Rick Grimes may be through as far as the TV series The Walking Dead is concerned, but we haven’t seen the last of the iconic character played by Andrew Lincoln.
Scott M. Gimple, the Chief Content Officer for The Walking Dead Universe, has announced that Lincoln will reprise the role in a series of original, feature length films for AMC – production of which could start as early as 2019.
The films, produced by AMC Studios, will pick up following the badly wounded Rick’s being helicoptered away during tonight’s episode of The Walking Dead.
AMC’s 20th Anniversary of Fear Fest continues through October 27th with new episodes of The Walking Dead, more instalments of AMC Visionaries: Eli Roth’s History of Horror and a host of scary marathons: a Halloween marathon; a Stephen King marathon; a Slasher-thon; a Demons Inside Marathon; a Hellraiser marathon, and a Friday the 13th marathon.
Set in the late 1970s, yet sharply contemporary, The Little Drummer Girl weaves an explosive story of espionage and international intrigue; of love and betrayal.
AMC brings John Le Carré and director Chan-Wook Park together for this six-hour, three-night limited series event – starring Florence Pugh and Alexander Skarsgård – that premieres on AMC on November 19th (9/8C).
AMC has renewed its ‘mystical modern-day fable,’ Lodge 49 ahead of its first season finale.
Lodge 49 is ‘a light-hearted, endearing modern fable set in Long Beach, California about a disarmingly optimistic local ex-surfer, Dud (Russell), who’s drifting after the death of his father and collapse of the family business.’
Last season brought the culmination of “All Out War,” which pitted Rick Grimes and his group of survivors against the Saviors and their cunning leader, Negan.
Now, we see our survivors a year and a half after the end of the war, rebuilding civilization under Rick’s steadfast leadership. Nothing can prepare them for the formidable force they are about to encounter, which threatens the very idea of civilization that our survivors have worked so hard to build.
Blurring the fine lines between love and hate; truth and fiction; and right and wrong; The Little Drummer Girl weaves a suspenseful and explosive story of espionage and high-stakes international intrigue.
The Little Drummer Girl will premiere in the U.S. as a three-night television event with two-hour episodes on November 19, 20 and 21st (9/8C).
“Better Call Saul” cast members Bob Odenkirk, Giancarlo Esposito, Rhea Seehorn, Patrick Fabian and Michael Mando, along with Executive Producers and Showrunners Vince Gilligan and Peter Gould joined moderator Bill Burr for the AMC series’ first ever Comic Con panel.
