According to Chandler Riggs' father, Chandler maybe leaving the hit TV series.
In a mysterious Facebook post, William Riggs, father of the Carl actor, thanked The Walking Dead's
cast and crew for the past seven years. The post was later deleted, but according to Comicbook.com, here's what he said:
"7 year contract completed! Grateful to AMC, Cast & Crew, TWD fan base, and especially Chandler for always being 100% dedicated. Whether is was getting up at 4 AM, working in the freezing cold past 2 AM, leaving his friends and carefree kiddom behind, scrambling to make up missed schoolwork, he has done it without complaint and always made me proud & amazed to be his dad!"
While it does not sound like Chandler is leaving the show. It does sound like a lot like a goodbye. This is the type of open letter many actors write when their show comes to an end, or when their character is written off.
The timeline for this Facebook post also adds to the speculation, as the seventh season of The Walking Dead
finished filming on Friday. In addition, Chandler recently announced his acceptance into Auburn University, which definitely sounds like Riggs will be too busy to concentrate on the zombie apocalypse.
But, it is important to note that Carl's story in the comics is far from over. Could Carl be leaving The Walking Dead?
We will have to wait and see.
