Andrew Lincoln to Return in Multiple Walking Dead Movies

  • Norman Reedus has played Daryl Dixon on The Walking Dead since 2010

But don't get too excited, Lincoln will still no longer be appearing in the Walking Dead's TV series. Although Sunday marked Andrew Lincoln's final episode of the hit post-apocalyptic AMC series, he will reprise the character of Rick Grimes in a trilogy of TV movies for the network, AMC announced. Which answers the question to Sunday night's episode, titled "What Comes After", pretty clearly.

As for what fans of The Walking Dead can expect moving forward, peep the trailer for the next 3 episodes below.

The Walking Dead will air in the United Kingdom on November 5 at 9pm on FOX. Jeffrey Dean Morgan, who plays the villainous Negan, led the cast with one of the more heartfelt tombstone suggestions, proposing "Here lies Rick Grimes, the pain in the ass that I will love until the day I die".

The British star has played police officer-turned-survivor Rick Grimes in the post-apocalyptic U.S. series since its inception in 2010. The current plan is for at least three movies, though there's flexibility. We're going to dig into the past and see old characters.

'It is about who he is and who he's going to be - and certainly how he deals with the situation he's in, ' Gimple added. It would have been a fitting death for Rick, coupled with some badass last words, "I got 'em".


The British actor's departure was confirmed earlier this year and fans have been waiting to see how Rick would be written out. The first of the films, featuring the next step in Rick's story, should be shooting next year.

A viewer said: "Gotta give a shoutout to Andrew Lincoln for beautifully portraying Rick Grimes for over 8 years".

The move allows Lincoln to spend more time with his family, with a production time of just two months compared to the nine months it takes for a full season of the show. Let us know down below!

Gimple called the films a "big evolution of what we've been doing on the show".

"I've always been interested in what's going on out there, you know, whether or not there is contact with the wider world". We're going to tell the story of what happens after that helicopter flight, and these are going to be big, epic entertainments. "So the idea of being able to contain the story and still work just as hard and tell a different story in maybe a more expansive narrative way seemed very exciting to me".
