Quite how this will occur remains to be seen, but he'll appear in just six of the run's 16 episodes with Norman Reedus' fan favourite Daryl Dixon promoted to main character duties in his absence. This news is a lot for fans to take in and simply put, should spell the end of the AMC zombie series. Full disclosure: I am a loyal follower of The Walking Dead who has been slightly disconcerted by the series' recent evolution into a punching bag for … [Read more...] about Why Andrew Lincoln’s departure is a death knell for The Walking Dead

Lennie James's relentless schedule would turn a less dedicated actor into a zombie. The 52-year-old has just bowed out of The Walking Dead after eight seasons as stick-wielding fan-favourite Morgan Jones and will now transition, along with his character, into the upcoming fourth series of spin-off Fear the Walking Dead.
