  • The Walking Dead season 9 spoilers Secrets behind Negan and Rick Grimes's chat REVEALED

After nine seasons fighting off walkers on AMC's Walking Dead, Andrew Lincoln announced that he would be exiting the show following tonight's season finale.

While most of the main characters thought Rick had been killed in a bridge explosion, he was rescued and taken to a new community by Anne/Jadis (Pollyanna McIntosh), a story which will be explored in three new Walking Dead movies on AMC.

Are you ready to say goodbye to Lincoln as Rick Grimes?

Ross Marquand, who plays Aaron, offered up a similarly positive message: "Loving father, devoted husband, fantastic leader, great gunslinger", he said.

Now, we see our survivors a year and a half after the end of the war, rebuilding civilization under Rick's steadfast leadership.

However, episode (which aired last night on AMC and airs tonight at 9pm on Fox) left a lot of The Walking Dead fans wondering whether Rick Grimes did really die.


Scott Gimple, former Walking Dead showrunner and current Chief Content Officer of the overall property, will oversee the films, which he teased will be "big evolutions" from what we've seen so far.

'Over the next several years, we're going to be doing specials, new series are quite a possibility, high-quality digital content and then some content that defies description at the moment, ' Gimple added.

The movies, which are expected to begin production next year, will continue the story of the sheriff's deputy. "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".

With Lincoln wanting to spend more time with his family, the decision to branch out into feature films was a win-win for both the actor and AMC, who was looking for other ways to expand the franchise. "It's not the beginning of the end, it's the end of the beginning", Lincoln said. Sure, it makes you a coward, but we won't tell anybody.

"I've always been interested in what's going on out there, you know, whether or not there is contact with the wider world". I want to know the meta of it all. And I suppose to be able to kind of touch upon that in a contained story for me is a very exciting proposition.
