This is some AWESOME and HUGE news for the series. People who don't know the comic series are going to shit themselves.

I was worried about Lincoln as Rick but he ended up doin a good job so I'll wait ans see how this goes.

Its decent news and all, but they couldn't wait till the season was over to announce it? Kinda need a spoiler alert on news now....

Fucking hate that character.

If things go relative to the comment, the series is gonna get nasty with rape and torture. But I doubt AMC is willing to commit to that kind of thing.

Anyway, I hope the actor is able to pull of the character's fucked up personality. I also hope the series starts making more headway soon.

I hate him too but that's exactly what he was designed to be.

Yeah i doubt AMC will follow the comic book. Im sure the Rape scenes and the likes will be cut.
