The Walking Dead is about to face some major changes as the lead character since the first episode will be leaving the series very soon.
It isn’t known yet which characters in the series will be taking the reigns from the long-standing leading of the group once he’s gone. To many it seems realistic and reasonable for Rick’s right-hand man, and well-known fan favorite Daryl Dixon (Norman Reedus) to take control.
After facing the complications that Andrew Lincoln leaving will produce, the show has decided the best way to move forwards would be to implement the use of a significant time-jump to smooth over the process of losing the show’s main protagonist.
The story will resume after a large amount of time has passed, and will cover the stories of the remaining groups of survivors trying to live in relative peace together in the apocalyptic world.
The Walking Dead‘s showrunner Scott Gimple appeared on last Sunday’s Talking Dead episode, and eluded to some upcoming ‘big’ news. Fans should keep their eyes and ears open.
I work on both shows. I help these gentlemen, I help [The Walking Dead showrunner] Angela Kang. We work on the stories together, I consult on the episodes as they go through, and producing.
“And then beyond that, working on the future of The Walking Dead. And per that, we’re gonna have something to discuss. We’re gonna have a family meeting, all of The Walking Dead fans — people who haven’t watched the show, people who are going to watch the show — we’re gonna talk about something really big soon.
For fans it is reasonable to believe this could be suggestive of a future project involving both The Walking Dead and Fear The Walking Dead, could we be in for another crossover event that used the time-jump to bring the two series closer together?
