Walking Dead fans devastated as Andrew Lincoln bows out

While Andrew Lincoln may not be returning to The Walking Dead TV series, that doesn't mean he's given up his zombie-killing ways altogether.

"I don't think anyone can say enough good things about Andy", suggests The Walking Dead's Ross Marquand (Aaron) in a farewell video for series lead Andrew Lincoln, who makes his final appearance as Rick Grimes in Sunday's "What Comes After" (AMC, 9/8c). Gimple himself is writing the first of these spinoffs, which is expected to enter production at some point in 2019.

Rick Grimes ain't done.

Instead, he was picked up by Jadis (Pollyanna McIntosh) in the helicopter that was first introduced on the show about a year ago.

We then flashed forward a few years to see a Rick's now preteen daughter Judith Grimes saving a totally different day.

Answers are equally hard to come by when estimating when AMC will release the first Walking Dead television movie, despite Gimple giving a vague promise that the first film is coming "soon [er] rather than later".

However, Obama reminded us how much we miss him when he shut down a heckler mouthing obscenities at an election rally in Miami. He says, as he has before, that he wants to cut USA aid to the countries, threatening that "we'll be stopping very soon".

IYCMI, Rick didn't die on Lincoln's last episode - though everyone thought he did after he blew up the bridge. As The Walking Dead fans well know, the main motivator behind Lincoln's departure from the series was his desire to be closer to his family, who all reside in his home country of England. "There's a lot of story to tell".

"I wanted to finish telling his story in the way that we began it", he told The Hollywood Reporter.

While it may have seemed like a disappointingly ambiguous ending for a character fans have been following for nine seasons, it turns out the planned AMC movies will follow Grimes as his adventure continues, separate from the group featured on the hit show. But this is still the same world of The Walking Dead ...

"Oversaturation is a word I've been thinking about". They're going to be on AMC, most probably.

We won't spoil you on how Rick exited The Walking Dead, but there is obviously a way for him to continue!

Echoing Serratos' tombstone sentiment, Tom Payne (Paul "Jesus" Rovia) also highlighted Rick's hardened personality with his tombstone message, "you didn't know who you were f-ing with", while Callan McAuliffe (Alden) suggested "legend" - not only for Lincoln's character but for the actor himself, he added.
