The Walking Dead continues to bring in a record number of viewers each year. With its huge fan base and no shortage of storylines, the popularity of the zombie series won't end anytime soon. As everyone knows, the main character in TWD is Rick Grimes, played by British actor Andrew Lincoln. Although Rick is the focus of the television series and the comic books, could he ever die? Many fans claim that it will never happen because if he dies, then the popular zombie series is over. So, what does creator Robert Kirkman have to say about it? His answer on if Rick could eventually die may shock you.
Rick has been through a lot since TWD began. Over the past six seasons. Lincoln's character has done some unimaginable things. However, there were also factors that led up to Rick's response. Other zombie apocalypse survivors in TWD live according to their own rules. One extreme example is what happened with the people at Terminus. As fans remember, Gareth's group became cannibals, and Rick's group barely escaped.
Negan's introduction on the Season 6 finale of TWD did not go the way viewers thought it would. By the end of the episode, it was unclear who had lost their head to Lucille. In the comic books, it is Glenn who dies, but the Season 7 premiere of TWD could reveal someone different as Negan's victim.
