It was a sad day for fans of the television show The Walking Dead when it was revealed that Andrew Lincoln was leaving the show after its ninth season. At San Diego Comic-Con, co-stars Jeffrey Dean Morgan and Norman Reedus gave their thoughts on the departure of Andrew Lincoln and Lincoln himself has now revealed his reasoning as to why he decided to leave The Walking Dead, a TV show he has been a huge part of since its first episode.
Here is what Andrew Lincoln had to say to EW Radio about why he decided to leave The Walking Dead:
“Completing the show was like releasing air finally. And it was very satisfying the last two episodes in particular. But doing a panel and having to talk to [thousands of] people in Hall H and then have all my friends hug me at the end? The s— got real, is the truth of the matter.”
“I have two young children, and I live in a different country, and they become less portable as they get older. It was that simple. It was time for me to come home.”
Lincoln also gave comments about what to expect from Season 9 of The Walking Dead:
“The world is deteriorating. Food is scarce, the Hilltop’s the main sort of food source, communications are breaking down, we don’t have gas anymore and we’re on horseback, and we’ve run out of bullets. 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. And that’s where we meet a fellow band of warriors just as it’s about to kick off. It’s a fragile peace.”
