Fans have begun to wonder if Bernthal is in Georgia shooting flashback scenes, but there is no official words at this time.

Andrew, meanwhile, who plays the role of Rick Grimes on the show, is said to be leaving the post-apocalyptic zombie series during season nine.

He is only set to appear in six of the anticipated 16 episodes in the ninth season.

When asked about Andrew's departure, AMC offered 'no comment' to Deadline.

It's not yet clear whether Rick's exit storyline will be left open for his return, or whether he will be killed off.

Instead the website claimed that 'the exact parameters of that exit are being determined'.

Meanwhile, Norman, who stars as Daryl Dixon, is said to have negotiated a $20million paycheck to stay on the hit series.
