be confirmed now after the virtual reunion, last weekend, of a good part of the interpreters of The Walking Dead and that had the objective of raising funds for the candidates for the Georgia Senate.
“I love her guys. And by that I mean the connection we have had with this land, the place, the people,” Lincoln explained according to the statements collected by ComicBook. “Arthur, my 10-year-old son, right now he wouldn’t let me have a job other than in Georgia (laughs). He misses it. He tells me:” Take me there! “. I went home for the children, and now them. They are hurting me, and I wish I had never left it. It was a terrible decision (laughs). ”
We do not know if he will ever return to the series, but we do know that he will return, he and his character. A trilogy centered around the character of Rick Grimes is underway, and filming for the first of the films could begin in spring 2021 in locations, naturally, in Georgia.
