*Warning: Spoilers for The Walking Dead season 8 episode 8 ahead.

Anyone who watches The Walking Dead will have one major issue with the show: Carl's hair.

The teenage survivor has been on the zombie hit for eight whole seasons, and we're pretty sure he has never had a haircut. Not once. That is, until now.

Chandler Riggs aka Carl Grimes has FINALLY cut off all of his hair. And fans would be thrilled, if the haircut wasn't in light of TWD's heartbreaking midseason finale. 

We're guessing the chop has a little something to do with the fact that Carl has been bit, and, according to the TWD's showrunner, won't be returning after a seriously tragic exit in Season 9. 

"The bite is going to play out as we've seen bites play out, and it's very important to Carl's story and the entire story, what happens in the next episode," showrunner Scott Gimple said on TWD's after show, The Talking Dead.

Couple that with Chandler's new haircut and we have a pretty good indication that Carl's final scenes will be in episode 9, the midseason premiere, in February.

However, Carl's impending death has been so controversial that fans have created a petition demanding that Gimple be fired. According to reports, Chandler had no plans to quit TWD and it was reportedly Gimple's call to kill off Rick's son - one of the most important characters on the show. Obviously, fans aren't too happy with that. 

Well, if there's one pro to getting killed off, it's finally being able to cut that mop of hair.
