Everyone’s talking about: The Walking Dead

Apparently, Rick’s exit from the show is going to be extremely emotional. 

One of the show’s creators, Robert Kirkman addressed the situation at New York Comic-Con, acknowledging to fans during his panel that losing Rick from The Walking Dead will be “heartbreaking”.

“It’s a deep bench on the Walking Dead show,” he was quick to add. “I know we’re all upset over the loss of Carl and equally upset over what’s going to happen with Rick. But we all still love Michonne, Carol and all the other characters. Negan’s still around.

There’s a lot of great stuff coming. Those changes, while they bring us further from the comic, aren’t going to limit us from adapting stories from the comic. You’re still getting the Whisperers this season, and it’s spectacular. There are some creepy, intense moments coming from the comic. There’s a lot to be excited about.”
