The Walking Dead kills off main characters left and right, we all know that. But there are a few that fans believe to be untouchable, such as Daryl Dixon, Carol Peletier, and, of course, Rick Grimes himself.
However, during a recent Reddit AMA with fans, TWD creator Robert Kirkman responded to a question asking “Do Rick die?”. “He do eventually,” Kirkman responded, mocking the users misuse of grammar.
Kirkman has described the show as ‘a movie that never ends’ before, and as such it obviously requires characters to evolve, but also leave the show. That being said, this is no guarantee that Rick will die on the show. The Walking Dead still has a new comic book releasing each month and at the current pace it will take the show at least a few years to catch up. Kirkman might have Rick bite it in the comics, but that doesn’t mean it will be adapted on the show. But, it is certainly possible.
The Walking Dead returns with its seventh season later this year.
