Rick Grimes Lives! Andrew Lincoln Led Walking Dead Movies in the works

The Walking Dead new

Former The Walking Dead star Steven Yeun shared a photo of his co-stars Andrew Lincoln and Scott Wilson on his official Instagram.

The end is not nigh for Rick Grimes, apparently. Tonight, after his exit from the series proper, AMC announced that Andrew Lincoln had signed aboard for of a series of upcoming movies starring the character that will tell his story after being carted off via helicopter, mortally wounded.

As fans of the hit horror drama likely saw during Sunday's episode - which was billed as Lincoln's last - the beloved character didn't die, as many people expected he would.

As we've been told repeatedly by the marketing, this week's episode of The Walking Dead, What Comes After, was Rick Grimes' last. So, that leaves the door open to continue his story and sure enough, that's what AMC's made a decision to do, with the network announcing that they're working on a series of AMC Studios Original Films, with the first one going into production next year.

Wayne Rooney set for England farewell match
His last global appearance was as captain in a 3-0 win over Scotland at Wembley in a 2018 World Cup qualifier in November 2016. Playing for England has always been special to me.

According to AMC, the first film will explore exactly where Rick is taken, and "what he faces in a new corner of the zombie apocalypse". "We want to break new ground with different, distinct stories, all part of the same world that's captured our imagination for almost a decade of the Dead".

Lincoln wanted to leave the series so he could spend more time with his family in England, and the films spawned from a conversation Lincoln had with Gimple, when he served as showrunner on The Walking Dead. AMC notes that these Rick Grimes movies are only the beginning of what's meant to be another expansion of The Walking Dead universe, as additional films, specials, series, and digital content are in the works.

Echoing Serratos' tombstone sentiment, Tom Payne (Paul "Jesus" Rovia) also highlighted Rick's hardened personality with his tombstone message, "you didn't know who you were f-ing with", while Callan McAuliffe (Alden) suggested "legend" - not only for Lincoln's character but for the actor himself, he added.

Should You Keep Watching The Walking Dead Without Rick Grimes? "I know nothing! [Laughs.] There are lots of moving parts to this extraordinary franchise". And I suppose to be able to kind of touch upon that in a contained story for me is a very exciting proposition ...
