There is hardly any of the original characters from Season 1 left in The Walking Dead and now fans are speculating that Carl could be the next victim to go!
Chandler Riggs, who has portrayed Carl since the first season of the series, sparked rumours he might be leaving The Walking Dead earlier this month when he revealed has been offered a place at university.
‘ayy i just got accepted into auburn,’ the 17-year-old tweeted.
It’s very possible Chandler could remain on the show and still attend classes at the college, as Auburn University is less than two hours by car from the show’s set in Atlanta, Georgia.
However fans are presuming the worse and think Carl will join zombie skid row along with the others.
One tweet said “They better not kill off Carl in Walking Dead”
Another asked AMC directly “What episode will they kill Carl Grimes off?”
Chandler’s mother, Gina-Ann Riggs, then insisted on her own Instagram page that it didn’t necessarily mean anything.
‘Don’t over analyze,’ she wrote in a response to someone else’s comment. ‘His seven year contract is up. That’s all he was saying, nothing else.
‘Pretty big accomplishment for a child actor (and for the parent who had to quit his job for this child to be able to follow his dream).’
Let’s just hope they keep Carl in, i’m still getting over Glenn’s murder!
