At a press conference in Singapore, Andrew Lincoln and Norman Reedus shared some tidbits about the season’s upcoming return. Here is an excerpt from Yahoo’s coverage:
The show will go on – with or without him.
So says British actor Andrew Lincoln, who plays leading protagonist Sheriff Rick Grimes in the massively popular TV series The Walking Dead.
The 40-year-old believes his character’s death is bound to happen at some point – and that both he and the show would be okay with it.
“I’ve always maintained that if and when I die, which is an inevitability in the show… as long as it pushes the story on, I’ll go with it,” said the likeable British star at a media conference in Singapore on Monday.
Lincoln and fellow star Norman Reedus, who plays Daryl Dixon, were in town to promote the show – currently on a break midway through its fourth season – which has become a global phenomenon.
Part of the show’s secret sauce is its knack for killing off characters at crucial junctures – but Lincoln is hoping for Grimes to stick around a fair bit longer, and hinted that the second half of the season will provide answers as to why.

Yeah that’s fine. Final season fine, but fine. Same goes for Daryl.
I agree. If Rick dies in the show, I don’t think I would watch anymore, so it better be the last season lol
I Hope He Keeps Goin In The Show -,- Come On He My Favoriye Character In The Show
yeah mine to
This is Rick’s story…he’s the leader (although sometimes questionable)…if he got killed off, who would rise to take his place? Carl? Muuaaaaahahahaha! No, just no!
I’m just waiting to see who will be the next voice of reason…& Carol’s return…& all these other characters that you caught-up comic readers are talking about!!!
hahah to be honest, id like to see carl in the spotlight…however, he is NEVER where he should be…wheres carl? NOT IN THE HOUSE!!!! but me and yo have descussed ricks death….hmmm maybe we made it happen muahahahah
I get tired of screaming at the TV, “Carl, you need a BUTT CUTTIN’!!”
I can see Carl filling in the void left by Shane. At this point, that’s the only way I imagine Carl to be and probably the only way he could entertain me in the show.
I can’t think about Rick’s death….no…not right now…not anytime soon….don’t make me do it!! lol
i am a little confuzled……wait, do you mean that carl will try to kill rick? i think thats possible. now, in the comics, rick gets the phone call from lori about where its going to pick up in the show….maybe, since that already happened in the show, it wil be like, carl getting a call from judith….haha! or maybe sophia.
Na, I meant Carl’s attitude. Seems like he’ll act like Shane–reckless & wild. I don’t think Rick would be able to take him out like he did Shane.
okkkkk…….. but i would be SO mad if carl died. grrr if he does i stop watching….4 a little while….
I don’t too much care for Carl at the moment. If he was killed off any time soon, it would affect me like Lori’s death did–I’d sympathize with Rick.
yeah….but rick is so old….and carl is HOT!!!
That’s a new one on me! Guess I’m used to reading about Daryl. lol!
yeah, why do they only have “if daryl dies we riot” shirts (haha i have one…) why dont they say, “this is carl…..ermegerd how is itpossible to look like this????? dat be da hottest person ever” yes. i would buy that.
of course, there would be a picture of him on it…….
it wouldnt just say that!!!
Would you be happy to see him hook up with Lizzie? They’d make a fierce couple but would probably end up killing each other.
haha no! CHANDLER RIGGS IS MINE!!!! plus im auditioning for twd rather soon, and i would much preffer to be carls love interest…….
wouldnt it be funny if he fell in love with a zombie…..that would make it REALLY hard to kiss…
LOL! You’re a trip! I’m rooting for ya!! You get in on that show, holla back at us here! I’d love to just make it on the show as a walker. I’d be satisfied with one tiny little spot!
thanks…..like, ill be fighting zombies…than turn at the screen…”Just wanted to thank Bastet for rooting for me…. anwyway……”
ohhh i would love to be a walker that like saves someones life….i dont wanna feel guilty!!!!
If Darryl riots we die!
Rick just looks old cause he never shaves
cant believe they think of killing him, hes the main character. It would be nice to see Daryll on the top but it is be better if he keeps on leading-!
