Andrew Lincoln To Return As Rick Grimes In The Walking Dead Movies

A teaser of the November 4 "What Comes After" episode unveiled on the penultimate episode on October 28 shows Lincoln's Grimes revisiting scenes from the first season of the Frank Darabont created show, as well as a mysterious helicopter hovering around - which leaves a lot of possibilities if you think about it. So what does the future hold for 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 know that while Rick is gone, he's not forgotten.

Scott Gimple, the show's executive producer, rounded out the cast suggestions with his own more philosophical response: "Here lies a person who had to stop being a person to be a person".

Jon Bernthal returns to The Walking Dead fold on Sunday's episode, and though we don't have details about the nature of his return we do know what he looks like thanks to Greg Nicotero, who shared this photo of Lincoln and Bernthal on set. The first film will follow Rick and reveal where he was taken, and what new challenges will face him there.

The 45-year-old actor will continue playing the beloved character for three feature-length movies that will air on AMC.

The discovery had led to the cancellation on Thursday of a political event hosted by " Broad City " co-star Ilana Glazer . Anti-semitic incidents have been on the rise across the country in the last two years, in particular in New York City .


Tonight's episode of The Walking Dead was touted as the last for Andrew Lincoln's Rick Grimes, but fans expecting the character to be killed off were thrown for a loop.

I wanted to finish telling his story in the way that we began it: "with a filmic sensibility on a bigger scale and a more contained story - with an end point", he added. "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".

Speaking on the after-show Talking Dead, Andrew said: "It's not the beginning of the end, it's the end of the beginning". "And I like the idea that we get to tell a bigger story, maybe with a sort of wider vista".

"I've always been interested in what's going on out there, you know, whether or not there is contact with the wider world".

The move allows Lincoln to spend the time with his family at home in England as he's been wanting to do, as a production shoot of sixty days is far less time-taxing than the nine month shoots for TWD.
