Chandler Riggs Talks About “Uncool” Death Of Carl Grimes

"Man, that does not sound cool at all.”


Former Walking Dead star Chandler Riggs recently opened up about his character’s shocking death from last season. After he literally grew up on the show, the writers decided to kill off the character and it certainly feels like the show has been sinking ever since.

Carl Grimes is still very much alive in the comic book from Robert Kirkman. Then again, so are Rick Grimes and Maggie Rhee, but it sounds like we won’t be seeing any of these characters on AMC as soon as Season 9B of the series. It’s possible these departures are coincidence, but it certainly feels connected.

“I’m going to be honest,” said Chandler Riggs at a Fan Tour in Sacramento. “When [former Showrunner Scott Gimple] told me how it happened…he just kind of said I go into the sewers and just die. I was like, ‘Man, that does not sound cool at all.”
