There has been a lot of speculation that Chandler Rigg would be leaving The Walking Dead, presumably to go off to college, as his 7-year ontract with the show is ending. His father originally posted a Facebook post stating:

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!”

His mom then posted the following Instagram message which seemed to further add to the thoughts that he would be leaving:

But soon after this speculation happened, she responded to it with:

“Don’t over analyze. His seven year contract is up. That’s all he was saying, nothing else. Pretty big accomplishment for a child actor (and for the parent who had to quit his job for this child to be able to follow his dream).”

So there it is people, it looks like Carl is safe for now and won’t be leaving the show anytime soon.
