The Walking Dead is currently airing its ninth season at 9pm/8pm central on AMC in the USA.
In the UK, new episodes of The Walking Dead air at 9pm on Fox in the UK.
The cast of The Walking Dead will soon get a major shake-up following the departure of Rick Grimes (played by Andrew Lincoln), who is set to leave at some point during season nine.
Until that happens, here’s how the cast of The Walking Dead season nine stands.
Rick Grimes - Andrew Lincoln
The Walking Dead’s lead character is Rick Grimes, a former sheriff who woke from a coma to find himself in the apocalypse - and will soon will be exiting the show.
He is played by Andrew Lincoln, a British actor who before TWD was best known for his role as Edgar “Egg” Cook in This Life and for romancing Keira Knightly in Love Actually.
