The Walking Dead Creator Teases Who Will Lead If Rick Dies

Creator of The Walking Dead comics, Robert Kirkman, has once again spoke about the future of the franchise. He’s told us about if and when Rick Grime will die, and who will take over as lead character should he die.

This isn’t the first time Robert Kirkman has spoke about the future of The Walking Dead, nor will it be the last. In the past, Kirkman has suggested that there will never be a cure, and that he set out to write the comics as a zombie story that never ends.

If AMC want to keep the show on air for as long as possible, which they have already hinted at, the network will have to take into consideration that lead character Rick Grimes (played by Andrew Lincoln) will have to die at some point, which raises the question: Who will become the lead character if Rick Grimes dies?

In a recent interview with ComicBook.com, Robert Kirkman confirmed that Rick will have to die at some point, which is pretty obvious, he said “Yeah, of course,” about his protagonist dying, but what we need to know is whether we will see it play out on screen or not.

The writer teased that we might see Rick die in the show by saying Jusith might become the new lead, or a character who will be introduced in the future. “Well, that’s a question, right? Who knows?” Robert Kirkman said. “Maybe it’s a character that hasn’t been introduced yet. Maybe it’ll be Judith, who knows.”

If a character were to take lead role after Rick dies, who would you choose? Would it be Judith?