I like how nobody even read the comics. Firt of all, the comics are really further in the story and rick is still alive. Although,kirkmen said that he wanted to kill rick soon because he wanted carl to be the main character. In the comics carl is really badass so..
…so a person who enjoys the show doesn’t necessarily have to read the comics, and you are posting on the show section of this site. Also, the show, as we should all know by now, doesn’t have to line up with the comics. And for those of us who read, we may not be at the same point in the comics you are. I, for one, do read the comics but I have been pacing it with the point in the show; I have yet to reach that point where Carl becomes a badass.
agreed…though i absolutly adore carl, i have yet to qualify him as a (pardon my langueage….i wouldnt usually say this-) badass….
Yeah, he’s never actually directed stated that.
I really don’t want rick to die. Without him the show will not be the same. If he dies then carl might lose his mind and murder everyone.
Really you kill Hershel and now you talk about rick. We can only lose one awesome person per season. Its just to upsetting.
At my work everybody is caught up on the walking dead show.
When they are mean to me, I threaten to ruin all the deaths and stuff that has happened in the comics.
I am a jerk.
i dont care.
Lol! You’re lucky…there are only two people at my job that are fans & both LOVE spoilers (huh?)! They keep asking me questions about the comics (which I tell them they just need to read). The rest of them say, “Ew!” & “Oh no!” when I talk about the show.
ohmyghaaaadddd i know. at school, i talk about it ALL. THE. TIME. but almost all of my friends tell me they dont watch the show…….who dosent watch the walking dead….oh yeah, not eighth gradersss……..well except me, …
My 7th Grader LOVES the show…watches it over Cartoon Network ANY DAY!!!
hahah yessss tel your 7th grader that he/ she is awesome….. (my friend) “do u watch bubble guppies?” (yes, this has happened before.) me: “UMMM NOOO not unless one of them turns into a zombie….and joins twd…”
hahaha yay!!!! peeoooople be like “do u watch spongebob?” “HA NO! not unless he looks like chandler riggs! (CARL u fools!)
oh children of today (I SPEAK AS 1!) why, oh why do you watch mind numbing cartoons? why dont you watch zombies eat people? hahah oh my sense of humor……
The day after the season 4 finalie my boss was like..
“Did glenn die?”
I said i dont know not to spoil it.
Later that shift she was giving me shit about stacking some boxes in the wrong place.
I was like..
“Keep talking shit and ill tell you what REALLY HAPPENS TO GLENN!!!!”
In my opinion they won’t kill him before seson 6
am i wrong, or does rick need to shave and get a haircut….
I think all the barber shops are closed where Rick is
Michonne handed him a razor in the first episode of this season!
He’d look might funny if he did what Shane did!
True, but I’m not asking for him to go drastic, but if you have seen that adorable movie, love actually, he was SO sweet looking in that…..and in the first season, but he looks all wrong now!
Notice in one of the first episodes of this season, michonne hands Rick a razor, and comments on his beard! Why, Rick, can’t you listen to michonne? I will die if Carl cuts his hair- no, just no.
Ah, I prefer that rugged look to Rick. As long as he’s clean. Carl would look AWFUL if he cut his hair!!
for LOST fans everywhere, did ricks ‘we get to come back’ speech remind anyone else of jacks ‘live together die alone’ speech……made me think of that!
on 1 exception that rick should have shot the governer, and jack was fine not shooting the other plane crash survivors….
now hercshels name is hearse-shell….im awful!
He’s the main character. Really this show/story started with him and really is his story. If he dies then you can have spin offs about this world but it will not be the same story.
I 100% AGREE YOU KILL RICK THE SHOW IS DONE !!! GAME OVER……
THE SPIN OFF SHOW WILL CRASH ….IN 2015 ….!!! KIRKMAN KEEP THE COMICS ROLLING……
The good thing about Rick is the tv show still has some good stories to tell about him following the book. I’m sure Rick will die at some point in the book and the show but it will be really hard to watch or read without him in either
I’d be pretty okay with TV show Rick dying.
If Rick and Carl get killed in the show, i will NEVER watch the Walking Dead ever again…..that’s a promise.
where can i watch the latest Walking Dead Episode?
They got to keep him around for Negan at least
