Rick Grimes and Michonne to return in 2023 Walking Dead spin-off series

Fresh out of SDCC, AMC have announced that Andrew Lincoln and Danai Gurira will reprise their roles as Rick Grimes and Michonne for a special six-part Walking Dead spin-off series in 2023. This series will replace the previously planned Rick Grimes solo movie.

Here’s the official series description:

“This series presents an epic love story of two characters changed by a changed world. Kept apart by distance. By an unstoppable power. By the ghosts of who they were. Rick and Michonne are thrown into another world, built on a war against the dead… And ultimately, a war against the living. Can they find each other and who they were in a place and situation unlike any they’ve ever known before? Are they enemies? Lovers? Victims? Victors? Without each other, are they even alive — or will they find that they, too, are the Walking Dead?”

Speaking about the announcement, Lincoln said “This has been the most extraordinary journey playing Rick Grimes for the best part of a decade. The friendships I’ve made along the way are deep and lasting, so it’s fitting that I finally get to complete the story with Danai and Scott and the rest of the TWD family. I’m so excited to be returning to the screen as Rick, reuniting with Danai as Michonne, and bringing the fans an epic love story to add to the Walking Dead Universe.”

Gurira added “Michonne and this TWD family has meant so much to me, and to continue the journey of these beloved characters, alongside Scott and Andy, both creatively and in front of the camera, and bringing The Walking Dead fans something truly special is just glorious. I can’t wait to pick up the katana again.”

In the meantime, the final episodes of The Walking Dead will premiere on October 2nd 2022, and you can feast your eyes on the official teaser trailer below.

    One of the most extraordinary and beloved television shows of all time. The show made so many of it’s stars household names. I never missed an episode and have started watching the show all over again! Please, please don’t cancel this show.

  4. They Simply must make a season 12 there’s so much story left unsaid. Rick grimes is still alive, and as far as the common wealth they are being exposed as such there will be an uproar in the communities. Also Michonne was very much alive and linked up with the heard of people walking they can just lease us in suspense like this I was not a fan for years then was like okay ill watch a couple qell that couple turned into absolutely loveing the show well done to all who played roles in this film I ask that we brainstorm if you need any ghost writers let me know I can pitch ideas too much to now hit seasons 12&13 tho it’s very do able.
