It’s always interesting to see which storylines they’ll keep and cut in The Walking Dead, and now the producers have chimed in on one big rumor we’ve heard about season four.

Potential spoilers ahead!

Not too long ago, some set pics surfaced that showed Rick (Andrew Lincoln) sporting a bandaged hand — which got fans buzzing that creator Robert Kirkman and new showrunner Scott Gimple might introduce the comic storyline that had the group’s leader lose his hand.

Well, the folks at TV Guide were smart enough to ask them about it, and here is what they had to say. Check out the excerpt below:

Pictures have leaked online that suggest — SPOILER ALERT — Rick may lose his hand, like in the comics. What do you say to that?

Kirkman: I will say Scott Gimple is a huge comic fan and may possibly be trying to steer me into letting the show be closer to what the comic books are. Also people could be misinterpreting those photos. Who knows?

Gimple: I may have convinced him. Possibly. We may not know that.

Do you think Rick’s hand is on the chopping block this year?
