Rick Grimes Leaving?

Andrew Lincoln, who's played Rick Grimes from the beginning of AMC's zombie apocalypse hit The Walking Dead, has announced he'll be departing the show during season 9.  Collider reports Lincoln will only be in a half-dozen episodes of season 9, and that Norman Reedus will pick up lead duties after Lincoln departs.  I'll bet it's gonna be an epic departure on the show!
