“Leaving ‘Walking Dead’ wasn't my decision,” Riggs said. It was all story-related. It made sense story-wise for it to happen for Rick and Michonne and all the other characters.”

Andrew Lincoln, who portrays Rick Grimes, Carl’s father on the hit program, told The Hollywood Reporter he was shocked to learn Riggs’ character would be killed off.

“Scott Gimple called me up and said, ‘You’re going to hate this one.’ He’s very good about alerting the cast when there’s going to be a (character) death,” Lincoln said. “I just didn’t speak for a minute. I always thought Carl was going to be the one who led the show forward; that Rick would hand over his boots and revolver when he walked off into the sunset in Season 28.”
