The Walking Dead’s Andrew Lincoln Reveals What Comes Next For Rick Grimes

Currently, it's unclear whether or not the Walking Dead film will get a theatrical release or if it will be a "made for TV" movie for AMC. Which answers the question to Sunday night's episode, titled "What Comes After", pretty clearly. However, that doesn't mean that the films will essentially be the same as The Walking Dead episodes that the network produces.

Eventually, Rick lured the walkers to the bridge and in a moment of desperation, still while trying to save the rest of his people, he shot some dynamite and blew up the crossing. That sort of sounds like Gimple and company are leaving open the possibility that Rick could eventually circle back to the main series, so we can go through all of this nonsense again.

Now, we see our survivors a year and a half after the end of the war, rebuilding civilization under Rick's steadfast leadership. We can't be mourning this character forever, after all, and let's not forget that there's still 11 episodes of this season still to go.

It'll be intriguing to see how the big baddie is affected by the Rick news, and how it'll play into his character arc from the rest of season 9 onwards.

Andrew then revealed on The Talking Dead that he would be starring in three TV films, reprising his role as Rick. It would have been a fitting death for Rick, coupled with some badass last words, "I got 'em".

Rick Grimes will live to see another day.

Production is slated to begin sometime in 2019, although there is no air date set and it isn't known where filming will take place. For me to want to do a limited number of episodes [of The Walking Dead] a year wouldn't feel like I was doing my job properly because playing this part has been so all-encompassing. This is the end of Rick Grimes on The Walking Dead.

Bubbling under all of this are the reports that ratings for The Walking Dead have been falling for a few years now, and now hover around what they were for the first season. His hour-long meandering was coloured with a series of flashbacks featuring already-dead cast members, akin to his life flashing before his eyes.

"But I'll just - it was the goodbye, the goodbye was unbelievable, you know, 'cause it's everybody that's worked with me for - alongside the show, you know, for nine years".

"We're going to continue telling Rick Grimes' story in a series of AMC original films. So why don't we try to potentially continue this story in a different way and maybe complete his story so the mothership can continue".
