He told an audience from Comic-Con: "There seems to be an elephant in the room and I think many of you want to ask a question whether or not this is my last year

" This will be my last season playing the role of Rick Grimes. "

Fans in attendance groaned at the news.

Lincoln added," I love this show, it means everything to me. I like the people who make this show. I also particularly like people who watch the show. It was the most extraordinary and beautiful experience of my career, largely because of you. "
