[Robert Kirkman] also confirmed Grimes’ fate – although added that his death could happen “any time between now and 50 years from now”.
“No-one is safe,” he added of the character played by Andrew Lincoln. “Hopefully there have been points where you go, ‘Is this it? Is this where Rick dies?’ And he doesn’t. One day, the moment will come where you go, ‘Oh my god, it is!’ It could happen any time between now and 50 years from now.”
The Walking Dead is currently renewed through Season 9 in 2018.
The Walking Dead wont last 50 more years, if the reaper has anything to do with it, but there are no plans to end the AMC TV show any time soon. Will Rick die before the show does? Can The Walking Dead survive without its central character? Or is Rick’s ultimate death the end game for the show? Stay tuned…
