The Walking Dead Season 9 spoilers have allegedly revealed when the death of Rick Grimes is going to take place. An often reliable fan website called The Spoiling Dead Fans has posted some information on when Andrew Lincoln’s character will seemingly meet his fate. As previously reported on Monsters and Critics, this will likely be the final season for Lincoln and Lauren Cohan, who plays Maggie.
According to TSDF, the story of Rick Grimes comes to an end during Episode 5. A user by the name of ShinyFireFly, who is identified as the owner and is very active on the forums and in a Facebook group about the show, came forward to confirm the news. There had been numerous other The Walking Dead Season 9 spoilers about the future of Rick Grimes, but now it appears that his story is about to come to an end.

It was also recently revealed that Rick is going to be facing new threats in the upcoming season of TWD. This is due to his decision to show Negan mercy during the Season 8 finale. Rather than let Negan die, Rick worked to save his life. This upset and angered other people in their camp, including Maggie, who had her husband (Glenn) murdered by Negan.
So how does Rick die on The Walking Dead? There is still a bit of mystery surrounding that plot point, but The Spoiling Dead Fans indicates that it will have something to do with a large herd of zombies.
If correct, this is likely to frustrate a lot of fans who have closely followed the character through the first eight seasons of the show. The consolation that some fans have found with this information is that Rick will soon be with his son Carl, who also lost his life on the show.
