Season 9 Art:
TheWalkingDead_S09_001.jpg


Has a Fallout 3 vibe to it that I love. If they do end up writing Andrew Lincoln out of the series this season, hopefully it's not because they killed him off but because he became PRESIDENT OF THE UNITED EFFING STATES OF AMERICA.

:D

So apparently cars are finally not run-able anymore in the time skip for the next season and we're back to horse and carriage and it's going to be more like the old west. And a new showrunner. So I'll give it another chance.

This is not a spoiler, btw, but direct from pictures and info in the latest Entertainment Weekly coverage of Comic Con.

There's apparently going to be an 18-24 month time jump between the last season finale and the season premiere. Then, after Andrew Lincoln leaves the show after several episodes, there's going to be a more significant time jump -- 5 or 6 years -- for the remainder of the season.

Given all the cast changes. that sounds like a pretty good move. I still think this season is going to have the ratings crash and fan backlash akin to Seasons Eight and Nine of The X-Files (when Duchovny stopped being a regular on the show) though.

For the record, S8 of The X-Files was still great- Duchovny or no Duchovny.

How can the show survive without Rick? It's his story!!! It's his view of the apocalypse that we have been following for the last eight years! It was madness to let Carl go considering his role is still on going in the comics as well! A lot of fans are going to vacate the series with this stupidity! Gimpel is aptly named!

There were no charges. Just the writings of a jealous ex. Nothing in her fictitious story was illegal even if true. And there was never anything said about "beating". All of his ex girlfriends have come to his defense. And even AMC's own private detectives could find no reason to believe her. This whole ordeal was simply over reaction to a blog post by someone who was looking for attention and it blew up in her face. There was never any reports to police or charges, no crimes, just the lynch mob that no longer believes someone is innocent until prove guilty.

She even edited the story a few days later to change the "abuse" to "violated" which I am sure she was told to do by legal council because "sexual abuse" is a legal term, and "sexually violated" is a feeling and not a legal term. She also tried to blackmail him which is a crime that for some reason nobody seems to mention.

I am not saying he is completely in the right, but everything she described is just him being a crappy boyfriend, noting more.

It has also come to light that after the breakup, she was texting him desperately trying to get back together. That does not sound like she was a victim, just a crazy ex. Unfortunately the "metoo" movement has turned into such a reactionary group that they are hurting the women who are really being abused by crying wolf all the time.

If Andrew Lincoln wants to leave, that's fine...certainly can't fault him for that. What I don't understand is why they made it public, and so quickly. Really ruins any element of surprise there would have been. I have to wonder if it's a desperation move by AMC with the falling ratings that they're thinking this might get more people to tune in, at least in the beginning.

More people to tune in? How's that again? It's Rick's story and by him leaving we lose the feeling that it's going to conclude with a brave new world just a show to make the suits even more money!

Fear obviously thought Kim Dickens was expendable as the most relate-able lead, and Rick's pretty much worn out his pained expressions, so the show needs a jolt to move forward and it will either thrive or go bust after this.

In today's entertainment news world, it would have been hard to conceal Lincoln planning to leave the show. We already knew about Maggie leaving. I think they look at it as publicity for the season to attract some more curious eyeballs, and not a negative.

Maggie's leaving too? I really need to just not read this thread. So much for spoiler tags.
Yeah, I would have liked to have known nothing too, but it was news headlines all of the internet that spoiled it for me. There seemed no escaping it. It seems the producers of the show WANT everyone to know who's all leaving.

I've recently read that Lauren Cohan has settled her dispute with the suits! Not sure if that means that she is staying or not?
