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.
You have to wonder how much longer Rick and Co. can go on. They so rarely catch any kind of real break. The new trailer for the Winter Premiere of Season 5 suggests that this is a trend that will continue. Check it out after the jump.
The Walking Dead returns to AMC on Sunday, February 8th (9/8C).
